5/7 - A Way Forward for Israel-Palestine

Air date: 
Wed, 05/07/2014 - 8:00am - 11:00am
Short Description: 
A special program on how we can achieve peace with justice
With the breakdown of peace talks, expansion of settlements, and harsh rhetoric currently passing for 'dialogue' in the Israel-Palestine conflict, it's sometimes hard to have hope that this entrenched conflict can come to a peaceful resolution.

On this special program, we'll show you that there is still reason to hope.  Max Blumenthal, Miko Peled, and Ali Abunimah are all deeply involved in this issue, and all have this in common: they believe that there will be peace with justice in Israel-Palestine in our lifetimes.

We'll bring you the voices of an Israeli, a Palestinian and an American who are on the frontlines in the struggle for a just peace in Israel-Palestine.

Violence Against Sex Workers
William Madden, Rogelio Guangelista, Eric Garcia

Violence against sex-workers happens daily and often goes unreported and unaddressed. Due to the nature of the profession, the growing population of sex-workers in Portland is forced to live outside the
everyday awareness of most residents. Because a blind eye is often turned towards this population it is difficult to provide care for survivors of violence and to prevent future attacks. This segment
highlights the Sex-Worker Outreach Coalition (SWOC) and Portland’s Bad
Date Line.
