This month on the Recovery Zone, the focus is on Palestine. Host Stephanie Potter speaks with Alaina Melville and Joe Walsh on what is happening on the ground in both the West Bank and Gaza, how the US got involved and what's happening here in Oregon.  Alaina shares her experiences from a work camp she attended this summer  in the West Bank with the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions (ICAHD).   Joe Walsh, a long time anti-war veteran and Palestianian rights activist, recently finished a trial where he sued the city over his unlawful arrest at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) fundraiser protest in March of 2009.
