Roger Waters on Palestine: Not Backing Down
After a judge ruled a panel can move forward Saturday at the University of Massachusetts Amherst on “Israel, Free Speech, and the Battle for Palestinian Human Rights,” we speak with one of the event’s scheduled participants: Roger Waters, co-founder of Pink Floyd, one of the most popular rock bands of all time. He says he welcomes the lawsuit that challenged the event, because “what it does is it serves to shine a light on the predicament of the Palestinian people.”

Israeli Settlers are Victims of Occupation Too
Israelis, who get enrolled into their government’s oppression of the Palestinian people are victims just like those they oppress,
iconic Palestinian activist and former prisoner Ahed Tamimi told RT’s Going Underground.
“I pity [the Israelis] because they are dehumanized. They are only filled with hatred. It is not about occupying the land, it is
about occupying the minds,” she said.
Tamimi, who got international fame after being arrested by Israel for slapping a soldier, made the argument about Israelis
being victimized by the policies of their government after being released from an Israeli jail.
The young activist spoke to program host Afshin Rattansi ahead of the first anniversary of the Great Return March, the ongoing
mass protest by Palestinians living in the Gaza Strip staged near Israel’s border wall. Israel justifies its heavy-handed response
to the protest, which resulted in at least 183 people being killed and over 9,000 injured
Longing for Palestine: Art of Resistance
Water shortages, movement restrictions, and the constant presence of the Israeli military – this is what life looks like
for millions of Palestinians living in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. With no end in sight to the decades-long conflict,
protests and clashes continue. RTD travels to the occupied territories to meet people of the Palestinian resistance,
from members of the Tamimi family to activists expressing their anger and pain through art.

Al-Nakba: The Palestinian Catastrophe
Al-Nakba: The Palestinian Catastrophe, Episode 1
"The Nakba did not begin in 1948. Its origins lie over two centuries ago…."
So begins this four-part series on the 'nakba', meaning the 'catastrophe', about the history of the Palestinian exodus that
led to the first Arab-Israeli war in 1948, and the establishment of the state of Israel.
This sweeping history starts back in 1799 with Napoleon's attempted advance into Palestine to check British expansion
and his appeal to the Jews of the world to reclaim their land in league with France.
The narrative moves through the 19th century and into the 20th century with the British Mandate in Palestine and
comes right up to date in the 21st century and the ongoing 'nakba' on the ground.
Arab, Israeli and Western intellectuals, historians and eye-witnesses provide the central narrative which is accompanied
by archive material and documents, many only recently released for the first time.
