Full Circle 4.6.18 — #Right2Return: The Movement to Free Palestine

In January, members of the Palestinian Youth Movement joined host Cat Petru to discuss the history of colonization and occupation of Palestine by the settler state of Israel.

Tonight, as Israeli attacks persist against Palestinians marching for the right to return to their homeland, two members of PYM join us to:

  • Discuss 17-year-old Palestinian political prisoner Ahed Tamimi
  • And the latest in her case and its implications for young political prisoners
  • Then we will get an update from writer Rawan Yaghi on the ground in Gaza
  • And we want to hear from you – what questions do you have for our guests about Palestinian liberation?

All that tonight on Full Circle.

Happy B-Day Ahed Tamimi

About First Voice Apprenticeship

First Voice Apprenticeship is an apprenticeship program at KPFA 94.1 FM in Berkeley and is designed to provide comprehensive broadcast, technical, and administrative skills training in radio. First Voice also aims to build and strengthen community and empower our participants to find their voice and tell their stories. The First Voice program is based on community building, a collaborative work environment and passing on our skills and stories. We focus on bringing women and people of color into media and work in partnership with Pacifica community radio station KPFA and other community media outlets, both locally and nationally. The First Voice Apprenticeship Program is currently 18 months. Everyone is required to spend one business day each week working at KPFA, as well as two class nights. The dayshift is a three hour shift and apprentices do administrative and production tasks. The dayshift runs on an intergenerational group learning model, with each phase teaching the next, and integrates service to the station, skills acquired in classes, motivation and leadership.
