First Nations & Palestine: the Connection

These two episodes were taped at the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions panel discussion held at Portland State University on February 24, 2015, hosted by Students United for Palestinian Equal Rights.

The speaker in Part 1 is Kanahus Manuel, mother and warrior from the Secwpemc Nation in Canada, talking about how British Columbia does not recognize her tribes right to the land.

Part 2 begins with a talk be Cecilie Surasky, Deputy Director of Jewish Voice for Peace, a national organization working on Palestinian rights from the perspective of American Jews. Rounding out the conversation is Dr. Michael Yellow Bird, director of Indigenous Tribal Studies at North Dakota State University, who makes the connection between how Palestinians and Native Americans are treated as savages so that others may claim their land, saying that nobody lives there.

This show was taped, produced and edited by PC Peri with assistance from Dawn Regier and Dan Handelman.

Also appearing at this event was Omar Barghouti, featured in a separate show, "Omar Barghouti: Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions" (VB #95.12).

The event was sponsored by Students United for Palestinian Equal Rights (SUPER).
