Kevin Foster talks with Zia Laboff

 

As the genocide in Gaza continues into its sixth month, activists and groups in solidarity with Palestinian freedom continue to organize for a cease-fire and an end to US military support for Israel. Journalist Kevin Foster talks with Zia Laboff, an organizer with Jewish Voice for Peace Portland. They discuss the role of Jewish people in the Palestinian rights movement, recent local actions, including the successful campaign to push the Multnomah County Commissioners to pass a cease-fire resolution, and approaches to some of the tensions and challenges in organizing. Zia Laboff recommends following @pdx4afree_palestine on instagram for updates on actions.
