WHAT IS ‘THE PALESTINE SOLIDARITY SESSIONS’?

Throughout the month of August, CKUT brings you “The Palestine Solidarity Sessions”, an in-depth series focusing on the issue of Palestine, and what can be done. Each segment will feature voices of Palestinians and their supporters throughout the world calling for a just peace – voices that are all too often left out of the mainstream media debate.

This new series underlines the importance of the work we are doing as independent community journalists to engage in truth-telling.  Its main aim is to give our listeners tools to support the Palestinians in their struggle, to get involved in the Palestine-solidarity movement and to help create awareness about the Palestinian plight.

Tune in on CKUT, 90.3 FM in Montreal, or online at www.ckut.ca during the following shows:
The Morning After, Tuesdays 7am
Off the Hour, Wednesdays 5-6pm
Under the Olive Tree, Thursdays 11am
