Rob Robinson on the international fight for housing!

Rob Robinson is a homeless and housing rights activist based in Brooklyn, New York, and does national and international organizing work with the National Economic and Social Rights Initiative, NESRI. Rob was in Montreal last week for the World Social Forum and sat down with CKUT’s Aaron Lakoff for an in-depth discussion on gentrification, the global right to housing, and taking back the land.

We join Wendy Goldsmith, of the Freedom Flotilla Coalition, to talk about the Women’s Boat to Gaza initiative. The Freedom Flotilla Coalition have been challenging Israel’s illegal blockade for many years now and this first boat, named Amal-Hope, will leave Barcelona in September, carrying women from around the world to the shores of Gaza in protest of bombings and the blockade in Gaza.
