Monday, September 26, 2016: Understanding privilege and practicing solidarity--part 1

"Now you have touched the women, you have struck a rock." from South African sisters' freedom struggle

Today's show begins with two important and empowering women-led events happening in Spain and Gaza, the Truth & Reclamation Pilgrimage and the Women's Boat to Gaza.

Actress LisaGay Hamilton says about her participation on the boat to Gaza: “It is an honor to be here and join this extraordinary group of women. This issue is bigger than me, than any of us. As a mother, as a daughter, as a sister, I cannot help thinking of Palestinian women in Gaza, who live in an open-air prison because of the occupation. It is so painful to think of them, we have to take action to end the blockade of Gaza.” Read LisaGay Hamilton's Counterpunch op ed  Why I am on the women's boat to Gaza.
