Voice of Palestine www.voiceofpalestine.ca  will be interviewing Huwaida Arraf on Tue. evening Oct. 23, 2007 at 8:20pm (Wed. morning Oct. 24 5:20am Palestine time), about the failed "One Voice" Campaign and the current situation in the Palestinian occupied territories.

Huwaida is a cofounder of the International Solidarity Movement - Palestine and a spokesperson for ANOTHER VOICE http://www.anothervoice-palestine.org/ that was formed to challenge the so called "OneVoice's 'One Million Voices to End the Conflict' campaign".  Due to the vocal and organized opposition to this fraud the "One Voice" concerts in Jericho and Tel-Aviv were cancelled.

This is the second and last week of Coop's fall marathon, where we ask listeners to show their support financially to keep the station going. In fact, tax-deductible listener/member pledges and donations are the backbone of Coop's operating budget and this is what allows it to be an independent and progressive alternative source of news and analysis.  If you have received a renewal package in the mail, please send it in with your membership.  If you have never been a member before, please consider doing so now.  Limited income memberships are just $25/year, regular $50. People can donate on-line by going to the station website www.coopradio.org  and clicking on "Donate Now".  You can also call during our show on Oct. 23, at 604-684-8494 to submit your pledge.

Voice of Palestine broadcasts weekly on Vancouver Cooperative Radio (CFRO) 102.7 FM, Vancouver. The show broadcasts for one hour every Tuesday night from 8 to 9 pm (PDT). It first went on the air in September, 1987, and has hit the airwaves every week since then. People outside of Vancouver can listen to the show live on the internet http://www.coopradio.org/listen/  

All shows from the previous month will be posted on our website at the beginning of each month.
