Listen Download | podcast

John & Johayna from the Middle East Radio Project pay respect to Yasser Arafat with their analysis and excerpts from eulogies for Yasser Arafat around the world.

In the second segment, Susan interviews Elia Arce on her video ‘The Fifth Commandment’ where Elia brings the voices of the active military personnel returning from Iraq. Two marines who were at Falluja also join the interview to express their frustrating experience in Iraq where they went to ‘help the Iraqi people’ but were instructed to protect the oil fields for US’ interests instead. Susan also shares her work with the MotherSpeak, an organization working to bring mothers of all soldiers around the world against war.
