Senate to hold second hearing on Capitol riot; Rashid Khalidi’s The Hundred Years’ War on Palestine; plus, how Oakland negotiations for MACRO are going

On this show:

0:08 – The Senate Rules Committee on March 3 will hold a second hearing on the January 6, 2021 Capitol riot. Adele Stan of Right Wing Watch joins us to preview the testimony and talk about what we still don’t know.

0:34 – We air excerpts of Rashid Khalidi talking with Nora Barrows-Friedman about his latest book, The Hundred Years’ War on Palestine, available for a contribution of $100 or $10 per month. The book is Khalidi’s most personal yet, and draws on a wealth of untapped archival materials and information from generations of family members interpreting the conflict.

1:08 – Oakland is in the midst of negotiations over MACRO, a program to create an independent alternative to calling and involving law enforcement. We talk with Oakland councilmember and vice mayor Rebecca Kaplan.

1:34 – Richmond is considering a proposal to create a safe RV parking site for RV-dwellers — but public outcry has stymied and delayed the project so far. We talk with Daniel Barth of Safe Organized Spaces Richmond (SOS Richmond) about ongoing advocacy for a safe place to park.
