    Episode 232 - Poems for Refaat

    In tribute to Palestinian poet, activist, academic, and co-founder of We Are Not Numbers, Refaat Alareer, Roqayah and Kumars are joined by his colleague at the Electronic Intifada, Nora Barrows-Friedman, to discuss Israel's deliberate assassination of Refaat, and his legacy. 
    Nora discusses the impact of Refaat's targeted execution by Israel, and the impressions he left upon thousands of students who he helped mentor during his life. The crew also weighs the significance of the written word, its role in resisting occupation in Palestine, and Israel's historic fear of the Palestinian pen.

    This week, Roqayah and Kumars welcome back returning guests Rawan Masri and Fathi Nemer, cofounders of the outstanding resource hub and archive decolonizepalestine.com. Rawan is a writer and translator working at the Palestinian Museum in Birzeit, and Fathi is currently Palestine Policy Fellow at Al Shabaka, the only independent, transnational Palestinian thinktank.

The gang also break down what has changed since October 7th, from perceptions of the IDF’s military capacity to the broader regional war already underway.

Never throws the baby out with the bathwater

So refreshing to hear a podcast that is both critical and generous, and highlights the anti capitalist work of often dismissed or marginalized movements by actually talking to organizers. There are so many demoralizing anti woke podcasts out there, it gets old fast. If you actually want to learn something constructive about what left movements are doing, and do it with good humor, this is a podcast for you!
