    Resistance in Residence Artist: Leroy Moore

    The mission of law & disorder is to expose, agitate and build a new world where all of us can thrive. But how do we get there? How do we build a world many of us have only seen in our dreams? That’s where we believe the artists come in. So, each week we feature an artist, holding down a weekly residency with us, helping us to imagine a different, more liberated world.
    This week’s Resistance in Residence Artist is Bay Area writer, musician, activist, author and founder of Krip Hop Nation, Leroy Moore.

    Jewish Biden Appointee Lily Greenberg Call Resigns in Protest of US Support of Israel

    Jewish Biden Appointee Lily Greenberg Call Resigns in Protest of US Support of Israel

    Today is the 230th day of Israel’s ongoing genocide in Gaza. Here on KPFA, we’ve been covering that violence itself as well as the US’s apparent unending blank check for Israel’s war machine that comes across in weapons transfers, cash, and political support. But even within the Biden Administration, distress in our country’s support for the genocide is growing. For the first time, last week, a Jewish person appointed by US President Joe Biden resigned from the administration in protest of the President’s support for Israel’s aggression in Gaza. Lily Greenberg Call is that former Biden appointee, and she joins us this morning to discuss her resignation as well as the reckoning she’s had to do as a Jewish person, with the violence of zionism.

    Palestine Post w/ Linda Sarsour, Sahar Francis & Liz Arias

    As we do most Mondays, we spend today’s show on the ongoing genocide that Israel is waging against Palestinians. Today we’re in conversation with Linda Sarsour, a Brooklyn-born Palestinian Muslim American activist, author, and community organizer. She is the author of her memoir We Are Not Here to Be Bystanders. We’re also joined by Sahar Francis, is the General Director of Ramallah-based Addameer Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association, a Palestinian organization providing legal and advocacy support to Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli and Palestinian prisons. She is also an attorney by training.
    At the end of the hour we’re also joined by Liz Arias, a student in her senior year at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, where the student encampment protest negotiated a successful divestment commitment from the school’s administration last week.
