Audio from a webinar sponsored by Workers World Party.

Description: Join us Friday, September 18, 2021 as part of the globally coordinated actions from September 18-26 defending Palestinian refugees’ right to return to their homes and lands throughout Palestine, reclaim their properties and ensure restitution and reparations.

These days of action will mark the commemoration of the Sabra and Shatila massacres, the September 1970 massacres in Jordan, the signing of the Oslo agreements and the continuing attacks, including the current farce touted as a “peace initiative”, against the rights and struggle of Palestinian refugees for return and liberation. All of these U.S. supported efforts promote militarism and delay the potential for true peace in the region–peace based on justice and human dignity.

A statement signed by more than 50 organizations raised international solidarity with the demand: No Normalization with Occupation and Colonization. This webinar will discuss the ongoing struggles of the Palestinian people and how we can build solidarity together for the liberation of Palestine, from the river to the sea.

Featuring (In order of first appearance):

Ted Kelly - An organizer with Workers World Party and active in Solidarity with the Palestinian Struggle

Charlotte Kates - International Coordinator of Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network and organizer with the US Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel and Al-Awda, the Palestine Right to Return Coalition

Charlotte Kates' audio was at times a bit subpar from a technical standpoint, but not bad overall.

There are 2 versions of this webinar on the R4A server. Both versions are the full webinar (01:18:18), lightly edited for pacing and content, mostly removal of "um, uh, you know" and false starts. I didn't add my own intro/outro to either version:

Version 1: A -24 LUFS Mp3 suitable for RADIO PLAY. You may want to add an intro/outro.

Version 2: A -19 LUFS Mp3 suitable for downloading onto a computer or mobile device for INDIVIDUAL USE. Identical content to Version 1, but a louder file encoded at a lower bitrate so it takes up less space.

You can also download these files plus (much larger) .wav files for highest quality at this link:!AgR3-KWytgTzgedtN78UfgfsmS1XGw?e=BoPNpf

Note to Radio Station Personnel - Please make note of this link:!AgR3-KWytgTzgZw_aOI2oDkhLhlrkw?e=fPuqpV
You can use it to download all or part of the R4A Essential Dissent archive (in at least .wav format) via my OneDrive account, and I plan to continue to post new episodes to that account even if R4A at some point becomes non-functional.
