The Electronic Intifada Weekly Podcast - 7 June 2012

This week on The Electronic Intifada podcast, time is running out for hunger striking footballer Mahmoud Sarsak, as rights groups demand urgent pressure on Israel, which has reneged on agreements made last month during the mass hunger strikes in Israeli jails. We’ll have updates from Ali Abunimah on this developing story.

Also, villagers in the South Hebron Hills are determined to remain on their land despite home demolitions by Israel; campaigners for Palestinian refugees’ right of return strategize in South Africa and learn from the post-apartheid struggle there. In a blow to Zionist censors, California’s attorney general backs a professor’s right to call for an Israel boycott on his state university website; and news from the global boycott, divestment and sanctions movement.
