US Campaign on the radio: "Will Obama’s Push For a Freeze on Israeli Settlements Work?"

This morning, US Campaign National Media Coordinator David Hosey was interviewed by Sonali Kolhatkar of Uprising Radio on KPFK 90.7 FM. Kolhatkar and Hosey discussed the Israeli settlements, Obama's push for a settlement freeze, and the response of the Israeli government. They also talked about nonviolent resistance to the expansion of settlements, such as this attempt by Israeli and Palestinian members of Combatants for Peace to set up a mock "settlement outpost" on land onto which they'd been invited. There efforts were met with repression by the Israeli army, while settlers continue to be allowed to erect structures on Palestinian land.
