This is our last show of the season. We’ll be back in September. In this show we interview Adam Hanieh who is with Canadians Against Israeli Apartheid. Adam tells us about the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign around the world and the Chapters-Indigo boycott in Canada. We also introduce you to Aaron James, a young Manitoban of mixed heritage whose trip for medical aid at a Minnesota Clinic took him into the shadows of racism and paranoia of Homeland Security.
