Thursday, June 17 at 10AM US Central time: Rana Al-Arja
Al-Arja directs the Beit Jala, West Bank Holy Land Trust (HLT) Making the Impossible Possible Campaign (MIPC), “seek(ing) to refocus the tremendous power that lies with the Palestinian community (toward) a new (future) vision and strategy (through) peaceful coexistence based on equality and justice.”
Life in Occupied Palestine will be discussed, including Israel’s premeditated Freedom Flotilla massacre, complete with hit list and photos of activists to be assassinated.
Saturday, June 19 at noon US Central time: Stjepan Mestrovic and Fran Hunsaker
Mestrovic is Professor of Sociology at Texas A&M University and author of “The Good Soldier on Trial: A Sociological Study of Midconduct by the US Military Pertaining to Operation Iron Triangle, Iraq.”
Four low-ranking soldiers and lawyer Paul Bergrin were spuriously charged, not the commander, Colonel Michael Steele, and responsible top US officials.
Fran Hunsaker’s son William was one of the four, now serving an 18-year prison sentence his lawyers are appealing for clemency.
America’s “rules of engagement (ROE)” will be discussed and why low-ranking service men are convicted for obeying them.
Sunday, June 20 at noon US Central time: Ellen Brown
Brown is a civil litigation attorney, author, and frequent writer on financial issues. A new edition of her latest book, “Web of Debt,” is now out – a vitally important analysis of the private banking cartel Federal Reserve, how it usurped money creation power, and how we can take it back.
The Daily Bell “Compendium of Free-Market Thought” says “in modern economic thought (there are now) Keynsians, Austrians and Brownians.”
Brown’s latest writing will be discussed.
