The Progressive Radio News Hour Guests for June 28, 30, and July 1, 2012
Thursday, June 28 at 10AM US Central time: Laila Yaghi
Laila is US political prisoner Ziyad Yaghi’s mother. We met in Chicago and discussed Ziyad firsthand.
Like many other persecuted US Muslims, he was wrongfully charged, convicted and imprisoned despite having committed no crimes.
Nonetheless, he’s serving 30 years in prison during the prime of his life. Laila does all she can to help him. She maintains the Free Zihad Yaghi
site. Visit it for regular updates.
Discussion will focus on this great injustice. It’s the wrong time to be Muslim in America. Many others suffer like Ziyad.
