Trying To Fill The Hole Our Father Has Left
05 Dec 2009
As we move into the cold months, many of you in the UK will be looking forward to Christmas. In the Palestinian village of Bi'lin, last weekend marked the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha, a time to see family and friends and for people to eat together. But for many Palestinians, the Eid was not so festive. Rajaa Abu Rahmah, aged 19, only has one wish this festive season, to see her father freed from prison. On 10 July 2009, Adeeb Abu Rahmah, a leading activist and organiser from the occupied West Bank village of Bi'lin, was arrested during the weekly demonstration at the Wall. A man committed to non-violent direct action, Adeeb was charged with incitement to violence, a blanket charge often used to indict leading members of Palestinian communities resisting against the confiscation of their land. A judge initially ruled that Adeeb should be released with restrictive conditions, forbidding him from attending demonstrations, but an appeal filed by the military prosecution was upheld, meaning that Adeeb would be held until the end of legal proceedings. Trials for Palestinians in Israeli military courts often last for over a year, leaving Adeebs family fatherless for the holidays.

Prof. Noam Chomsky Speaking on the Crisis in Honduras, Tuesday, Dec. 15
04 Dec 2009
MIT - Lecture Hall 26-100 - 6:30 PM

On November 29th, elections were carried out amidst defacto military rule in Honduras.
