Tune in to radio613’s latest edition of our series on Jewish Racism & Jewish Anti-Racism. The show features information and analysis about the contemporary oppression of African asylum-seekers in Israel. We interview Lia Tarachansky, independent journalist with The Real News Network and hear from Natalina Kirba, a Sudanese asylum-seeker living in Israel since 2006. The show wraps up with our analysis of the Save Darfur campaign, critique of left-of center American Jewish responses to the situation of asylum-seekers in Israel, and comparisons between Israel and Canada’s current anti-immigrant & anti-refugee regimes.
