-00:00 Dennis Bernstein: Israeli prime minister, Ariel Sharon, met with GW Bush today. Sharon, who himself is the subject of a Human Rights Watch call for a criminal investigation, demands "10 days" w/o a stone being thrown (by the Palestinians); calls Arafat the leader of a gang of terrorists. Phyllis Bennis of the Institute for Policy Studies: This talk is meant to pave the way for the Israeli purging of the PLO, to asserting ever more control. Does the Sharon demand for 'Ending Violence' include Israel ending its assassinations and other war crimes? No. Israeli public opinion has moved so far to the right that Sharon is a now a centrist. U.S. and Britain shamefully acquiesing to Israel for its 'restraint'. All not well for Sharon though, as the BBC documentary, Sharon, The Accused (read transcript) airs to applause; Lebanese survivors taking Sharon to court in Belgium; and today finds Human Rights Watch calling for an investigation into Sharon's role in the Sabra and Chatila camp massacres in 1982. The brutal occupation of Palestine is the root cause of all this violence.
-15:00 Noelle Hanrahan: An inspirational Palestinian mural with symbols of peace and hope, defaced for the 30th time in San Francisco. Attacks have intensified lately - the 10-yr-old mural is now being boarded over by the shopkeeper who fears arson. One image: an old man holding the city of Jerusalem. Shopkeeper: This mural is for Arabs *and* Jews, we all want just to live in peace. 21st Str Mural Project
-20:20 Interviews w one of muralists, Susan Greene, and activist Lillian Bachter. Palestinians over the last 53 years have been increasingly marginalized... the racist attacks on the mural intensify the hurt... images gathered from when Susan Greene and other artists visited Palestine... another image: a holocaust survivor who said: 'never again means never again for everybody'. She stands in opposition to the Israeli occupation every Friday w Women In Black. Another image: horses galloping across a rainbow, from a painting in a home demolished by Israelis. "We will offer them tea"...
-27:40Noelle recounts walking by the mural at 21st and Mission for the last ten years and being inspired again and again... Over 5000 Palestinian children have been injured in the last 6 months. The children's faces on the mural had been slashed... Another symbol in the mural: wild cactus groves, which now mark where the 475 Palestinian villages destroyed by Israeli Zionists in 1948 once stood...
Police protection for the mural non-existent. But just the attendance today of SF supervisors Tom Ammiano and Chris Daly at a press conference exposing the hate pathology against the mural is a good sign
-32:30 music break
-32:40 Celia Alario: The current United Nations Conference on AIDS. w Scott Long and Dr Artur Kalichman. This is the first time that gay and lesbian issues have been broached during a U.N. summit. The homophobic reaction of some UN members is frightening though. w Karyn Kaplan of the Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission. The Brazilian law allowing generic drug manufacture. Trade issues and *Intellectual Property Rights* threaten to outweigh the human right to life.. The pharmacuetical companies are ashamed of themselves, and they should be... We need to increase the awareness that it's a human right to have adequate healthcare...
