50 Years of Occupation: A Conversation with Palestine’s Ambassador in Canada

Fifty years ago, in June 1967, Israel began an occupation of Palestinian territories that has endured to this very day, and that shows no sign of ending in the foreseeable future. To commemorate this event, I travelled to Ottawa to speak to Nabil Maarouf, the head of the Palestinian delegation in Canada. This interview is in two parts. In Part 1, Mr. Maarouf and I discuss Justin Trudeau’s continuation of Stephen Harper’s extreme pro-Israel policies. In Part 2, Mr. Maarouf calls for sanctions, boycotts and criminal indictments against Israeli officials in order to bring an end to the system of apartheid that Israel has imposed on the Palestinian people.

Part 1 is here:


Part 2 is here:
