After a devastating Israeli assault on the Gaza Strip from Dec. 27, 2008 - Jan. 20, 2009 which resulted in over 1400 Palestinians killed by Israelis and 5 Israelis killed by Palestinians, the population of Gaza has been unable to rebuild the 20,000 destroyed homes and buildings due to an ongoing Israeli-imposed siege.  A year after the attack, we look at what role the US has played in the ongoing assault on Gaza, the solidarity marches which will be arriving at the Gaza border as we speak, and examine the history of the refugee population of the Gaza Strip.  Tune in from 8 am to 8 pm on Wednesday, December 30th, for our all day special on Gaza.

Jenka Soderberg interviews Dhoruba bin Wahad, who is speaking from a hotel in Jordan after being detained and then denied entry into Palestine by Israeli authorities.  bin Wahad is a former political prisoner in the US who was charged in 1971 with the murder of two police officers, but was vindicated nineteen years later when a judge ruled that the FBI had fabricated evidence in order to frame bin Wahad of a crime he didn't commit.

As an African-American, on his way to a conference on political prisoners convened by the Palestinian Authority in the city of Jericho, bin Wahad feels that he was racially profiled, along with his travelling companion Naji Mujahid - the only two African Americans on a busload of white tourists.

Trudell (Santee Sioux) was a spokesperson for the Indian of All Tribes occupation of Alcatraz Island from 1969 to 1971. He then worked with the American Indian Movement (AIM), serving as Chairman of AIM from 1973 to 1979. In February of 1979, a fire of unknown origin killed Trudell’s wife, three children and mother-in-law.

Theresa Mitchell of Presswatch and Per Fagereng of Fight the Empire co-host a special program with Mickey Huff and Peter Phillips of Project Censored to talk about the release of Censored 2012, which Celebrates 35 Years of Project Censored.

In the last 35 years, the so-called mainstream media have been co-opted into a propaganda machine for the transnational corporate power structure, which serves a US/NATO Military Industrial Media Empire instead of We the People.

Project Censored resists the goals of global empire at the expense of human rights, we resist top down managed news in favor of a truly free press, and we resist censorship in all its guises.
