The Palestine Solidarity Sessions (UOT Edition - #5)

Interview with Grace Batchoun of CJPME (Part 2)

by Under The Olive Tree

The Palestine Solidarity Sessions (UOT Edition - #5)

Grace Batchoun is the VP Public Relations of CJPME (Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East). CJPME is a non-profit and secular organisation. One of its main missions is to enable Canadians of all backgrounds to promote and work for justice and peace in Palestine.

In this interview, Grace explains how CJPME was founded as a reaction to the 2002 Jenin massacre. She talks about the importance of taking actions to achieve change and what are the many ways you can contribute to CJPME’s work. This includes doing internships, becoming a project leader, and/or signing up to become a media responder to help keep mainstream media in check. CJPME also trains people to participate in the many delegations they send to Ottawa to meet parliament members.

WHAT IS 'THE PALESTINE SOLIDARITY SESSIONS'?

Throughout the month of August, CKUT brings you “The Palestine Solidarity Sessions”, an in-depth series focusing on the issue of Palestine, and what can be done. Each segment will feature voices of Palestinians and their supporters throughout the world calling for a just peace – voices that are all too often left out of the mainstream media debate.

This new series underlines the importance of the work we are doing as independent community journalists to engage in truth-telling.  Its main aim is to give our listeners tools to support the Palestinians in their struggle, to get involved in the Palestine-solidarity movement and to help create awareness about the Palestinian plight.

Tune in on CKUT, 90.3 FM in Montreal, or online at www.ckut.ca during the following shows:
The Morning Ater, Tuesdays 7am
Off the Hour, Wednesdays 5-6pm
Under the Olive Tree, Thursdays 11am
