Water Wars in Palestine: Premier Radio Interview
On Tuesday morning next week, 27th October, at 8:00am I am being interviewed on Premier Radio about a major new report being published the same day by Amnesty International exposing Israel's theft of water from the Palestinian Occupied Territories. Entitled, 'Troubled Waters: Palestinians Denied Fair Access to Water' the 112 page report outlines Israel's consistent failure to comply with international law on the fundamental human right Palestinians have to water.
While the illegal Israeli settlements, built exclusively for 'white only' American and European Jewish immigrants, enjoy lush lawns and open air swimming pools, the wells are running dry in the surrounding Palestinian villages.
Tune into Premier Radio 8:00am or check out Amnesty's website at 0001 hours GMT Tuesday 27th October 2009.
