"The Truth About the Origins of Israel, the Palestinian Nation, the Prisoner Hunger Strike in California Prisons and the Deputy Gangs Running LA County Prisons"
Alan Goodman, Revolution newspaper, tells the solid truth about the origins of Israel and the history of the Palestinian nation as the basis for understanding the imperialist maneuvering around Palestine's application to the UN.

"Convicting the Innocent & Robo War in Gaza"
Brandon L. Garrett, author of "Convicting the Innocent: Where Criminal Prosecutions Go Wrong," and Professor at the University of Virginia Law School, talks about the cases of 250 people who were exonerated by DNA evidence after spending an average of 13 years in prison, including 17 who were on Death Row.

Seeing Red remembers the Black Panther Party, featuring the voices of Huey Newton, Bobby Seale, Bobby Rush, Fred Hampton and others. We follow with Israel’s right-wing coalition lashing out at Israeli Arabs in the Knesset with a trio of bills that would criminalize any commemoration of the Nakba, any refusal to recognize Israel as a “Jewish state”, and demand of Israeli Arabs to sign loyalty oaths or lose their citizenship. Finally, we remember the Winnipeg General Strike of 1919.
We try to break some mainstream media myths on the Israel's offensive in Gaza, by interviewing Nancy Murray, founder of the Gaza Mental Health Foundation, and Omar Badarr, Executive Director at the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee of Massachusetts.
