Interview with Silwan solidarity activist Daniel Dukarevich

By Jesse Bacon

I spoke with Daniel Dukarevich on his way to Silwan to stay with Palestinian families facing eviction by settlers and police violence. As it turned out there was no attacks that night, but the activists expect more after Netanyahu returns from his visit with Obama. We will follow the story, in the meantime Daniel provides an excellent background to his work and the struggle for Silwan.

Daniel’s life in West Jerusalem, and the difference just 20 min. away in Silwan.

More about the demonstrations in East Jerusalem: organized by people, not organizations, Palestinian-led  and what’s in it for Israelis.

Why we need to act now, and more about recent events in Silwan.

The response to events in Silwan; relationship between settlers and police.; links to Gaza flotilla.

Conclusion: solidarity with Silwan and the importance of Americans.
