Dr. Hanan Ashrawi: ‘2-state solution is dead, Israel destroyed it... Palestine will not surrender!’ (E1014)

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Dr. Hanan Ashrawi, former member of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organisation. She discusses why the two-state solution is dead, Israel’s responsibility for destroying it, the international community’s inaction over Israel’s illegal occupations, annexations, and airstrikes, the 11 days of aerial bombardment of Gaza which killed 248, including 66 children, and Israel’s justifications that its strikes targeted Hamas, the severe economic and human damage in Gaza following the bombardment, US-UK-EU arms sales to Israel and replenishment of arms after the 11 days of Israeli bombardment, Joe Biden’s US blocking action at the UN to pressure Israel, and much more! Finally, we speak to Prof. Aviva Chomsky, author of ‘Central America’s Forgotten History: Revolution, Violence and the Roots of Migration’, and the daughter of Noam Chomsky. She discusses the US’ support for right-wing governments in Latin America which followed Washington imposed neoliberalism and the foreign investment model of economic extractivism, how Hugo Chavez’s Venezuela provided a different path for Latin American nations to avoid neoliberalism imposed by the US, IMF, and World Bank, the US demand that Latin American policies must be favourable for US corporations, which in turn hurts the working classes of Latin America, the US government’s efforts to destroy left-wing politics within trade unions in the United States, Latin America, and around the world, the US-backed overthrow of Manuel Zelaya in Honduras in 2009, why Biden’s foreign policy in Latin America is not likely to diverge from past presidents, and much more!
