The rectal-cranial inversion

Tonight on WPKN:

  • Report on "a major protest in Washington, D.C. on the 40th anniversary of Israel's illegal military occupation of the Palestinian West Bank, Gaza Strip, and East Jerusalem."
I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for this report. Is it going to be from Phyllis Bennis? Leslie Cagan? Mazin Qumsiyeh?

Remember, you're welcome to reply to whatever is said.
WPKN's open format allows for many views and opinions, but the views and opinions expressed are those of the person expressing them, not of WPKN itself. We welcome your responses. If you would like to reply, please call the General Manager weekdays at (203) 331-9756, or email wpkn@wpkn.org.
There's a report of the event at The Age of Hooper, including the inspiring and thought-provoking picture above. There are more photos and video here. This Ain't Hell has more. Atlas Shrugs has more video.

UPDATE: The interview wasn't with any of the A-listers I'd hoped for. It was with Omar Masri from the End The Occupation organization.

A major protest???? I was at the StandwithUS rally(I am wearing the goofy hat and have the Stop the Qassam Rockets sign in the photos). Did they mix up the little nutfest demo with the huge Capitol Pride Festival? I am glad bloggers posted our photos because despite being filmed by NBC, CNN and FOX, I never made the news because so few supporters of terror showed up- so no news story- a good thing,granted.. I didn't see any mention of them in the papers here today or on the news(although granted I don't watch every news show). Maybe I need to check Al-Jazeera?

Andrea, you don't need Al-Jazeera. Just listen to WPKN. ;-)

Seriously, I love the WPKN dearly, and I'm support everybody's right to be wrong, but if they go unanswered it's no longer a community radio station, just an echo chamber.

Hi, Andrea

I'm the photographer, and I've always wondered if the folks I photo find themselves in my pictures. You've answered my question. The hat might have been a little goofy - but as a human you're rock solid cool.

Thanks for getting my work out there, Dave.
