Watch: Joseph Dana discusses Wikileaks, new media & activism

Watch 972’s Joseph Dana in an interview for GRITtv

“There’s a lot of Palestinian Gandhis,” says writer and filmmaker Joseph Dana.  But up until recently, it was nearly impossible for everyday people around the world to hear their stories. That’s changing with social media, he points out, and with this week’s release of more diplomatic documents from WikiLeaks, the world has more information than ever about what really happens both on the ground in Israel and Palestine and in diplomatic channels.

Joseph stopped in to the GRITtv studio before heading back to Israel, and spoke with Laura about WikiLeaks, about the nonviolent resistance on the ground in Palestine, continuing collective punishment, and developments in U.S. politics that will affect the situation in the Middle East.
