Conscious Voices Columbus rally for Palestine


59:34 minutes (54.53 MB)

Audio from a recent Palestine solidarity rally in Columbus Ohio, which drew around 400 people. The rally went smoothly and without incident. It was not co-opted by hate or anti-Jewish sentiments, nor commandeered by Trotskyists, nor picketed by counterprotesters. Maybe if any of those things had happened, it might have garnered more attention in the local media, but the full audio is here, along with commentary, and a musical piece by Anoushka Shankar
