Imaginary Lines - The Paris Attacks

  • Whatsapp

The Islamic State terrorist attacks in Paris have sparked widespread condemnation, combined with major doses of hypocrisy and anti-Arab racism and Islamophobia. Today's special program looks at a hidden episode from French history, the deadly police repression of a 1961 demonstration in Paris in support of Algerian independence. Host Fox also interviews Lara Kiswani of the U.S.-based Arab Resource and Organizing Center on how the anti-Arab backlash has played out in the U.S. and the role of the media. Also, grassroot activism banned from the COP Climate Change Summit under the pretext of anti-terrorism security measures. teleSUR
