VOP 2015-07-01: The Native and the Refugee

This week Voice of Palestine presents a live, uncut recording of the presentations at the westcoast premiere of videos from Matt Peterson and Malek Rasamny’s documentary project The Native and the Refugee, connecting struggles taking place on Native reservations in the United States and those in Palestinian refugee camps in the Arab world. The event was held in Vancouver on June 30, and the two guests were introduced by progressive artist Jayce Salloum; both Jayce and the two visitors detailed the shared and bitter histories of colonialism and occupation inflicted by Israeli and North American governments, especially relevant as we remember the horrific genocide of indigenous people on this Canada Day holiday.
