GRITtv: Midnight on the Mavi Marmara: The People’s Record

GRITtv » Blog Archive » Midnight on the Mavi Marmara: The People’s Record:

"Less than four months ago, Israeli commandoes boarded the boats in the Freedom Flotilla headed for Gaza and killed nine peace activists. Investigations are underway into just what happened the night of May 31st, but just a few months after the attacks, a new anthology collects eyewitness testimony, analyses and thought pieces, and responses from artists and poets into a 'people's record' of what happened that night--and how it just might be a turning point for the conflict between Israel and Palestine.

Moustafa Bayoumi is the editor of Midnight on the Mavi Marmara, available now from OR Books, and Huwaida Arraf was on the flotilla that night. They join us to discuss what happened, what role the book can play, and how it was able to come about so quickly.
