Rabble Rant: Lebanon Palestine and Resisting Colonialism

Blueprints of Disruption

08-01-2024 • 1 hr 1 min

Topic 1: Lebanon and Israel

Just as the siege on Gaza didn't start on October 7th, Israel's attacks on Lebanon didn't start with the recent assassination of a Hamas leader in Beirut.

Special guest, Lebanese educator and activist Moe Ramadan joins Host Jessa McLean to give a debrief on the history of Israeli occupation and aggression in Lebanon and an update on the current situation.

The similarities between Lebanon and Palestine are impossible to miss - and the patterns of global responses are also disappointingly the same. Displacement, unlivable conditions, collective retribution and of course, colonialism and liberation.

Topic 2: Refugees and Displacement

As the topic of internal displacement comes up, so does the issue of refugees and the push to further displace Palestinians across the globe. One can't argue with the need to evacuate people from a war zone - but, is the global community actually more interested in aiding in the permanent displacement of Palestinians from Gaza, forever?

What is Canada's role in all of this? As usual, its not good and its not new.
