Popoki in Palestine on Radio FM Cocolo 76.5

I was interviewed (in Japanese) after returning from Palestine in the beginning of January.
The program, 'Heart Lines' was aired on 9 January between 07:30 and 08:00 on FM Cocolo 76.5 in Kansai, for about 10-15 minutes. I spoke about how very warmly we were treated by the people of Palestine, their celebration of Christmas, and how very difficult life is under Israeli occupation. I cited two examples in particular: lack of water and the impact of the wall. For example, on two occasions when we were passing through the Jerusalem checkpoint on the way to Bethlehem, we saw people, on of them a young child, being transferred from one ambulance to another. This is because Palestinian ambulances can not go into Israel, and the patients much have permits in order to be treated. Of course, the transfer takes time and paperwork, which can be fatal for the patient... I think it is important to share our experiences, and the Popoki Peace Project will be hosting some events to do so in the next few months.
(I had a link here to a recording of the interview, but it doesn't seem to be functioning. Apologies!)
