In this episode we are joined by George Issac Siman, who is a Palestinian-Colombian activist. He explains how the streets are with Palestine; noting that the amount of solidarity with Palestine after the Gaza genocide has been remarkable. He also delves into the history of each country, explaining why in Chile there is a strong Palestine support, which has 500,000 people of Palestinian origin, while this is not fully the case in Colombia, Honduras, Argentina and El Salvador. Yousef Aljamal, Helena Cobban and Tony Groves explore the Palestine solidarity movement in Latin America with George by highlighting the role of imperialism, history, financial colonialism and the failure of the left to produce good governance there.
