ON THE AIRWAVES
Siaseh (Politics) Cafe is Zimam’s way of keeping its volunteers up-to-date with the hottest news topics in Palestine and allowing them to analyse and discuss what they mean.
In the past, this has involved 20-30 volunteers coming together in one place to discuss a certain topic (such as the Israeli election, or internal Palestinian political issues). But why should the discussion be limited to only those few who can attend?
In order to expand the conversation, Zimam in Gaza has decided to launch Politics Cafe Live, with the discussions now taking place over the radio and thus allowing a much wider audience.
This month’s discussion was about youth participation in Palestinian political life, moderated by Zimam activist Ahed who is vice president of the Youth Council.
