Interview with Associate Professor Omar Odahi

by Samaa Elibyari

CKUT's Syria Uprising Broadcast: Syria Struggle in Context

CKUT's Samaa Elibyari, host of Caravan, spoke with with Associate Professor of Economics at Hampshire College, Omar Odahi.

-------

CKUT in collaboration with the Collective for Syria in Montreal hosted a 6-hour focus programme on Syria, dedicated to voices, perspectives and music focused on Syria and in solidarity with popular uprising.

Over the past six months, the Syrian people have been taking to the streets to call for justice, freedom and democracy – a national uprising. In response, the Syrian government continues to unleash deadly violence and kill people in the streets. Over 2000 people have been killed, including many children. Citizen journalists uploading photos and writing reports from the front-lines have been targeted and killed by Syrian government snipers.

In an effort to mobilize public attention and solidarity with the current situation in Syria, CKUT radio presented special programming Thursday, September 1st on Lendemain de la Veille, Under the Olive Tree, Venus and Off the Hour.

-------

The Collective for Syria in Montreal is an initiative of Syrian-Canadians and their allies working in support of the popular, nonviolent uprising for freedom, justice and democracy in Syria. We are not aligned with any political party or ideology but support the legitimate demands of the Syrian people for dignity and freedom for all.

This interview originally aired Thursday, September 1st on CKUT's Off the Hour, 17h-18h.
