Role of Trauma and need for healing in Israel w two spiritually informed Jewish Israeli activists, and scholars, Meital Yaniv and Hadar Cohen

2/12/2024
Today on KPFA Radio’s Women’s Magazine Lisa Dettmer and Kate Raphael talk to two Israeli spiritually informed Jewish activists and scholars about what the role and effects are of trauma are in living and growing up in the apartheid state of Israel on both their own lives, and the lives of others in Israel/Palestine and how that trauma and the exploitation of that trauma has supported the militaristic and colonialist Zionist state of Israel. And we discuss how racism and white supremacy are intrinsically part of the colonialist Zionist project in Israel from its founding and how healing from trauma is one of the important steps to peace. We talk to Meital Yaniv who was born in Israel, and is learning how to be in a human form. they do things with words, with moving and still images, with threads, with bodies in front of bodies, with the Earth. they are a death laborer tending to a prayer for the liberation of the land of Palestine and the lands of our bodies. they keep Fires and submerge themselves in Ocean and Sea Water often. yaniv is learning to listen to the Waters, birdsongs, caretakers, and ancestors as they walk as a guest on the home and gathering place of the Cahuilla-ʔívil̃uwenetem Meytémak, Tongva-Kizh Nation, Luiseño-Payómkawichum, and Serrano-Yuhaaviatam/Maarenga’yam.yaniv is the author of bloodlines. They make offerings through true name collective. And we talk to Hadar Cohen who is an Arab Jewish scholar, mystic and artist. She is the founder of Malchut, a spiritual skill building school teaching Jewish mysticism and direct experience of God. She cultivated her own curriculum on the cosmology of creation and teaches it through her training God Fellowship. Malchut is also home for her Jewish Mystical School that includes a library of her classes and a community platform for connection.

Some of Us Are Brave: Interviews and Conversations With Sistas in Life and Struggle with Thandisizwe Chimurenga

1/22/2024
Women’s Magazine hosts Margo Okazawa-Rey and Jovelyn Richards talk with award-winning free lance journalist and author Thandisizwe Chimurenga about her collection of interviews in the book “Some of Us Are Brave: Interviews and Conversations With Sistas in Life and Struggle” and her second volume “Some Of Us Are Brave (Vol 2): Interviews and Conversations with Sistas in Life and Struggle” two books that counter the white supremacy and cis-heterosexual patriarchy (and by extension, misogyny) of our society that by definition belittles and ignores the voices of women of color in general and Black women in particular (misogynoir). Part of the corrective to white patriarchal supremacy is the centering and airing of Black women’s voices through Some of Us Are Brave: A Black Women’s Radio Program that aired on Pacifica-Los Angeles (KPFK 90.7 FM) from 2003 until 2011. The program covered a myriad of issues by amplifying the voices of a broad cross-section of Black women. Some of those voices have been preserved as transcripts and they primarily make up this work. Based on interviews with Asata Shakur, Barbara Ramsy, Carol Boyce-Davies, Euzhan Palcy, Michelle Alexander, Evelyn White, Paula Giddings, Pearl Cleage, Ramona Africa and Sisters on the Run. Thandisizwe Chimurenga is an award-winning, freelance journalist based in Los Angeles, CA. She has written for New America Media; the Los Angeles Watts Times, Sentinel and Wave newspapers; the Final Call; Black Agenda Report; Ebony; CounterPunch, Truth-Out and Daily Kos. She is a former radio reporter for the KPFK Evening News (Pacifica-Los Angeles) and Free Speech Radio News (FSRN). A creator or co-creator of independent, grassroots media (newspapers, cable tv, radio) for over 20 years, her activism has ranged from electoral organizing; anti-police terror work; freedom for political prisoners and prisoners of war; to organizing against violence against women.

Radical Feminist’s Organize for Deep Care of self Reproductive Health w author Angela Hume

1/8/2024
Many of us are familiar with the The Jane Collective or Jane, an underground group of radical feminist activists in Chicago who were part of the the Chicago Women’s Liberation Union that operated from 1969 to 1973 secretly providing safe and affordable abortions to women when abortion was illegal in most of the United States. But few people including myself knew that there were radical feminists right here in Oakland in the 1970’s thru the 1990’s who were also practicing this kind of self help reproductive care and who were teaching women how to help to do their self care and were providing low costs abortions and reproductive healthcare to women who couldn’t afford healthcare fueled by the belief that community based solutions rather than reliance on the state was what was necessary to protect women’s reproductive health. Today Kate Raphael talks to Angela Hume who just released a new book about this radical feminist self care movement in the Bay Area called Deep care The Radical Activists Who Provided Abortions, Defied the Law, and Fought to Keep Clinics Open and she talks about how important this movement is to understand for today when women once again have to create an underground movement to ensure women’s reproductive health care.
