Summary
The Oslo Accords provided for the creation of a Palestinian interim self-government, the Palestinian National Authority (PNA). The Palestinian Authority would have responsibility for the administration of the territory under its control. The Accords also called for the withdrawal of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) from parts of the Gaza Strip and West Bank. This episode examines the efforts of field workers from two different but complementary human rights groups - one Palestinian, the other Israeli - in making this a reality. Hanan Ashrawi, a one-time Palestinian peace negotiator and head of a Palestinian human rights group is interviewed. Also featured are Allen Ginsberg's new poem "Peace in Bosnia-Herzegovina" read by the author himself, and a performance by the predominantly Australian aboriginal band, Yothu Yindi.
