“If I needed something to confirm I am going in the right direction…” an interview with Yonatan Shapira
I inteviewed about Yonatan Shapira of Boycott from Within and Combatants for Peace after he was called in for an interrogation by the Israeli Security Services.
Part 1: Yonatan talks about his activism with the Boycott Divestment Sanctions movement, and how the Gaza War changed his mind.
Part 2: Backlash against Israelis and the interview by Israeli security services, and people who have been treated even worse. “I would have been still there.”
Part 3, why he takes the interrogation as a sign he is doing something right, and why he’s not overly worried about infiltration.
Part 4: How Yonatan has altered his behavior since being under surveillance.
Conclusion: the Gaza Ghetto action in Poland and what Americans can do.

Here is the video of Yonatan’s action in Poland calling for “No More Ghettoes.”
Here’s Marissa Brostoff’s critical but interesting article on a debate that Yonatan participated in.
and here is video from that event.
