Instead of focusing on political activism, I want to branch out and find out more about economic activism, something that tends to get sidelined in the Palestine solidarity community. So I’m interviewing Sam Bahour, a business development consultant living in Ramallah and founder of Americans for a Vibrant Palestinian economy. Sam frequently provides independent commentary on Palestine and serves as a policy adviser of Al-Shabaka, the Palestinian Policy Network. He blogs at www.epalestine.com
February's fundraising campaign for If Americans Knew was a success! Together we raised $497 which will go to putting up a new billboard. For the month of March I will be donating $7 from every item purchased at 220.127.116.11/~alizarin to Sam's non-profit organization, Americans for a Vibrant Palestinian Economy.
