In "When Zionism Rubs Up Against Reality," Stanley Cohen, attorney and human rights advocate, recently wrote, "With conscience, and vision as an outsider looking in, today, it is simply impossible not to feel an overwhelming sense of sheer revulsion when, if one is a caring being, an honest scan comes across Israel."

We'll talk with Stanley Cohen about his condemnation of Israel's crimes against humanity. As an attorney, Stanley has represented hackers, Occupy activists, the homeless, anti-war protesters, Muslim clerics, American Indian activists, and Anonymous in the PayPal 14 case.

From the Q&A of this important film, we'll hear Bob Avakian, Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, in a response to the question, "We have this multi-national corporate news media that's fractured into a thousand pieces and even so, Refuse Fascism can barely get on air. What sort of strategies do you think we can come up with to get through this?"
