Gabrielle Berlinger Reports on the Latest Housing Protests in Israel
While, after inexcusable delay, the U.S. media finally start covering the Wall Street protests here in the United States, my colleague and IU doctoral researcher Gabrielle Berlinger continues to be one of the few people positioned to report in English on the continuing housing protests in Israel. As the protests connect directly with the community in which she is living and working and because they relate closely to her research, her reporting is rich in ways that journalistic accounts never could be. Her latest account, of a protest outside the home of the Minister of Housing in Jerusalem, is here.
Gabi is doing a great job. we are lucky to have her providing on-the-ground information on this powerful movement. i wonder if any newspaper reporters are following her reports. they should be!
