Radicals in Conversation in-haus is a podcast series collaboration between Pluto Press and Bookhaus, an independent bookshop in Bristol. RIC in-haus is recorded on location at Bookhaus. The bookshop’s ‘in-haus’ events programme features authors of some of the most exciting radical nonfiction being published today.

Episode 8 was recorded on 17th May, the same week as Palestinians commemorated the 75th anniversary of the Nakba. Hil Aked came to Bookhaus to talk about their new book Friends of Israel: The Backlash Against Palestine Solidarity. Hil Aked is a writer, investigative researcher and activist with a background in political sociology whose work has appeared in the Guardian, Independent, Sky News and Al Jazeera. They are a contributor to What is Islamophobia?: Racism, Social Movements and the State

Hil is in conversation with Narzanin Massoumi, senior lecturer in the department of Sociology, Philosophy and Anthropology at the University of Exeter, and co-editor of What is Islamophobia? They discuss the activities of Israel’s advocates in Britain, showing how they contribute to maintaining Israeli apartheid, as they seek to repress a rising tide of solidarity with Palestinians expressed through the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. They also consider the parallels with apartheid South Africa, and assess the recent protests in Israel around Judicial reform.
