While the latest upsurge in violence at the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem was sparked by an armed attack by Palestinians, the level of unrest points to deeper issues.
Asia Pacific Currents interviewed Reem Yunis, Palestinian and socialist activist in Melbourne Australia, on how the recent events are part of the ongoing effects of the Israeli occupation of Palestine and the struggle for liberation by Palestinians.
Only via the ending of Israeli occupation will the status of Jerusalem ever be resolved and for human rights to be respected.
Asia Pacific Currents provides updates of labour struggles and campaigns from the Asia Pacific region. It is produced by Australia Asia Worker Links, in the studio of 3CR Radio in Melbourne, Australia
