We talk to Tibetan journalist and scholar, Tseten Wangchuk, and Students for a Free Tibet organizer, Kalaya’an Mendoza, for an analysis of the ongoing situation.

Last August, Debbie Almontaser, the incoming principal of the Khalil Gibran International Academy – a new middle and high school that focuses on Arabic language and culture – was forced to step down after a media-generated furor over her explanation of the history of the word “intifada.” She then brought a lawsuit against the City, charging that her constitutional rights were violated. Tonight, we’ll get an update from Mona Eldahry, the founder of AWAAM, and Ms. Almontaser’s attorney on her case and the organizing work being done in support.
