On this edition of Parallax Views, journalist and documentarian Abby Martin joins us to discuss her work exposing the Empire, from her hit shows like the Empire Files and Breaking the Set to her recent appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience and her eye-opening documentary Gaza Fights for Freedom. Abby and I also manage to discuss her big victory in court related to the BDS (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions) Movement as well as her artistic/creative endeavors outside of her work on projects like The Empire Files, her upcoming documentary Earth's Greatest Enemy on military pollution, and the Media Roots Radio podcast she co-hosts with long-time Parallax Views friend Robbie Martin. At the end of the conversation we manage to tribute the late, great Michael Brooks and in-between we talk about everything from the infamous "Woke CIA" recruitment video to the plight of Palestinians in Sheikh Jarrah and the seeming public opinion sea-change occurring on matters related to Israel/Palestine. This is a free-wheeling conversation that you won't want to miss!
