New York Public Radio to air 1h broadcast on Libya case

Filed under: HIV,Justice,Libya — admin @ 6:23 pm

The Leonard Lopate Show on New York Public Radio (WNYC) will run a 1h broadcast on Thursday on the Tripoli Six and the current trial as part of its weekly “Underreported Series.” I’ll be the invited guest, and the live broadcast (1-2 pm EST) will cover the background of the case, where the trial stands now, and discuss its implications for the scientific community, for foreign health professionals, for human rights in Libya, etc, and the mounting protests against the trial.

It will also be broadcast on the Web here, or you can sign up to get the podcast here. This will be an excellent opportunity to get the facts of this poorly-publicised case out to a wider public, as the title of the series suggests.

Update (20th October): finally we had a half-hour segment. What was great was that David Stamp, vice president of Amnesty International USA, also joined the show. The MP3 file of the show is now available — to download click here.
