Latino Rebels Radio took the weekend off, but don’t worry—we still have a show, thanks to our dear friends at the Latino Media Collective. In this recent LMC episode, host Oscar Fernández talks with Cecilia Baeza, a lecturer at the Paris Institute of Political Studies, about the complicated and complex history of the estimated half-million people of Palestinian descent living throughout Latin America, making them the largest Palestinian diaspora population outside the Arab world.

The Latino Media Collective is a grassroots Latino public affairs program that airs on Pacifica station WPFW 89.3 FM, Fridays at 1pm EST from Washington DC.
