Checkpoint 303 'Time Passes - A Tribute to John Berger'
From Checkpoint 303, a remix/collage/soundscape of John Berger, who left us on 2nd January, reading Ghassan Kanafani's "Letter from Gaza".
John Berger was an outstanding intellectual, writer, poet, artist and humanist. He was a strong supporter of the Palestinian struggle for freedom, justice and self-determination. Ghassan Kanafani was a Palestinian writer and a leading member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (FPLP). Kanafani was assassinated by the Israeli Mossad in 1972.
