Irvine -- On the next edition of KUCI's Subversity program, we continue our focus on the Gaza in the wake of the Israeli military raid last week on the peace flotilla that resulted in nine deaths of peace activists. We talk with a UCI graduate and activist, Russell Curry (left, speaking at UCI's March 4, 2010 rally), who visited the Gaza last year on a separate peace mission.
Russell Curry is a musician, writer and peace activist born and raised in Rancho Cucamonga, California. A recent graduate of the University of California, Irvine, Russell holds a BS in Biological Sciences with a minor in African American Studies.
UCI students protest Israeli peace flotilla massacre.
Last summer he and over 200 other activists from the U.S. had the opportunity to go to the Gaza Strip as part of a humanitarian aid convoy that brought direly needed medical supplies to the people of Gaza in response to the 22-day massacre Israel wrought on Gaza from December 2008-January 2009.
Curry was last interviewed on Subversity on 28 February 2010 to discuss student protests at UCI with other Black Student Union activists. His March 4 speech was also aired on Subversity on 8 March, 2010. See his photo at the rally. He also spoke out on behalf of the Irvine 11; we aired those speeches on 29 March 2010.
KUCI's Subversity show, hosted by Daniel C. Tsang, airs from 5-6 p.m. 7 June 2010 on KUCI, 88.9 FM in Orange County, California, and is simulcast via kuci.org.
