The Illinois legislature passed an anti-boycott bill. We discuss the impact of thelaw with Dima Khalidi, director of Palestine Solidarity Legal Support in Chicago. Her group opposed the bill and Illinois State Senator Ira Silverstein, a co-sponsor of the bill. Then we’ll talk with Paul Koudounaris about his book Memento Mori: The Dead Among Us. It explores over 250 sites around the world where dead bodies play a role in the world of the living. We’ll also talk with Global Activist, Dana Degrazia. (Photo courtesy of Paul Koudounaris )
