A lawyer, activist and longtime Green, Lascaris speaks in this interview about breaking through the pervasive media silence on Israeli actions, how the Green resolution was more limited than the BDS movement, and why he thinks the day is coming when Netanyahu and his government will be viewed in Canada as we now view the apartheid government of South Africa.
