Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Glen Scott, Kevin Neish, Janine Bandcroft Apr. 26, 2010

This week: You may remember the War in the Woods back in the 90’s, where hundreds of activists put their bodies on the line and were arrested to stop the destruction of that gem on the west side of Vancouver Island. All’s well that ends well though, and the Clayoquot, armed with its U.N. recognition is now saved for posterity; or is it?

Glen Scott is a Tofino-based writer and newly minted environmental activist working to increase awareness of the threat of mining on Catface Mountain, in the heart of the U.N.’s World Biosphere Reserve. Glen Scott in the first half.

And; Kevin Neish is a long-time activist who has borne witness to elections in South America, and served as a peace observer to protect threatened populations there. He’s also been to the West Bank to bear witness, with the International Solidarity Movement, of living conditions suffered under Israeli occupation in Palestine. He has been invited to participate in the upcoming convoy, and joins us in the second half.

And; Victoria Street Newz publisher and CFUV broadcaster, Janine Bandcroft will be here at the bottom of the hour to bring us up to speed with the goings on going on on Victoria’s streets at the bottom of the hour.
