Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Michelle Shephard, Mike Ferner, Janine Bandcroft Nov. 7, 2011

This week: Michelle Shephard is a Canadian investigative journalist, currently serving as the Toronto Star newspaper’s national security correspondent, and author of the acclaimed book, ‘Guantanamo’s Child: The Untold Story of Omar Khadr.’ Her latest book, ‘Decade of Fear: Reporting from Terrorism’s Grey Zone’ examines the beginnings of the Global War on Terror from the smouldering, ash-strewn streets of 9/11 New York City, to the furore currently roiling the streets of the Arab Spring.

Michelle Shephard in the first half.

Mike Ferner is Acting Director of Veterans for Peace and is their former national president. He’s a long-time peace activist who went to Iraq in the days leading to Operation Iraq Liberation with Voices in the Wilderness, and again to document the effects of the invasion on that country in 2004. He is author of the book, ‘Inside the Red Zone: A Veteran For Peace Reports from Iraq,’ and wrote ‘VFP Case for Impeachment and Prosecution.’

Mike Ferner and America’s increasingly restive Occupy Movement 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 news from Victoria’s People’s Assembly, (still camped at Centennial Square) and doings from further afield too.

But first, Michelle Shephard and a Decade of Fear.
