Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Jonathan Latham, Robert Massoud October 29, 2022

Welcome to Gorilla Radio, recorded October 29th, 2022.

While the source of the novel Sars-CoV-2, or Covid-19 virus is still a question of spirited debate – where that debate is allowed to happen – there is another, eerily similar case of a novel virus whose correctly determined proximal origins would shed an entirely new light on a deadly outbreak. And, more horrifying perhaps than the shared plot line of these two events separated by five years is the recurring cast of characters behind the scenes of both.

Dr. Jonathan Latham holds a PhD in Virology and is co-founder and Executive Director of the Bioscience Resource Project. He is too Editor of the Independent Science News where his and independent journalist, Sam Husseini‘s recent article, ‘Did West Africa‚Äôs Ebola Outbreak of 2014 Have a Lab Origin?‘ appears.

And; it’s harvest season in the northern hemisphere. From the pumpkin fields of the Saanich Peninsula to the sun-dappled slopes of the Mediterranean basin the ritual as old as homo-agriculturo is fully underway.

In Palestine that means bringing in the olives, but all is not well where farmers and families brought together in communal effort are under attack in what my second guest calls the ‘Undeclared Olive Harvest War.’

Robert Massoud is the founder of Zatoun, an organization importing fair trade Olive Oil and other Palestinian goods from the West Bank, and working to provide a more accurate representation of life in Palestine to Canadians.

But first, Jonathan Latham and getting to the root of the West African Ebola outbreak narrative.
