Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Rosa Addario, Kathy Kelly May 3, 2023

Welcome to Gorilla Radio, recorded May 3rd, 2023

A generation in to the communications revolution begun by the internet, governments around the World are busy devising ways to limit, throttle, or eradicate entirely the ability of the citizenry to freely share their opinions, or express political dissent. And, Canada is no exception.

Last week, Bill C-11 received ratification from the Senate, despite the government rejecting crucial amendment proposals put forward by that body.

Rosa Addario is a Canadian telecommunications technology researcher. She’s currently Communications Manager at OpenMedia, a quote, “community-driven organization [working] to keep the Internet open, affordable, and surveillance-free“.

And; the current conflict in Ukraine is proving to be the engine of a technological acceleration in both the methods and means of prosecuting war. Fortunately, those working for peace are too engaging new strategies and technologies to help bring the insanity of this, and the next, war to a halt.

Kathy Kelly is a long-time peace and justice activist, essayist, author, and recipient of numerous awards for her peace service, including multiple nominations for the Nobel Peace prize. These days she’s serving as Board President at World BEYOND War, where among other things, she’s busy co-coordinating the November 2023 Merchants of Death War Crimes Tribunal.

Kathy’s many articles appear at sites across the web, including WorldBEYONDWar.org, where I found her recent piece, ‘To End All Wars, Close All Bases‘.

But first, Rosa Addario and what Bill C-11 portends for Canadians’ freedom to read, write, and speak online.

One thought on “Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Rosa Addario, Kathy Kelly May 3, 2023”

  1. Maybe the point of Snowden’s treatment, and perhaps Assange as well, is not to punish but to silence dissent. Behind the iron curtain, people would talk freely once they knew that the listener could be trusted. Now we believe ‘they’ are always listening. In Canada, Govco is contracting with Advanced Symbolics to spy on 30 million phones and run the data through their proprietary AI program,”POLLY”. I would like to hear your platform cover this.
