Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Yipeng Ge Stand-Alone February 2, 2024

Welcome to Gorilla Radio, recorded March 2nd, 2024

Listen. Hear.

The horror in Gaza intensifies by the moment. This past week, the World witnessed the infamous targeting of starving civilians gathered by some of the few aid trucks allowed in by Israel southwest of Gaza City.

The Flour Massacre, as this infamy is now being called, claimed at least 112 lives outright, with more than 750 people wounded to varying degrees. This latest outrage though is small beer when counted against the tens of thousands killed in Palestine, hundreds of thousands injured, and more than a million and a half people rendered homeless.

It is a purposefully made humanitarian catastrophe, an undeniable genocide. And yet, those in Canada calling for an end to the killing are being assailed by the government, attacked in the media, and in true McCarthyite fashion, blackballed from their professions.

Dr. Yipeng Ge is one of these. The family practice doctor and resident physician in Public Health and Preventive Medicine at the University of Ottawa’s faculty of medicine, Ge was suspended in November for social media posts criticizing Israel and calling for a ceasefire. The University subsequently backed down, giving indications of rescinding that suspension, but Ge refused to return saying, “I feel incredibly harmed by this process, and I don’t know how to continue within this institution because of what’s happened.

Ge too resigned his membership on the Canadian Medical Association board in protest of that institution’s silence on the targeting of hospitals, doctors, and the entire medical system there.

Since then, Dr. Ge has traveled to Gaza to see for himself, ostensibly to work at Nasser Hospital in Khan Yunis, but unable to do so due to “targeted attacks on healthcare workers.
