Ape Goes to Victoria Gaza Solidarity March and Rally Day 167 March 23, 2024

Joined a couple hundred Victorians braving the weather to once again express their dismay at the Government of Canada’s beyond weak response to Israel’s horror in Gaza and the West Bank, Palestine.

Welcome to Gorilla Radio, recorded March 20th, 2024

Listen. Hear.

As dates of infamy go, March 20th is right up there. It was on this very day, twenty-one years ago, George W. Bush marched American troops into Iraq preceding the heinous “shock and awe” bombing of Baghdad. Now, even the lying media majors whose mendacity then allowed the catastrophe inflicted by Bush’s “coalition of the willing” happen, concede the attack and all that followed was based on lies – “a pack of lies” as George Galloway would thunder at US senators two years later.

So why did Bush do it, if not to neutralize Saddam Hussein’s non-existent Weapons of Mass Destruction? Perhaps the intense lobbying by Israel for the war, and ascendancy of the Neo-Con claque within the Bush White House can explain it? Two things certain, however are; those manufacturing the lies in Washington profited their infamy handsomely, and today are free to enjoy the fruits of their complicity in the murder of unknown numbers of Iraqis. And, that impunity not only made the ongoing Gaza genocide possible, but guarantees a future of unending atrocity.

Ken Stone is an activist and author working for peace with the Syria Support Movement International and Hamilton Coalition to Stop the War. His book, ‘Defiant Syria: Dispatches from the Second International Tour of Peace to Syria’ is a compilation of his dispatches from his 2016 visit. Ken and the Hamilton Coalition have been in the fore of Canadian resistance to militarism for years, and that activity has increased since October of last year.

Ken Stone and Gaza foremost in the first half.

And; none were surprised Vladimir Putin won an overwhelming mandate to continue in the office of the President in Russia over the weekend, but to hear the Anglo-American media reports, that entirely predictable event is merely a “claim” being made by the Kremlin. Just how are we in the West to go on in the World with our faculties clouded with such nonsense? And, every day it gets worse with ever more draconian message-management measures being devised to reach right into social media.

John Helmer is an antidote to the poisoned press, on Russia especially. John’s a journalist and author who’s spent decades living in and reporting from there, and persists as the principle behind the web news site, Dances with Bears. John has too been a professor of political science, sociology, and journalism, and has served as advisor to governments at the highest levels.
Among his many book titles are: ‘Skripal in Prison,’ ‘The Man Who Knows Too Much About Russia,’ ‘The Lie That Shot Down MH-17’, ‘SOVCOMPLOT: How Pirates Tried to Capture the Treasure of the Russian Seas, and Were Caught Out’, and his lately released autobiography, ‘Dunce Upon a Time: A Life of Mistakes’. His latest article at Dances with Bears, ‘WHEN IT COMES TO FIGHTING RUSSIAN DIAMONDS, THE JEWISH DIAMOND TRADE AND DE BEERS ARE A BUSTED FLUSH’ looks at the cascading negative effects for Israel of its barbarous Gaza campaign.

Ape Goes to Victoria Gaza Solidarity March and Rally Day 160 March 16, 2024

 

Joined between 200-300 Victorians to again demand, for the 23rd week in a row, the Canadian government fulfill its obligations to international law and human decency.

Ape Goes to Victoria Gaza Solidarity March and Rally Day 153 March 9, 2024

Joined about 500 Victorians in the cool and rain to again demonstrate our collective dismay and disgust at the current situation in Gaza, and the fecklessness and naked criminality with which the Canadian government has responded to it.

Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Andy Worthington, Yipeng Ge March 6, 2024

Welcome to Gorilla Radio, recorded March 2nd and 6th, 2024

Last month, Julian Assange’s final appeal to avert extradition to the United States was heard over two days in a British court. Now Assange and the millions of his supporters around the globe wait for that court’s decision. To call his detention, approaching five years in maximum security under the harshest conditions allowed by English law, a miscarriage of justice hardly addresses the produndity of the perversion of the principles of Magna Carta, that foundational precept of Western jurisprudence.

Andy Worthington is an English journalist, activist, author, photo-historian, filmmaker, musician, song-writer and principle of The Four Fathers band. He and the Fathers have released a new tribute song to the Belmarsh Prison’s most famous inmate, ‘Warriors’. Andy’s is too co-founder of the Close Guantánamo campaign, still trying to get released men captives of George W. Bush’s “generational war”.

Gorilla Radio is a reader-supported publication. To receive new posts and support my work, consider becoming a free or paid subscriber.

His book titles include: ‘The Guantánamo Files: The Stories of the 774 Detainees in America’s Illegal Prison’, ‘Stonehenge: Celebration and Subversion’, and ‘The Battle of the Beanfield’. Andy’s articles appear at his website, AndyWorthington.co.uk, where he invites participants to enjoin Close Guantanamo’s efforts.

Andy Worthington in the first half.

And; the horrors in Gaza intensify 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. 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 in this purposefully made humanitarian catastrophe, and 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. A 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, Dr. Ge traveled to Gaza to see for himself and ostensibly work at Nasser Hospital in Khan Yunis, but was unable to do so due to “targeted attacks on healthcare workers” in that place.

But first, Andy Worthington and fighting for justice for truth warrior, Julian Assange.

Ape Goes to Victoria Gaza Solidarity March and Rally Day 127 February 11, 2024

Joined about 350 Victorians expressing their outrage for the continuing slaughter of Palestinians in Gaza.

Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, John Cavanagh and Pedro Cabezas, David Rovics January 17, 2024

Welcome to Gorilla Radio, recorded Jan. 17th, 2024

January 11th marks the first anniversary of the arrest of the “Santa Marta 5” in El Salvador. Known as “The Water Defenders”, the five were instrumental in bringing about a 2017 national ban on mining in the country. But now political winds have shifted, with current office-holders eager to reverse the ban. Part of that determination apparently includes using the courts to neutralize inconvenient impediments.

Over the past week transnational environmental and social justice organizations mobilized in defense of the five men, manifesting demonstrations in Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, and Washington, DC. Press conferences were called, letter campaigns launched, and “State of Deception“, an exhaustive report on the findings of an international delegation investigating the charges was released.

Pedro Cabezas took part in the virtual press conference, along with John Cavanagh and others. Pedro is coordinator of the Central American Alliance on Mining, ACAFREMIN; while John, as well as being a past UN economist, is currently a Senior Advisor at the DC-based Institute of Policy Studies. Both are co-authors of The Water Defenders report, ‘State of Deception: A fact-finding report on El Salvador’s detained water defenders, the potential return of environmentally destructive mining, and the state of human rights under the Bukele administration’.

John Cavanagh and Pedro Cabezas in the first half.

And; for the last 100 and more days and nights Israel has visited Hell upon the heads of the people of Gaza. That what it is doing is an outrage against humanity is beyond question, and indefensible; and yet the bombing continues. Millions around the World have taken to the streets and public places in their towns and cities – especially those in Western capitals – in efforts to shake support by their respective governments of Israel – if only by omission of censure – for the killing. So far to no avail.

David Rovics is a confessed “Singer/songwriter, writer, anarchist, dad, and lover of life,” (not necessarily in that order). He’s been expressing his outrage in song, as he has done on so many issues for so long. The result is a collection of twenty songs, compiled in the album, ‘Notes from a Holocaust’. He says, “I wrote them to bear witness to the genocide of the Palestinian people that continues by the hour as I publish this album.”

David Rovics and killing war with music in the second half.

But first, John Cavanagh and Pedro Cabezas defending The Santa Marta 5, El Salvador’s Water Defenders.

Welcome to Gorilla Radio, recorded January 10th, 2024

Listen. Hear.

Approaching 100 days of Israel’s bombing of civilians in Gaza, (and its kidnap and murder campaign in the West Bank) Britain’s newest Foreign Minister, David Cameron says he’s worried Israel may have committed some breaches of international law. Responding to questions from the Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee, the former UK PM admitted to “deep concern” over Israel’s methods, but said he was reassured by his government’s legal advisors Israel has exhibited a “…commitment, the capability and the compliance” to international law in Gaza. Though the issue of Israel’s assassination of foreign nationals in neighbouring countries wasn’t broached, that too presumably fails to meet Britain’s threshold for international criminality.

Ken Stone is an activist and author working for peace with the Syria Support Movement International and Hamilton Coalition to Stop the War. His book, ‘Defiant Syria: Dispatches from the Second International Tour of Peace to Syria’ is a compilation of his dispatches from his 2016 visit.

Ken Stone in the first half.

And; while Israel’s three months-long martial rampage in Gaza has knocked many other stories of desperation from the news cycle to be fair, Ethiopia’s civil war and the dismal disappointment of the Pretoria agreement for Tigrayans was long-forgotten long before October 7th.
Selamawit Gebremeskel is an Ethiopian emigre who has lived in Canada for nearly thirty years. Now a health care professional in Victoria, she has relatives in Tigray who were caught up in the war the Abiy government waged against its civilians, and are now suffering the peace accord Addis Ababa fails to honour.

Selam and the GVTRRS community invite Victorians to join them February 3rd at the Oddfellows Lodge, down town Victoria, for a special evening titled “Feast to Fight Famine“, a dinner fundraiser focused on delivering much-needed support to Tigrayan families suffering from the post-war famine.

Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Jeremy Kuzmarov, Terry Wolfwood January 3, 2024

Welcome to Gorilla Radio, recorded January 3rd, 2024

Listen. Hear.

The most famous journalist in the World is scheduled to appear in Britain’s High Court next month for the final act in his appeal against extradiction to the United States. Already imprisoned on spurious grounds since April 11th, 2019 none but the most desperately optimistic expect justice for Julian Assange.

The Assange tragedy proves, in conjunction with the shooting wars currently underway, and those planned for the future, there is too a war being waged on the People’s right to know just why these wars are being waged.

Myriad methods have been employed to create an environment of fear, ensure ignorance, and promote confusion in the public mind about issues crucial to the survival of functional democracy. And where guile, gatekeeping, lies, and propaganda fail, outright murder prevails – as Israel has demonstrated one hundred and twenty times in Gaza between October 7th and New Year’s Eve.

Assange’s colleague, WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Kristinn Hraffnson, summarises saying, “There is no press without the protection to operate freely.” But then, even a free press can’t operate long for free.
Jeremy Kuzmarov is a journalist and author of five books on American foreign policy. Those titles include, ‘Obama’s Unending Wars’, ‘The Russians Are Coming, Again’, written with John Marciano, and his latest, ‘Warmonger: How Clinton’s Malign Foreign Policy Launched the US Trajectory from Bush II to Biden’.

Jeremy also serves as Managing Editor at CovertActionMagazine.com, where you can discover the stories meant to stay under wraps – for now.

And; what can be done to stop the horror of Israel’s genocide in Gaza and the West Bank? Director and co-founder of the Barnard-Boecker Centre Foundation, Terry Wolfwood says, “As the death toll and destruction continue in Gaza we can help by ending Canada’s complicity.”

Terry has served as local coordinator for the Women in Black for many years, and has traveled numerous times to the refugee camps in Palestine and Western Sahara to bear witness and bring the message of the people she meets there back to Canada. Her articles have appeared at Briarpatch, Peace News, Third World Resurgence among other places, and at the Foundation’s site, BBCF.ca.

Ape Goes to Victoria Gaza Solidarity Rally and March December 30, 2023

 

Went down to the Legislature to brave the rain with about 250-300 Victorians expressing their collective outrage at Canada’s inaction in the face of Israel’s murderous genocide.

Gorilla Radio 2023 Year-Ender December 29, 2023

Welcome to Gorilla Radio’s 2023 Year-Ender show.

Listen. Hear.

Gaza is the only story. Whatever else happened, the last quarter of 2023 defines the entire year. It serves too as the logical terminus of Israel’s murderous progress in Gaza and Palestine as a whole for the entirety of its 75 years. How could that sordid history lead anywhere but here; the unapologetic genocide, supported by a Western consensus, of another indigenous population in the way of colonial development.

Gorilla Radio has covered just some of the litany of outrages against humanity and international law in Gaza for many years: 2002, 2006, 2008, 2012, 2014, 2018, 2023 are years where extraordinary escalation of crimes committed occurred, but all are merely the peaks and valleys in an overarching tableau of depravity.

In 2002 I talked to Victoria-based human rights activist, Kevin Neish from Bethlehem. I introduced the segment then saying,
The situation in Palestine is getting worse by the hour. The weekend saw protest in cities throughout the world, and those protests have continued. Today, a group of internationalist, people who have travelled to Palestine to act as human shields and witnesses to Israeli atrocities, were fired upon by the Israeli Defense Forces. Kevin Neish, a Victoria man known to many here for his work with human rights and social justice is one of those internationalists and he was in the march in Beit Jalla when the bullets started to fly.”

Here’s Kevin from Palestine in April, 2002.

2:00 Kevin Neish from Palestine April, 2002. (8:30)

In earlier years of this show, Jon Elmer was a vital source of information on Gaza. Jon was then a Canadian freelance photographer and photo-journalist who reported from many of the World’s most troubled regions. He’d lived in and reported from Occupied Palestine during the first decade of the new century, his dispatches being carried by Inter Press News Service, Al Jazeera English, Le Monde Diplomatique, and The Progressive among others.

Here’s a piece of a segment I recorded with Jon from Palestine in May of 2007. The issues will sound familiar.

10:30 Jon Elmer from Palestine May, 2007. (9:28)

In 2010, International Solidarity Movement member, Kevin Neish sat in again with Gorilla Radio to talk about his impending return to Gaza with the Viva Palestina’s May sailing of a fleet of ships to Gaza, Palestine to challenge the Israeli blockade of the troubled Gaza Strip. Kevin was to be aboard the Turkish small cruise ship, Mavi Marmara which Israeli commandos would later attack, killing ten of the unarmed activists.

20:00 Kevin Neish May 2010 (13:00)

The horrors of Israel’s full-scale military attacks against the civilian population of Gaza – its so-named “operations” Cast Lead over Christmas in 2008, Pillar of Defense in 2012, and 2014’s Protective Edge killed thousands and destroyed “tens of thousands of homes, schools and office buildings” as noted by Al Jazeera. But worse was to come with the slaughter of the Great March of Return in 2018, where unarmed civilians in their hundreds were killed by Israeli snipers, with thousands more maimed.
Outrage manifested on the streets in cities and towns around the World. In April I went down to the demonstrations in Victoria. Here’s some of the streeters I did then with locals: Larry Hannant, Terry Wolfwood.

36:10 Streeters w/ Larry Hannant, Terry Wolfwood CAIA March of Return Demo April 2018 (8:20)

All that we’ve seen in these last twenty-two years has led to the Genocide Israel is committing at this moment. The failure of the United Nations and the international community of nations to stop the violence of the United States and its allies has allowed this happen. The next manifestion of that impunity, it can be safely assumed, will be more terrible still…
Canadian doctor, Tarek Loubani was in Gaza in 2018, tending to the wounded at the Great March of Return when he was shot through both legs.

In 2023, Canadian doctors are under attack again for their support of Palestinian rights and lives, this time here at home by the press, their employers, and the government; even as hospitals and clinics are bombed, and doctors and medics are assassinated at work and in their homes in Gaza.

I spoke to Tarek last in December about the ongoing genocide. Exerpted here, we discuss the targeting of Gaza’s doctors.

45:38 Tarek Loubani The Genocide December 2023 (13:00)

Dr. Tarek Loubani… Over the Christmas period, Israeli rhetoric has become hysterical, its indiscriminate and targeted bombing campaigns increased. Daily hundreds are killed, while more of Gaza’s infrastructure is destroyed. In the West Bank, gangs of settlers, aided by police and the army are committing crimes worthy of Kristallnacht. It all promises this New Year will be anything but happy.

Ape Goes to Victoria Gaza Solidarity Rally and March December 3, 2023

The locals were out in force again this Sunday. Between 400-500 Victorians came out to express their outrage and disgust at both the actions of Israel and inaction of the Canadian government to do anything to stop the Gaza genocide underway.

Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Dimitri Lascaris, John Helmer December 3, 2023

Welcome to Gorilla Radio, recorded December 2nd and 3rd, 2023.

Listen at GR’s Substack site here.

On November 16th, Canada’s prime minister, Justin Trudeau received a “notice of intention to seek prosecution by the International Criminal Court”. Trudeau is one of four Canadian government officials cited in the notice for their complicity in war crimes and crimes against humanity committed by the state of Israel since the commencement of its bombardment of Gaza on October 7th.

The notice, issued by the UK-based, International Centre of Justice for Palestinians and acted upon by its Canadian associates in the Legal Working Group for Canadian Accountability under the principles of Universal Jurisdiction is supported, the ICJP maintains by, “…Canada’s support of Israel’s armed forces where there is demonstrable evidence that international crimes may have already been committed, and when there is clear evidence that further crimes against civilians will imminently be perpetrated.

Dimitri Lascaris is a Montreal-based activist, journalist, and lawyer. He served as Justice Critic in the Shadow Cabinet of the Green Party of Canada and likewise for the Green Party of Quebec. Dimitri’s interviews for TRNN are available at TheRealNews.com, and his articles appear at various sites online, including his website, DimitriLascaris.org.

Dimitri Lascaris in the first half.

And; in addition to the war crimes being committed in Gaza by Israel, as noted by UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Volker Türk; namely, “The collective punishment by Israel of Palestinian civilians… [and] … unlawful forcible evacuation of civilians.” there is too the matter of the material manner in which Israel’s crimes are being committed. Specifically, the “materiel” allegedly being used by its military, that in themselves constitute crimes.

Israel has proven its willingness to use internationally banned weapons like white phosphorous in Gaza in past attacks – and photographic evidence reveals it is doing so now – but what of the generationally destructive depleted uranium?

John Helmer is a journalist and author who’s spent decades living in and reporting from Russia. Principle behind the web news site, Dances with Bears, Helmer has too been a professor of political science, sociology, and journalism, and served as advisor to governments at the highest levels.

Among his many book titles are: ‘Skripal in Prison,’ ‘The Man Who Knows Too Much About Russia,’ ‘The Jackals’ Wedding: American Power, Arab Revolt’, ‘The Lie That Shot Down MH-17’, ‘SOVCOMPLOT: How Pirates Tried to Capture the Treasure of the Russian Seas, and Were Caught Out’, and his lately released autobiography, ‘Dunce Upon a Time: A Life of Mistakes’.

John’s latest article at Dances with Bears is, ‘BIOCHEMICAL WEAPON FOR RACE WAR — URANIUM WARHEAD POISONING IS THE SPECIALTY OF U.S. AGAINST RUSSIANS, ISRAEL AGAINST PALESTINIANS‘.

John Helmer and is Israel waging an everlasting genotoxic war against Palestine? in the second half.

But first, Dimitri Lascaris and seeking justice for Canada’s role aiding and abetting the crime of the century in Gaza.

Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Dan Kovalik, Joan Russow November 29, 2023

Welcome to Gorilla Radio, recorded November 29th, 2023

Following fifty days of Israel’s scorched earth attacks against Gaza a four day “pause” was brokered into being. As much as allowing humanitarian relief to the people of Gaza, the temporary respite in aerial and artillery bombing is meant too to interrupt the growing and increasingly adamant demonstrations of outrage around the World – most importantly within Western countries still unanimously supporting Israel despite the carnage.
Meanwhile, in an unmistakable sign of cynicism, Israel’s military is taking as many new prisoner hostages in West Bank home raids as it releases in exchange for its citizens captured October 7th.

Dan Kovalik is a lawyer, educator, labour, peace, and justice activist, democracy defender, journalist, author, and filmmaker. His book titles include: ‘Cancel This Book: The Progressive Case Against Cancel Culture’ the “Plot to” series on American efforts to undermine the governments and economies of Iran, Venezuela, and Russia, ‘No More War: How the West Violates International Law by Using ‘Humanitarian’ Intervention to Advance Economic and Strategic Interest’, ‘Nicaragua: A History of US Intervention & Resistance’, and his latest, ‘The Case for Palestine: Why It Matters and Why You Should Care‘.

Dan Kovalik in the first half.

And; The 2023 United Nations Climate Change Conference or Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC, or COP 28 is ready to get underway tomorrow, November 30th. The two-week confab conference is hosted this year in Dubai, one of the Arab Gulf States’ fossil-fuel superpowers. That fact is not lost on critics, who already charge plans to allow oil companies into the meetings effectively makes The COPs less an environmental emergency meeting than oil dealers’ bazaar.

Dr. Joan Russow is former leader of the Green Party of Canada who since stepping down from the Greens has spent her time keeping the United Nations’ feet to fire as a reporter, and filmmaker recording past climate change conferences. She’s also producer of the film, ‘Cooperatives: Counterpoint to Capitalism’, and has served as the editor and driving force behind Peace Earth and Justice News, aka PEJNews.

Ape Goes to Victoria Gaza Solidarity Rally and March November 26th, 2023

Went down to the Legislature here in Victoria to join the roughly 500-600 Victorians concerned enough about the slaughter in Gaza to brave the chill.
