Welcome to Gorilla Radio, recorded September 10th, 2022
The mantra, “A Better World is Possible” emerged in the early days of this century. Then it was a call to action to make manifest that promise by challenging those busy making the worst of Creation – destroying Nature, debasing humanity, and threatening even the survival of the planet – for the benefit of a few. I answered that clarion in this small effort, and after more than twenty years I wonder if perhaps another way to a better World is possible!

And; the 38th Annual BC and Yukon Book Prizes Gala is hosted in Vancouver September 24th. This year, Testimonio: Canadian Mining in the Aftermath of Genocides in Guatelmala has been selected as a finalist for the “Jim Deva Prize for Writing That Provokes”. The book is the collaborative effort of editors Catherine Nolin of the University of Northern British Columbia, and Grahame Russell of Rightsaction.org.
