Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook and David Swanson, Anthony Fenton – for Monday, November 6th, 2006

This week on GR political activist David Swanson watching America's mid-term polls; Anthony Fenton and Canada's Afghanistan Adventure; and, Janine Bandcroft, brings us up to speed on all the good things to get up to in and around Victoria in the coming week.

Tomorrow is the big day south of the 49th – election day for America. It matters little that the 2000 election that brought George W. Bush to the world was rigged, or that the 2004 election that kept George W. Bush in power was fixed, tomorrow will be different; tomorrow is the day the Republicans will lose their majority control of both the house of representatives and the senate. It will be the day American democracy will be reinstated, the disastrous reign of Bush and his war party will be relinquished, and finally articles of impeachment can be entertained. Or will it? David Swanson is the Washington director of Democrats.com and ImpeachPAC.org. He is co-founder of the group, After Downing street.org and creator of Meet with Cindy.org. David Swanson and watching the polls in the first half.

And; like America, Canada too is embroiled in an illegal, immoral, sensless war that can only lead to miserable failure. Five years from its beginnings, Canadian soldiers still occupy Afghanistan. But today "The Mission" has taken on a different, and uglier direction. Since its change of character, more than thirty Canadian soldiers, and an unknown number of Aghanis have been killed. Anthony Fenton is a Vancouver-based freelance journalist and co-author of the book 'Canada in Haiti: Waging War on the Poor Majority. His newest title, The Afghanistan Adventure: Canada's foreign policy for the 21st century is due for release in the new year. Anthony Fenton in the second half.

And; Janine Bandcroft will be here at the bottom of the hour to bring us up to speed with all that's good to do in and around Victoria this week. But first, David Swanson and the beginning of the end for George W. Bush?
