Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Terry Wolfwood, Jon Elmer, Janine Bandcroft, Jan. 12, 2009

This week, Terry Wolfwood is a Victoria-based writer and activist who also serves as director of the Barnard-Boecker Centre Foundation. She recently ventured to the Middle-East to Occupied Palestine, Lebanon, and Jordan to see better what life there is like.

In the second half we'll be joined by Canadian freelance photojournalist Jon Elmer to discuss aspects of this bloody turkey-shoot, Operation Cast Lead' that neither Canada's State media, nor the corporate news conglomerates will. Jon has lived in and reported from Occupied Palestine and he's the creator of the websites, 'From Occupied Palestine.org, and JonElmer.ca. Jon Elmer in the second half.

Janine Bandcroft will be here at the bottom of the hour to bring us up to speed with some of the good goings-on going on in and around the lower island in the coming week, and to continue updating us on Victoria's ongoing shelter emergency.
