Today two long-time friends of the show: Victoria-based social activist, Kevin Neish, again returned from Colombia bearing witness to the trial of union activist, Liliany Obando, imprisoned now nearly two years while waiting for her case to be heard. Kevin Neish in the first half.
And; Bethlehem-based freelance journalist and photojournalist, Jon Elmer reporting from the West Bank while the world watches sport, broadcast from his home-base in Vancouver, Canada. Jon Elmer has lived in and reported from occupied Palestine many times; his experiences there published at al Jazeera, and news websites across the internet. He’s also the author of the websites, From Occupied Palestine.org, and Jon Elmer.ca. Jon Elmer live from Occupied Palestine in the second half.
Listen here to raw interview with Jon Elmer – Feb. 14
And; Victoria Street Newz publisher and CFUV radio broadcaster, Janine Bandcroft will possibly be here at the bottom of the hour, or maybe not. Janine is over in Vancouver, documenting some of the myriad protests occurring there over the weekend. But first, Kevin Neish and news from killer Colombia’s kangaroo court system.
