Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Amy Miller, Leila Pourtavaf, Janine Bandcroft July 12, 2010

This week: Amy Miller is a Montreal-based documentary filmmaker and activist whose film, ‘Myths for Profit: Canada’s Role in Industries of War and Peace’ has featured in festivals from Calgary to Australia. Amy is also a journalist, reporting for Free Speech Radio News, The Dominion online newspaper, and the Independent Media Centre in Montreal. She was in Toronto reporting on the G20 when the Pigs turned on her, as they did many journalists, and took her into custody for the crime of revealing the myth of Canadian democracy.

Amy Miller in the first half.

And; Jaggi Singh is a name familiar to any who have followed or participated in the social peace and justice movement in Canada over the last couple of decades. He was famously grabbed off the streets of Quebec City during another G20 confab back in 2001, but this time his arrest was a more gentile affair. Jaggi Singh turned himself into police when he discovered there was an arrest warrant out for him; it’s an order charging him as a conspirator against the laws of the land. Jaggi’s first court appearance was today, and at time of writing he is still in custody. We’re not sure if Jaggi will be able to appear in the second half, but failing that, someone from his support group will.

The case for the arrest of Jaggi Singh in the second half.

And; Victoria Street Newz publisher and CFUV broadcaster, Janine Bandcroft will join us with her take on newz both local and less so at the bottom of the hour. But first, Amy Miller documenting the flowering of Canadian fascism.
