This Week: Damien Gillis is an award-winning independent documentary filmmaker, environment defender, indefatigable investigator, and a deep thorn in the side of any who would threaten the survival of his native Pacific coast. Damien has just released his latest film, ‘Oil in Eden: The Battle to Protect Canada’s Pacific Coast.’ Common Sense Canadian, Damien Gillis in the first half.
Ken O’Keefe was here in Victoria speaking of his vision for a just resolution to the Israeli occupation of Gaza, and of his experience aboard the Turkish flagged cruise ship, the Mavi Marmara which was stormed by Israeli commandos May 31st of this year. That unprovoked attack resulted in the murder of nine peace activists, at least four of them executed as they lay wounded on the decks of the ill-fated ship. Ken O’Keefe and a survivor’s tale in the second half.
And; Victoria Street Newz publisher and CFUV broadcaster, Janine Bandcroft will be here at the bottom of the hour to bring us newz of Victoria’s street community giving thanks, and more. But first, Damien Gillis and ‘Oil in Eden: The Battle to Protect Canada’s Pacific Coast.’
