This week on GR: David Barsamian is the multi-award winning director of Alternative Radio, which airs weekly across North America and beyond, (including right here at CFUV every Wednesday afternoon at 1:00pm pacific time) and remains an entirely independent voice of reason and humanity, an island of sanity in a toss’d sea of shlock jocks, puerile morning “mad men,” and aspiring dime store mass media demagogues. He is co-author of numerous books, his collaborators some of the foremost thinkers and social justice activists of our time; like: Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Arundhati Roy, Edward Said, Tariq Ali, and more. His latest books are ‘What We Say Goes,’ and Targeting Iran.’

And; the week past marked the observance of Remembrance Day here in Victoria, (Veteran’s Day south of the 49th) and I went down to the memorial to the MacKenzie-Papineau Brigade, located off the main grounds of the Legislature, to remember those Canadians killed fighting the fascists in Spain during that country’s calamitous civil war.

And; Victoria Street Newz publisher and CFUV broadcaster, Janine Bandcroft will join us at the bottom of the hour to bring us newz from the city’s streets, and a follow-up on the attack on the mayor’s house and property and that attack’s aftermath.
