Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Terry Wolfwood, Mehdi Najari, Janine Bandcroft Dec. 13, 2010

Local human rights and social justice activist, Terry Wolfwood attended an Algerian conference on Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli captivity. Terry has travelled to the West Bank and Jordan to participate in meetings and actions to further Palestinian dignity and national self-actualization on numerous occasions, bringing news of their struggle back to Victoria. Terry Wolfwood in the first half.

And; all signs point to a spring election in B.C., where the economy, and sudden introduction of the so-called, Harmonized Sales Tax promises to be a big issue. But there’s more going on in the province, and within the two leading parties, than just the HST.

Mehdi Najari is an on again off again member of the NDP, who ran against Carole James for the party’s leadership in 1988 because, he says he was “fed up with [the] corporate lackeys and impostors” controlling the NDP. Mehdi Najari and the NDP’s latest chance to get it right n the second half.

And; Victoria Street Newz publisher and CFUV broadcaster, Janine Bandcroft will join us at the bottom of the hour to bring us up to speed with the latest newz from the city’s streets and beyond. but first, Terry Wolfwood and internationalizing the plight of Palestinian prisoners held by Israel.
