Gorilla Radio with Kevin Neish, Diana Beresford-Kroeger, Janine Bandcroft Jan. 31, 2011

Kevin Neish is a Victoria-based human rights activist who has travelled to Palestine on numerous occasions to show solidarity for the Palestinian cause, and to protest the deprivations, violence, and criminality foisted on them by the state of Israel. His most recent action in that pursuit culminated on the night of May 31st, 2010 on board the Turkish cruise ship, Mavi Marmara, the scene of a lethal assault by Israeli commandos that resulted in the murder of nine, unarmed rights activists by the military.

Diana Beresford-Kroeger is a scientist, author, lecturer, and defender of the wilds that remain. She is a botanist; medical and agricultural researcher; and self-defined “renegade scientist” in the fields of classical botany, medical biochemistry, organic chemistry, and nuclear chemistry. Her book titles include, ‘The Global Forest,’ ‘A Garden for Life: The Natural Approach to Designing, Planting, and Maintaining a North Temperate Garden,’ ‘Arboretum America: A Philosophy Of The Forest,’ and her latest, ‘Arboretum Borealis: A Lifeline of the Planet.’
