Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Gilad Atzmon, Phil Nauta, Janine Bandcroft Mon. May 9, 2011

Gilad Atzmon is known for his unsparing criticism of the policies of his former home-country, Israel and the complicity in those policies of his ex-compatriots and their supporters within the Sayanim community of diaspora Jews. He has been assailed from all sides for his uncompromising determination to speak out for human rights denied the occupied Palestinian people, remaining one of the most thoughtful and ardent proponents of justice for the victims of Israel, while his writing and lectures serve as clarion for a more humane world.

Gilad Atzmon is currently on the road, touring the USA to “meet with friends and supporters to talk about Israel, Palestine and the power of the beauty.” He is using the tour to fund raise for various humanitarian causes concerning Palestine, and will join us from San Francisco in the first half.

Phil Nauta is an organic gardener, educator, entrepreneur, and author. He was a seminal instructor with Gaia College here in Victoria, and is a past director with The Society for Organic Urban Land Care, or SOUL. While in town, he also ran an organic landscaping business and organic fertilizer retail business, saying he is “compelled to write and teach other gardeners about organic methods.” He does that now through his SmilingGardener website, and with his new book, ‘The Holistic Gardening Handbook.’

Phil Nauta, getting dirty in the garden, and living it in 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 some of the goings on going on on Victoria’s streets and beyond. But first, Gilad Atzmon talking up the power of beauty on the road in America.
