Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Patrick Henningsen, Janine Bandcroft July 4, 2011

This week: Patrick Henningsen is a UK-based pundit, commentator, online editor, journalist, and founder of 21st Century Wire, a news service launched during the 2009 Copenhagen Climate Change Summit.

According to them, The 21st Century Wire is an attempt to, quote; “deliver content that looks squarely at power, its architecture, as well as the seeds of corruption.”

Henningsen is in the United States today, following the burgeoning story of twin nuclear disasters in the making in the heartland that aren’t making the headlines.

Patrick Henningsen in the first half.

And; the Annual Pastor’s for Peace Caravan to Cuba embarked on its 22nd trans-continental pilgrimage to bring goods sanctioned by the United States to that embargoed Caribbean island.

Our own two-time Caravanista, CFUV broadcaster, and Victoria Street Newz publisher, Janine Bandcroft accompanied the Canadian contingent from our neck of the woods here in the Pacific Northwest to the Peace Arch at Blaine, Washington to see this year’s crew safely across the border.

And; Janine will join us live at the bottom of the hour to bring us other news from Victoria and beyond. But first, Patrick Henningsen from the waters rising around America’s Midwest nuclear facilities.
