Andy Kroll and the black and white of joblessness in America in the first half.

And; last week, Gaza Freedom Flotilla II attempted to sail into the “liberated” Gaza Strip to deliver aid and messages of good will from the world beyond Israel’s unofficial blockade. Victoria’s Kevin Neish traveled again across the world to participate, planning to make a second journey on the Turkish cruise ship, Mavi Marmara.

Kevin is back in Victoria, and will join us in the second half to discuss his second encounter with the Israeli embargo 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 the goings on on Victoria’s streets and beyond. But first, Andy Kroll and the jobless behind America’s jobless recovery.
