Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Kim Ives, Don Staniford, Janine Bandcroft Jan. 30, 2012

This week: Kim Ives is founder of, and contributing editor to Haiti Liberté, a newspaper with offices in Haiti and New York, and has more than twenty years experience reporting with the paper, Haiti Progrès, and hosts the weekly, WBAI New York radio program, ‘Haiti: The Struggle Continues.’ Kim also hosts Haitian TV’s ‘Kafou Verite,’ produced by Haiti Liberté, and is a filmmaker who has collaborated on many films documenting human rights abuses, trade struggle, and conflicts between the island’s peasant farmers and corrupt State enterprises, and has contributed to the books, ‘Dangerous Crossroads,’ ‘The Haiti Files,’ and Haiti: A Slave Revolution.’ His most recent is ‘Tectonic Shifts.’ Kim Ives in the first half. And; it’s a case that could break new ground in the titanic battle to remove Atlantic Salmon fish farms from the waters of the coast of B.C. Right now, Don Staniford is being sued by Mainstream Canada, a subsidiary of Cermaq, a fish farm trans-national whose single majority stock-holder is the Norwegian government. Mainstream lawyers assert Staniford “disseminated and published defamatory and false statements about the company”on the Global Alliance Against Industrial Aqauaculture, or GAAIA site. GAAIA’s web server dropped the site under pressure, but it has now been replaced by the less noxious(?) Salmonfarmingkills.com. Don Staniford and B.C.’s “Salmon versus Goliath” 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. Chris Cook hosts Gorilla Radio, airing live every Monday, 5-6pm Pacific Time, in Victoria at 101.9FM, 104.3 cable. He also serves as a contributing editor to the web news site, http://www.pacificfreepress.com.
