Plowing a steady course between Washington State and Alaska, the 10,000 ton oil tankers barge through BC’s inside passage. It seems nothing can stop their relentless progress, neither First Nation objection, rumoured moratoriums, nor environmental imprecations.

Stewart in 2016, and … Continue reading “Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Daniel Kovalik, Ingmar Lee, Janine Bandcroft November 8th, 2018”

Eleven days have passed, and memory of the horror bombing of the al-Fu’ah and Kafrayah refugees has largely disappeared here, subsumed and roiled beneath the ceaseless, churning news-cycle. But then, the real story of the fate of those mainly women and children killed while waiting, Checkpoint Charlie-style, for exchange from one side of the Syrian … Continue reading “Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Whitney Webb, Patrick Henningsen, Daniel Kovalik, Christina Nikolic April 26th, 2017”

Colombia human rights observors had grounds for guarded optimism back in 2006 when the infamous AUC, a link-up of paramilitary privateers responsible for some of the worst atrocities visited upon the mainly rural peasant population during that nation’s decades-long civil war was disbanded, and some of its key leaders extradited to the United States. But … Continue reading “Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Daniel Kovalik, Roger Annis July 20, 2016”

In these last years, say since Armenia and Auschwitz, we here in the West have been taught: Genocide is bad. But, even so, it seems a lesson slowly learnt by a variety of corporate and governmental operatives who continue to promote this most ancient practice. Couched in the meta-language of modern trade negotiations, at this … Continue reading “Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Daniel Kovalik, Christina Nikolic, Janine Bandcroft Feb. 4, 2013”

Last week, the Joint Investigation Team, an internationally composed body looking into the downing over Ukraine of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 more than two years ago released some of their findings, enough to implicate, they say, Russia in the crime.
