Naomi Wolf is an American author, social critic, political acitivist and feminist. Her book ‘The Beauty Myth’ was a landmark moment for gender discourse in America, and was cited, when released in the early 1990’s, by the New York Times as “one of the most important books of the 20th Century.” Wolf’s latest book may prove too to be of equal value to the 21st Century, if in the future books of its nature are to be allowed reviewed in the Times, or anywhere else. ‘The End of America: Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot’ is an urgent rallying cry to arms to all that would save American, and world democracy.

Gorilla Radio New Year’s Eve 2007

Year’s end is nigh. And what a relief it would be to send off bloody 2007, as we did its bloody predecessors, happily, if only 2008 looked to be an improvement.

But the war will grind wearily on in darkness, as electoral politics command the corporate media lime-light in the United States.

ape at the december bear mountain tree-sit demo

A day at the Bear Mountain Highway connector protest at Langford City Hall. Southern Vancouver Island is under intense development pressures. Property values are sky high and the usual grasp for lucre at all cost has become a stampede of building, forest eradication, and speculation, threatening what little wildlife, rural, and agricultural land remains. Citizen resistance is coming to a head, and the battle ground will be a small forested patch of woods in the path of a planned highway expansion. See http://treesit.blogspot.com for more, or search ‘Bear Mountain.’

Gorilla Radio with Stevie Cameron on Last Amigo Karlheinz Shreiber Apr. 23, 2001

Eds. note: Karlheinz Shreiber managed to stave off yet again extradition from Canada to his native Germany, the former arms trader and emissary for German industry, refused to testify explicitly today (Nov. 29, ’07) on matters of interest to the Parliamentary committee struck to hear his allegations of deals cut with the former sitting prime minister, Brian Mulroney before being let out of jail, and allowed to gather his pertinent materials. The state allowed he be held in house arrest pending the outcome of the growing scandal hearing. Shreiber, a Canadian citizen, has fought the extradition proceedings launched by Germany for his alleged involvement with political crimes committed in that country more than a decade ago.
Here’s how GR covered the initial press discovery of the connections between Brian Mulroney and Karlheinz Shreiber back in 2001.
