Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook and Dave Lindorff v. The United States of America July 28, 2020

Welcome back to Gorilla Radio’s continuing efforts, NOT broadcast live from CFUV Radio in the basement of the Student Union Building at the University of Victoria, but emanating live-to-tape via Skype from our home-based … studios on this date, July 28th, 2020.

In the Spring of 2019, muck-raking journalist, Dave Lindorff discovered a target had been stuck on his back by the US Department of Homeland Security. He’s spent the last year trying to find out why he’s on the Terrorist Watch List, and now he’s taking that fight to the courts.

Today, Dave Lindorff and charting America’s progress from democracy to police state.

Dave Lindorff is an award-winning journalist, author, and founding member of the media collective, ThisCantBeHappening.net.

Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, David Rovics July 22, 2020

Welcome back to Gorilla Radio’s continuing efforts, NOT broadcast live from CFUV Radio in the basement of the Student Union Building at the University of Victoria, but emanating live-to-tape via Skype from our home-based … studios on this date, July 22nd, 2020.

Federal troops are in Portland. Nearly two months in to daily police brutality demonstrations there, the president decided to deploy the “Minneapolis” treatment; or as Attorney General, Bill Barr calls it, the “Occupy Model”. And there are other cities slated to receive the same.
Itinerant musician and now covid-caged broadcaster, David Rovics is in Portland, where his relatively mild-mannered home city has suddenly become the center of Civil War 2.020. As he can’t tour, David is doing the next best thing, raising Hell on the internet, and helping foment a Renters strike.

“Welcome back to the program, David. I think it’s three of the last four years, fire has been the big story out of Portland. We’ve had a late summer up the road here in BC, what’s your forest situation like down there?”
