Gorilla Radio for Monday, October 16, 2006
Sunday, 15 October 2006 22:33

This week on GR: Veteran for peace, Mike Ferner and reports from inside Iraq's Red Zone. Tom Rankin and the hijacking of B.C. Hydro. And; Janine Bandcroft brings us up to speed with all that's good to do in and around Victoria this week.

Who could have known? Who could have foreseen the disaster Iraq would become before the missiles and bombs fell, before the shock and awe?

The millions marching in the streets of towns and cities across the world knew. Movie stars and lesser artists and political celebrities who were ridiculed and refused air time knew. The myriad organizations, both established and hurriedly cobbled against the impeding attack knew. And, the men who planned and executed this horror knew they would profit it.
More than three and a half years on, and the situation in Iraq is worse now than ever. Mike Ferner is an American peace activist, freelance journalist, and author of the book, ‘Inside the Red Zone: A Veteran for Peace Reports from Iraq.’

Mike Ferner in the first half.

And; Memories of the greatest rip-off perpetrated against the public weal of the young 21st have faded in light of George W. Bush’s titanic criminality since, but British Colombian’s forget the Enron electricity market scam at their peril.



 




Though George Bush’s ‘Kenny Boy’ Lay may rest in peace, while his lieutenants in the looting spree of California and beyond call cells home, privatized power is still with us, and as then it is casting a greedy eye to B.C.’s market and generating capacity.

Tom Rankin is one British Colombian not prepared to stand by as Premier Campbell and his privateers take the continent’s best run public utility out of the people’s hands.

Tom Rankin and stopping the Hydro hijacking in the second half.

And; Janine Bandcroft will be here at the bottom of the hour to bring us up to speed with some of the groovy things to do in and around Victoria this week.
