This week on the Wednesday Morning After (August 13, 7-9am) we follow Israel’s assault on Gaza. We air a short documentary from last week’s occupation of the Federation CJA by sixteen Jewish activists. Hear from Rachel Benjamin, an Israeli woman’s journey of flipping her understanding of Israel’s relationship to Palestine on its head. Maya Rolbin-Ghanie from the Centre for Gender Advocacy helps explain the gendered violence committed by Israel in the assault on Gaza.
How did hundreds of Montrealers and some of Quebec’s most prominent hip hop, cumbia, electronic and rock bands end up in the tiny town of Bethanie? We bring you coverage from Quebec’s newest outdoor music festival, La Grosse Lanterne. We interviewed Alaclair Ensemble, Boogat and the Muscadettes in an enchanted woods an hour out of Montreal.
In the second hour, Dan Parker raps the news. We hear headlines from Democracy Now! and Moving Picture Radio talks independent film for all the screen buffs.
Did you miss Montreal International Reggae Festival? Were you there and want to relive it? Or did you catch our live broadcast and think it was awesome? Either way, we got you covered.
