Despite its title, C-36 does everything but protect communities and exploited persons leaving sex workers outside of police protection and more vulnerable to targeted violence and exploitation than ever. CKUT’s Sula Greene spoke with STELLA’s Robyn Maynard about the implication of Bill C-36 and the ongoing targeting of sex workers in Canada.

-And finally, we’ll go to Ferguson, Missouri, where riots errupted following the police murder of unarmed Black youth Michael Brown in August. A Grand Jury is set to release a decision on whether or not Darren Wilson, the officer who killed Brown, will face charges. We’ll hear from Ferguson activist Ashley Yates of Millenial Activists United. This piece was produced by Sojourner Truth Radio at KPFK.
