Featured on today’s program:

-A group of Cree youth arrived in Montreal after having walked over 850 KM from Mistissini in northern Quebec, in order to oppose uranium mining on their territory. CKUT radio was there to welcome them, and we’ll hear some of the voices of the marchers.

-We’ll bring you an interview with Yazan al-Saadi, journalist, researcher and contributor to Al-Akhbar based in Beirut, Lebanon. This interview explores the contemporary relationship between western military power and global NGOs.

-Then, we bring you an interview with Aerin Jacob, a member of Sustainable Canada Dialogues on the importance of science communication when it comes to climate change.

-All that plus an interview with Barb MacQuarrie with the Centre for Research & Education on Violence against Women & Children.
