Off the hour / Apr. 22, 5-6pm / Earth Day / Groundwire

Tune in to Off the Hour at 5pm!

On today’s program:

We go to Beijing for a report from CKUT’s Tiffany Lam on Bamboo Bicycles Beijing. The group is offering workshops on how to build bikes out of bamboo and is attempting to start a coversation on sustainability.

Also, we will be problematizing Earth Day. We’ll be joined live by phone by Amanda Lickers indigenous media activist to talk about the implications of celebrating ‹Earth Day› on April 22nd, and the corporatization of a day that purports to recognize the importance of climate justice.

We also bring you Groundwire, community news from coast to coast to coast, from the National Campus-Community Radio Association. This week’s show was produced by CJLY in Nelson, BC.
