Featured on today’s show:

We bring you the latest edition of Groundwire – community radio news from coast to coast to coast. Today’s edition was produced right here in Montreal by CKUT.

Cold temperatures and pouring rain did not deter more than 30 Pro-Choice demonstrators from turning out Saturday, April 26th for a rally in Place Emile Gamelin. The rally was just one of many actions held across Canada the same day in solidarity with New Brunswick Pro-Choice, where the Morgentaler abortion clinic in Fredericton was forced to close its doors April 10th due to lack of government funding.

Then, we’ll go to the Philippines for a report from a fact-finding mission about violence and intimidation against Filipino workers. Every Tuesday during the month of May, the CKUT Community News Collective brings you a series of reports by David Koch from the International Fact-Finding Mission.
