AW@L Radio - 2012-03-30 - Racists confronted across the land and Indigenous Resistance + G20 Report and more

by Dan KellarAW@L Radio

Friday March 30th 2012 - The response to white power #boneheads organising in Edmonton and London is strong as hundrdeds of anti-racists and #antifa warriors drive neo-nazis back under the rock they came out from under. These actions occur as communities in Vancouver come together to march for the elimination of racial discrimination and as canadian minister of censorship and deportation Jason Kenney uses questions period to have his government attack No One Is Illegal (http://nooneisillegal.org) as "more than just a noisey protest group." This first section also includes MMC audio of the Musqeam blockade against condo developments (http://montreal.mediacoop.ca/audio/musqueam-against-condo-development-th...) and a piece from Tracy Bomberry on 6 years after the Kanonhstaton land reclamation and subsequent OPP raid on the site near Caledonia on Six Nations - Haldimand tract land. This first part finishes up with an update

There is also a piece from Jesse Rosenfeld on new info on community infiltration pre-G20 and a new (and related) article from G20 political target Kelly Pflug-Back posted on the @mediacoop - Scoring for Information: Police infiltration tactics viewed as a violation of women's bodies and rights (http://www.dominionpaper.ca/articles/4342).

The final section of the show looks at continuing resitance government cutbacks, including a distruption of the federal budget,and the announcement for an anti-austerity campuout in Kitchener mid-April. We also look to #ethicaloil's dirty tricks campaign, with a response from Environmental Defense (http://environmentaldefence.ca/blog/theres-nothing-ethical-about-false-a...)

We close off by including more information about #ranoufthegoof a self-proclaimed "#occupy" activist who continues to disrupt #occupytoronto meetings after 100+ #occupyvancouver members signed a letter outlining his bad behaviour, then 2 working groups of #OCCTO also asked Greg Ranouf to be banned from their meetings. more on this case can be found at http://thismanisdangerous.wordpress.com
