AW@L Radio - Idle No More Day of Action Jan 11.

We (Aaron Lakoff) introduces INM resistance, dispute mainstream media bullshit and misrepresentation, give space to Chief Wallace Fox, report on prisoner solidarity actions + support from palestine

by Dan KellarAW@L Radio

From the January 11th 2013 edition of AW@L Radio - We star the show with a great introductory piece field by Aaron Lakoff for FSRN on Idle No More resistance then read a post What if Native Stop Subsidizing Canada from Dru OjaJay of the mediacoop which took down the servers due to its popularity.  The post looks into the obvious fact that first nations subsidize canadian industries, economies and government activity, and that the treaties and agreements that established canada should still be the base principals for our relations ships with indigenous nations..  The piece also further exposes Christie Blatchford as a racist propagandist.

We then look to actions around the world in support of Idle No More including a banner drop over the 401, Canada's busiest highway.  We look again to racist colonial media coverage of the Idle No More movement then play a very powerful piece from Chief Wallace Fox who spoke at the AFN meeting on january 10th 2013.

We then feature 2 segments on prisoner solidarity with INM, first with a piece by anti-poverty activist Nyki Kish who was inspired by the ongoing uprising of indigenous people in canada and was a part of a fast with 4 other members of the max range at grand valley institute in ktichener in solidarity with Theresa Spence and all imprisoned indigenous women.

Second is an interview with anti-colonial anti-capitalist alex hundert who is also fast in in jail with other members of his range at the penetang prison in solidarity with Chief Spence and Idle No More.  This piece has been turned into a podcast on its own available on the podcast network.

Next up is reports on likely start of roving blockades in sarnia of refineries which poison the nearby indigenous community without compensation.


We end with a piece from electronic intifada looking at Solidarity with Idle No More from Palestine in a piece which also rips apart racist writings posted in the liberal blog-dump huffpocan.


Idle No More update was a segment on the weekly 2 hour AW@L radio (16:00-18:00est) on CKMS 100.3FM CKMS * Community * Co-op * Campus * Radio - Waterloo -
