Show Notes

Intro theme: “The Morning After” by The Narcicyst.

On this week’s show, we’re finishing up a focus week of programming on environmental justice.

We’ve been talking about the growing grassroots movement in Quebec, Canada, and internationally for climate justice, featuring artists, musicians and activists live on the airwaves, highlighting voices contributing to the global struggle against climate change and for environmental justice.

We’ve been presenting this special week of programming at a critical time in Quebec, a contribution to the growing alarm toward state-driven industrial projects widely recognized to threaten the ecological health of Quebec’s people and environment. From the market-driven Plan Nord recently announced by the unpopular Liberal government, to the struggle to stop shale gas exploration in Quebec that has sparked powerful grassroots mobilizations and the ongoing struggles against industry-driven land expropriation of indigenous territories such as proposed mining projects in Kanesatake.

We hope it’s been a week of inspiring your mind and heart to tune-in to the critical struggle for environmental justice locally and internationally.
