THE SHOW – First Hour
Listen to the 1st hour:
Regular contributor Jen Bieber brings us two interviews this week. The first is to mark the anniversary of the Occupy Montreal movement. Jen spoke with Dan Parker, member of the original Occupy Montreal movement and an active member of le Chorale du peuple, a working group of Occupy Montreal that recycles popular songs into political ballads. They discussed the history of the occupy movement and what this looked like on the ground in Square Victoria, and how Occupy Montreal continues to be active.
Then an interview with Frédérique Briere-Marquez, an intern at the Social Justice Committee, about an event hosted by the committee this Wednesday, October 17th at 12:30 featuring a discussion with Juan Jose Monterosa. Monterosa is a worker’s rights activist in Guatemala and will focus on his work and the situation for workers in Honduras.
