Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Beth Gage, Andrew Nikiforuk, Janine Bandcroft June 4, 2012

 
This Week on GR
by C. L. Cook
This week: Welcome back Tyranny! It's been some hundreds of years since the West emerged the Dark Ages, where religious zealots ruled the land, sequestering science to dusty vaults, and consigning those who would search out knowledge to dungeon and flame. In the famously religious American state of Utah, a young American took a stand against egregious illegality, stopping a crime against both the people and nature, and therefore a crime against Creation.
 
And, for this courageous act that young man languishes today in a prison, subject to all the degradation, humiliation, and mindless abuse that so typifies such medieval structures.
 
 
Beth Gage is a documentary film maker who, with her husband George, left the advertising and commercial feature film world to found Gage & Gage productions. The Gage's latest film is the just released, 'Bidder 70' chronicling an American outrage, the story of 'Bidder 70,' Tim DeChristopher.

Beth Gage in the first half.

And; America has no monopoly on either outrage or the vast despoilation of nature; Canada too has been outrageously profligate in that regard, but never so much so as under the current Stephen Harper regime.

Andrew Nikiforuk is an award-winning journalist and author who has spent more than 20 years studying and writing about Canada's oil and gas industry. Andrew is also a columnist with The Tyee online publication, where his most recent article is titled, 'Understanding Harper's Evangelical Mission.'

And; Victoria Street Newz publisher and CFUV radio broadcaster, Janine Bandcroft will join us at the bottom of the hour to bring us news from the city's streets and beyond. But first, Beth Gage and 'Bidder 70,' Tim DeChristopher's "journey from economics student to incarcerated felon."

Welcome to GR, etc. And welcome back to Tyranny. It's been some hundreds of years since the West emerged the Dark Ages, where religious zealots ruled the land, sequestering science to dusty vaults, and consigning those who would search out knowledge to dungeon and flame. In the famously religious American state of Utah, a young American took a stand against egregious illegality, stopping a crime against both the people and nature, and therefore a crime against Creation.
 
And, for this courageous act that young man languishes today in a prison, subject to all the degradation, humiliation, and mindless abuse that so typifies such medieval structures.
 
In the twilight days between the inglorious exit of former president George W. Bush and the ascension of Barack Obama, minions of the late lawless Bush years attempted a robbery against the citizenry by snapping up federal lands' oil and gas leases in an illegitimate bonanza. Tim DeChristopher, now famously known as 'Bidder 70' stood against the bandits, not with a gun but with a bidder's paddle, disrupting an auction that ultimately saved for the people and the environment vast tracts of land, some 22,000 acres - for now.

Beth Gage is a documentary film maker who, with her husband George, left the advertising and commercial feature film world to found Gage & Gage productions. Since 1993 the Gage's have produced award-winning films exploring humanitarian and environmental issues; most notably, 'Fire on the Mountain: The Story of the Men of the 10th Mountain Division,' 'Troubled Waters: The Effects of Dams on Rivers,' and 'American Outrage,' the story of a 35 year-long fight against government injustice by two Shoshone sisters that has garnered 17 festival awards to date. The Gage's latest film is the just released, 'Bidder 70' chronicling another American outrage, the story of 'Bidder 70,' Tim DeChristopher.

And; America has no monopoly on either outrage or the vast despoilation of nature; Canada too has been outrageously profligate in that regard, but never so much so as under the current Stephen Harper regime. The 'New government of Canada' as the prime minister styles it, has shown Canadians wary of granting his regressive party a majority their fears were more than justified. Bill C-38, more commonly known as the "Omnibus budget bill" is 420 pages of pure outrage, devoting fully a quarter of its immensity to undermining generations of environmental protection. With its "law and order" predecessor, Bill C-38 kicks from under the nation the vestige slats of what was once a marginally progressive Canadian social democracy construct.  

Andrew Nikiforuk is an award-winning journalist and author who has spent more than 20 years studying and writing about Canada's oil and gas industry. His book titles include: 'Saboteurs: Wiebo Ludwig's War Against Big Oil,' 'Pandemonium,' examining the global trade on disease exchanges, the Rachel Carson Environment Book Award-winning, 'The Tar Sands: Dirty Oil and the Future of the Continent,' and his latest, the 2011 Governor General non-fiction award nominated, 'Empire of the Beetle: How Human Folly and a Tiny Bug Are Killing North America's Great Forests,' of special concern to we here in British Columbia.
 
Andrew is also a columnist with The Tyee online publication, where his most recent article is titled, 'Understanding Harper's Evangelical Mission.'
