oday, a tale of two sieges: Over the weekend, supporters of the Canada Gaza Boat
came out to the Tourist Information Centre at the heart of Victoria, B.C.'s Inner Harbour to give voice to bring to an end the years-long blockade of Palestine, and most severely, the Gaza Strip. Randy Caravaggio leads the speechifying in the first half.
And; the 22nd annual Pastor's for Peace Caravan to Cuba
is set to cross the continent with goods and necessities of life denied the Cuban people these many decades past due to the U.S. embargo of the Caribbean island nation. Sarah Allwell will be heading down Cuba way with this year's Caravan for the second year in a row. Sarah Allwell in the second half.
And; Victoria Street Newz publisher and CFUV 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, Canada's contribution to the international effort to stop finally Israel's brutal and illegal blockade of Palestine and the Gaza Strip.
