For any who doubted "democratic regime change" an oxymoronic euphemism for totalitarian takeover, just take a look at what's going down in Bolivia.

Less than a week into the overthrow of Latin America's most popular president, there's blood in the streets. And, the "new elections" Western governments, environmental NGO's, and even lefty US presidential campaign front-runner Elizabeth Warren are calling for won't include Evo Morales' Movement for Socialism party. That according to democracy champion and self-proclaimed interim Bolivian president, Jeanine Áñez.

Dr. Alan MacLeod is an educator, essayist, and author whose research interests include media theory, propaganda, social media and South American politics.

MacLeod’s first book is, 'Bad News From Venezuela, 20 Years of Fake News and Misreporting', and he served as editor of 'Propaganda in the Information Age: Still Manufacturing Consent', described as "a collaborative volume which updates Herman and Chomsky’s propaganda model for the twenty-first-century media landscape". Alan's articles too appear at CounterPunch.org and FAIR.org, where his latest is, 'The Bolivian Coup Is Not a Coup—Because US Wanted It to Happen'.

Alan MacLeod in the first half.

And; racism and resource exploitation are also at the heart of British Columbia's fracked gas industry. As well as running roughshod over First Nations' rights and despoiling the lands and fresh water of the province, LNG transhipments also pose an unmitigable threat to marine life.

'The Whale and the Raven' is a newly released documentary film screening next week, November 27th and 28th at UVic's Cinecenta cinema. The film features the spectacular ecology of the Salish Sea and the people desperate to protect and preserve it.

Andrew Williamson is an award-winning, BC-based film producer and director and founder of Off Island and Crazy8's. Andrew shared production duties on the Canadian/German co-production through Cedar Island Films.

Andrew Williamson and The Whale and the Raven, a "story of humans and non-humans, united by a deep connection to the sea, separated by conflicting plans for its future" in the second half.

And; Victoria-based activist and long-time Gorilla Radio contributor, Janine Bandcroft will be here at the bottom of the hour with the Left Coast Events Bulletin of some of the good things to be gotten up to in and around our town in the coming week. But first, Alan MacLeod and the continuing coup that wasn't in Bolivia.

November 14, 2019

The fight against neo-colonism, exemplified by extractivist industry policies everywhere, continues. In Canada, and throughout jurisdictions in both North and South, resource interests and their allies in government have invoked and enacted "consultation" measures. Presented as a means of inclusion for local, primarily indigenous, community participation in the mining, logging, and fossil fuel exploration and extraction decision-making process, in reality consultation only matters when the answer to development is "Yes".

The Xinka people of Guatemala know this too well. They've been struggling for more than a decade to resist transnational capital's plans for the Escobal Mine in their community, where corruption, intimidation, violence and murder have been the response of proponents.

Mining Watch Canada and American Non-Profit organization Earthworks are currently travelling Canada on a speaking and actions tour, and they'll be in Victoria this coming Monday, November 18th.

Listen. Hear.

All are invited to hear Xinka Parliament community organizer and paralegal activist, Luis Fernando Garcia Monroy and my first guest, Earthworks' International Mining Coordinator, Ellen Moore presenting UnderMining Indigenous Rights: Pan American Silver in Guatemala at the Cadboro Bay United Church, 2625 Arbutus Road.

Ellen Moore in the first half.

And; extractivist industries and their proponents are too rumoured behind the violent ouster this past week of the duly elected president of Bolivia, Evo Morales. Canada's government, in concert with its U.S. counterpart have voiced support for the extrajudicial undermining of the president there, as they both have supported anti-democratic campaigns in Honduras, Venezuela, and Brazil in recent years.

Joe Emersberger is a Canada-based writer whose work, primarily focused on media distortion and confabulation, appears at FAIR.org, VenezuelAnalysis, The Canary, and Counterpunch.org.

Joe Emersberger and opening the hood of the well-worn mechanism of regime change in Latin America in the second half.

And; Victoria-based activist and long-time Gorilla Radio contributor, Janine Bandcroft will be here at the bottom of the hour with the Left Coast Events Bulletin of some of the good things to be gotten up to in and around our town in the coming week. But first, Ellen Moore and UnderMining Indigenous Rights: Pan American Silver in Guatemala.

Media Program on Democracy Progress: Chilean State Oppression - Good; Bolivian State Socialism - Bad

Media Conceal Chile’s State Criminality, Delegitimize Bolivian Democracy

by Lucas Koerner  - FAIR

Chile’s anti-neoliberal rebellion is entering its third week, and the brutal crackdown continues. Hard-right President Sebastian Piñera and his generals have effectively decreed the country’s oligarch-dominated democracy out of existence by sending soldiers into the streets to kill, maim and torture their own people. And, for the most part, the Western corporate media blackout persists unabated.

November 7, 2019

More than a century and half after Dickens' observation of living in the "best and worst of times", we living now on the verge of transformative technologies promising to make of our existence the paradise on Earth so long promised are, instead of grasping the best of all times, stuck in an Iron Age paradigm of endless war and violence. And worse yet, according to my first guest, things are getting worse yet.

Mathew Legge is Peace Program Coordinator for the Canadian Friends Services Committee, the peace and social justice agency of Quakers in Canada. He's also a researcher in the fields of neuroscience, social psychology, and behavioral economics whose blog, Are We Done Fighting? appears at the Psychology Today website.

 

Listen. Hear.


Matthew will be on the island next week to speak on the issues presented in his newly released book, 'Are We Done Fighting? Building Understanding in a World of Hate and Division'.

Mathew Legge in the first half.

And; Canadians seem never to tire of making connections with native sons and daughters who have achieved great things abroad. Just one such person is Dr. Norman Bethune. A national hero in China, Bethune's communist sympathies though has long presented government of Canada propagandists with a dilemma; so, while his humanitarian contributions are undeniable, Norman Bethune may just be, 80 years after his death, the most famous Canadian hero most Canadians have never heard of!  

Larry Hannant is a writer, historian, educator, social justice advocate and activist. He's author of the Robert S. Kenny Prize-winning book, 'The Politics of Passion: Norman Bethune's Writing and Art', the soon to be released, 'Bucking Conservatism: Alternative Stories of Alberta in the 1960s and 1970s', 'The Infernal Machine: Investigating the Loyalty of Canada's Citizens', and the just out, 'All My Politics Are Poetry'. Hannant and fellow speakers, Eric Zhao, Parneyan Weera, and Florian Castle will be presenting a commemoration of the life and times of Norman Bethune and simultaneous launch of Larry's book tonight at the Victoria Event Centre on Broad Street at 7pm sharp.

Larry Hannant, Norman Bethune and the politics of poetry in the second half.

And; Victoria-based activist and long-time Gorilla Radio contributor, Janine Bandcroft will be here at the bottom of the hour with the Left Coast Events Bulletin of some of the good things to be gotten up to in and around our town in the coming week. But first, Mathew Legge and strategizing responses to the current wave of hate and divisiveness.

Chile Rising: “It’s not about 30 pesos; it’s about 30 years.”

Chilean Protests: A Revolt against Neoliberalism the Media Refuses to Acknowledge

by Alan Macleod  - MintPress News

 
October 29th, 2019  
 
“Neoliberalism was born in Chile and will die in Chile” has become a rallying cry for the movement. Yet few in the West are aware of the country’s tumultuous history as an experimental laboratory for free market economics imposed on Chile by the United States.

photo: Susana Hidalgo | Twitter


Santiago, Chile — “We are at war with a powerful, relentless enemy that respects nothing nor anyone” thundered Chilean President Sebastian Piñera during a speech to the nation, deliberately echoing the infamous catchphrase of fascist military dictator Augusto Pinochet.

The “enemy” he was referencing were Chilean citizens, more than one million of them taking to the streets Friday afternoon in a revolt against the neoliberal system Piñera was implementing against their will, demanding his resignation.

The spark for the revolt that started October 14 was a 30-Peso increase to the subway fare in Santiago, the country’s capital and by far its largest and most important city. But demonstrations quickly escalated into a general protest against the decades of neoliberal economic policies carried out by successive governments that increased the cost of living and marginalized and disenfranchised the population, leading to greater social and economic inequality. As a popular slogan of the protest goes:

“It’s not about 30 pesos; it’s about 30 years.”

Everyone knows plastic, the stuff almost all of us use daily, as the greatest bane modern civilization has bestowed upon the natural environment. Destined by design to outlive both humanity and the rest of biological life, it seems hardly a day goes by without a new and more destructive facet of this ubiquitous material being unearthed.

My first guest discovered this firsthand when he found "nurdles" while taking part in a Surfrider beach cleanup at Victoria's picturesque Willow's Beach.

David Boudinot is the lead Plastic Pellet Researcher at the Surfrider Foundation Vancouver Island Chapter.

David Boudinot in the first half.

And; those believing the Bolivarian Revolution down for the count following the death of its most emblematic spokesperson, Hugo Chavez will just have to keep counting.

Though it looked for a while in Latin America, with the wave of corporate cadres and military strongmen brought into power, that the Pink Tide had ebbed, perhaps forever, but the people long benighted by death squad dictators and their Yankee bank backers are risen again.

From Mexico to Argentina, Atlantic to Pacific, there is a groundswell of activism determined to throw off again the yolk of tyranny.

Listen. Hear.

Daniel Kovalik is a lawyer, educator, labour, peace, and justice activist, democracy defender, journalist and author. He teaches international human rights law at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law, and was until recently Senior Associate General Counsel for the United Steel Workers Union. Kovalik has observed elections in Venezuela, Nicaragua, and Colombia, where he too witnessed the 2016 peace plebiscite promising an end to the generational war there.

Dan’s also served as an attorney for Colombian plaintiffs in cases alleging corporate human rights violations, and is co-recipient of a Project Censored Award for chronicling the murder of trade unionists in Colombia. Some of his many book titles include: ‘The Plot to Scapegoat Russia: How the CIA and the Deep State Have Conspired to Vilify Putin’, ‘The Plot to Attack Iran: How the CIA and the Deep State Have Conspired to Vilify Iran’, ‘The Plot to Control the World: How the US Spent Billions to Change the Outcome of Elections Around the World, and his latest, ‘The Plot to Overthrow Venezuela: How the US Is Orchestrating a Coup for Oil.’

Dan Kovalik and the rising waters of justice south in the second half.

And; Victoria-based activist and long-time Gorilla Radio contributor, Janine Bandcroft will be here at the bottom of the hour to bring us up to speed with some of what’s good to get up to in and around our town in the coming week. But first, David Boudinot and the trouble with nurdles.

Britain's Kangaroo Court for Assange

Julian Assange’s court hearing in London: Britain stages a lawless show-trial

by Oscar Grenfell - WSWS


24 October 2019

Julian Assange’s hearing in London’s Westminster Magistrates Court on Monday was a despicable show trial. Any pretence that this was somehow a legal proceeding, aiming to enforce the law and respect the rights of the accused, has been abandoned.

Assange, who defied the most powerful governments by revealing to the world’s people war crimes and corruption, appeared gaunt and tormented by what a leading UN expert has described as torture.

Craig Murray, a former British diplomat and current human rights activist, wrote that he was “shocked by just how much weight my friend has lost, by the speed his hair has receded and by the appearance of premature and vastly accelerated ageing. He has a pronounced limp I have never seen before. Since his arrest he has lost over 15 kg in weight.”

Murray stated that Assange’s “physical appearance was not as shocking as his mental deterioration. When asked to give his name and date of birth, he struggled visibly over several seconds to recall both.”

Barcelona has seen street protests, police violence, and property damage for more than a week and half, since the sentencing of separatist leaders to lengthy prison terms for their part in the 2017 unsanctioned Catalonia independence referendum.

Thousands have nightly filled the streets, while an estimated 2 million came out in protest in Barcelona to demonstrate against the court's heavy-handed rulings. Hong Kong-style disruption tactics have spread too to Barcelona's El Prat airport, while last Friday a general strike paralyzed the heart of Spain's richest region.

All this comes as Madrid's failed federal government readies for a November election; the second this year.

Listen. Hear.

Dr. Pablo Ouziel is Postdoctoral fellow at the University of Victoria’s Political Science Department and Centre for Global Studies. He’s also a native of Barcelona whose Fellowship project at UVic is, ‘Democracy Here and Now: The Exemplary Case of Spain’.

 

Pablo Ouziel from Barcelona in the first half.

 

And; two weeks into Turkey's Syria incursion another mass exodus of civilians from Syria has rendered tens of thousands homeless. It has also forced a veritable blitz of diplomatic efforts from West Asia to Sochi, Russia. Earlier this week, American vice-president, Mike Pence met with Turkish president, Recep Erdogan to negotiate a cessation of hostilities. Tuesday, Erdogan and Russian president, Vladimir Putin agreed a deal that would divide policing of the territory of concern to Turkey, actually halting its military offensive; for now.

 

John Helmer is a journalist, author, broadcaster, former political advisor to governments, and principal behind the news website, Dances with Bears. Some of Helmer's book titles include: ‘The Deadly Simple Mechanics of Society’, ‘The Jackal’s Wedding – American Power, Arab Revolt’, (co-authored with Claudia Wright) and his latest is the political memoir, ‘The Man Who Knows Too Much About Russia’. His latest article at Dances with Bears is, 'THE SULTAN BLINKED, THE TSAR AGREED TO CLOSE HIS EYES – THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE EXPANDS BY 118 KILOMETRES OF SYRIA'

"Red" Tulsi Revealed: Ancient War Hog's Head Emerges to Poke Gabbard

“Russian Asset” Is A Meaningless Noise War Pigs Make With Their Face Holes

by Caitlin Johnstone - Rogue Journalist


October 17, 2019

Both Tulsi Gabbard and the Green Party of the United States have issued scorching rebukes of Hillary Clinton for baseless accusations the former Secretary of State made during a recent interview claiming that both Gabbard and former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein are aligned with the Russian government.

“I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate,” Clinton said in a transparent reference to Gabbard.

“She’s the favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far. And that’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not because she’s also a Russian asset.”


Clinton provided no evidence for her outlandish claims, because she does not have any. Gabbard has repeatedly denied centrist conspiracy theories that she intends to run as a third-party candidate, a claim which establishment pundits have been making more and more often because they know there will never be any consequences when their claims are disproven. There is no evidence of any kind connecting either Jill Stein or Tulsi Gabbard to the Russian government.

Of course, this total lack of evidence hasn’t dissuaded Clintonites from falling all over themselves trying to justify Mommy’s claims anyway.

Playing Russian Roulette with Syria: Trump Agrees NATO Imprimatur on Turk Invasion

IN THE WAR FOR SYRIA’S HIGHWAY M4, THE KREMLIN TURKS HAVE BEEN BEATEN TO THE PUNCH BY THE RUSSIAN GENERAL STAFF, FOREIGN MINISTRY — FOR THE MOMENT

by John Helmer - Dances with Bears

October 16, 2019


Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is hoping that his meeting with President Vladimir Putin, scheduled for next Tuesday in Sochi, will give him the same battlefield advantages on Syrian territory which Putin conceded in their Idlib Agreement of last September. 

 

 

Moscow - By fixing the Putin negotiation at the limit of the 5-day agreement Erdogan negotiated yesterday with US officials in Ankara, the Turkish aim is to extend the Turkish military occupation of northeastern Syria from the frontier to Highway M4, and present Putin with a fait accompli – a Turkish invasion of Syria, followed by the surrender of the Kurdish forces and of the Syrian Army, without a serious fight.

To achieve this between now and then, the US and the Turks are hoping for a Russian military retreat from the battlefield, and the abandonment of Russian protection, in the air and on the ground, of the Syrian Army’s advance to recover sovereignty for the government in Damascus.

The Turkish invasion, the US has now agreed, is a NATO operation under the treaty’s collective defence Article 5; this implies the threat of US reprisals if the Turkish advance is fought by Kurdish, Syrian and Russian forces.

“This is an incredible outcome,” President Donald Trump has declared. “We got everything we ever could have dreamed of.”

October 17, 2019

Turkey's illegal invasion of Syria last week is the latest fracture in NATO's fragile facade as World peacekeeper and self-professed desire to "live in peace with all peoples and all governments." And it's also a blow to NATO's origin story of being founded on "the principles of democracy, individual liberty and the rule of law."

But then few familiar with international realpolitik believed that fable. So, why do nice countries like Denmark and the Netherlands, Iceland and Norway still participate in the alliance? Why does Canada?

Listen. Hear.

Bo Filter is a long-time peace activist, military veteran, and author of the book, 'The Cause of Wars and Aggression'. He's also a co-sponsor of the petition to remove Canada from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.

Bo Filter in the first half.

And; escalating climate actions around the World have elicited the predictable response from governments owing allegiance to the economic order millions believe threatens the survival of humanity; arrests, and lots of them.

But some countries are more proactive when it comes to fighting environmental rebellion. A 2015 court case revealed Canada's intelligence services spied on climate activists opposed to the proposed Enbridge Gateway pipeline. Environmental organizations taking part in the investigation of the investigators were forced to agree to gag orders, but that hasn't set well, so the Sierra Club of BC et al, in partnership with the BC Civil Liberties Association, are "seeking accountability and an end to unconstitutional spying on Canadians" in the courts.

Caitlyn Vernon is Campaigns Director at the Sierra Club. She's spent years working for climate solutions that will provide green jobs, while keeping fossil fuels "in the ground". Caitlyn launched the Pull Together initiative, that raised more than a million dollars for Indigenous legal challenges to Enbridge and Kinder Morgan pipeline approvals, and hosts the podcast, 'Mission Transition: Powering BC's Clean Energy Economy'. She's also the author of Nowhere Else on Earth: Standing Tall for the Great Bear Rainforest.

Caitlyn Vernon and making The Protest Papers in the second half.

October 10, 2019

Wars and rumours of same abound still throughout West Asia, where demonstrations for a more inclusive economy in Iraq were met with extreme state violence and the emergence of "mysterious sniper teams" reportedly killing protesters and police alike.

It's a now familiar tactic, meant to keep the chaos going in formerly stable, or at least more stable countries where instability serves better the interests of the "Global Centre of Imperialist Capitalism".

Meanwhile, American military manoeuvres in Syria stoked fears of a renewed Turkish incursion against Kurdish forces long at war there fighting those famous agents of transnational mayhem for hire, Islamic State.

It's clear, in 2019, the New World Order promised by George H. Bush thirty years ago is a mire of perpetual warfare, fought for the profit of the few.

Listen. Hear.

David Swanson is an author, activist, journalist, and radio host. He is executive director of WorldBeyondWar.org and campaign coordinator for RootsAction.org.

Some of Swanson's many book titles include: 'War Is A Lie' and 'When the World Outlawed War'. David blogs at DavidSwanson.org and WarIsACrime.org, and is the host of Talk Nation Radio. He's also a yet-awarded Nobel Peace Prize Nominee for the years, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and recipient of the U.S. Peace Memorial Foundation's 2018 Peace Prize.

David Swanson in the first half.

And; while the burning question in Canada's looming election is vital to the nation, what else might we voters still undecided on "who looks best in a canoe?" want to consider before casting our franchise into the polling pot? How about something more prosaic like the privatization of Canada's water supply and sewage management systems? The Canada Infrastructure Bank's recent announcement it would provide "innovative funding" for just such a scheme is an issue currently left undebated by all federal parties, and is one entirely ignored by all in the press save, according to my second guest, the lonely alternative media site, Press Progress.

Joyce Nelson is an award-winning Canadian freelance writer, researcher, and author whose articles appear in the Watershed Sentinel and at CounterPunch.org. Some of her seven book titles include: ‘The Perfect Machine: TV in the Nuclear Age,’ ‘Sultans of Sleaze: Public Relations and the Media,’ ‘Beyond Banksters: Resisting the New Feudalism’ and its newly released sequel, ‘Bypassing Dystopia: Hope-filled Challenges to Corporate Rule.’

Joyce Nelson and 'Privatizing Canada’s Water Infrastructure Should be an Election Issue' in the second half.

And; Victoria-based activist and long-time Gorilla Radio contributor, Janine Bandcroft will be here at the bottom of the hour with the Left Coast Events Bulletin of some of the good things to be gotten up to in and around our town in the coming week.

But first, David Swanson and wars past not passed, and finding peace in a World Beyond War.
