Wednesday, October 16th:
For our fundraising drive, you will be hearing the best moments of News Now. We are showcasing the importance of community-led news and underrepresented voices on the radio in a time when multinational media conglomerates rule the airwaves and a shrinking pool of opinions and tastes are represented. Please call 416-736-5656 at any point throughout the show to donate and support community radio and alternative news.
And to show we care about our listeners, every show we are offering our first donor of $20 or more a brand-new, hot off the presses, 15th edition of Upping the Anti, a radical collection of publications which documents resistance groups and international left politics from a variety of voices!

Today’s feature clips include segments from interviews on the topics of Pickering Nuclear’s risky continued power production, programs that connect incarcerated people with their families outside of prison, Canada’s neo-imperialistic foreign policy reality and coverage of a migrant prison hunger strike in Lindsay. Then, on our Independent Arts Report, we will hear clips about local independent artist collectives and projects such as RISE poetry and the BLK Barbie Doll project. On our York Connection Report, we hear about issues and topics that are connected to the York Community directly such as the imprisonment of York Professor John Greyson in Cairo and clip from an interview with the Jane and Finch community group Freedom Fridayz.
