Tuesday, October 22nd:
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! To learn more visit: http://uppingtheanti.org/
Today’s feature clips include segments from interviews on the topics of misrepresentation of trans women in the media, health and human rights of incarcerated women, the Toronto Police Accountability Coalition, and the documentary ‘Shadism’. Then, on our Independent Arts Report, we will hear clips about local independent artist collectives and projects such as SKETCH Toronto, and the Big Bang Boom Festival. On our York Connection Report, we hear about issues and topics that are connected to the York Community directly such as Mad Pride Toronto and the rights of psychiatric survivors, OPIRG York, and the Black Creek Community Farm, an urban farm that’s part of the York Community.
