'Bernard the Roughneck' campaign has been in preparation for months, may soon target Rachel Notley

Rabble.ca/ - 26 September 2016 - 11:03pm

The "Bernard the Roughneck" campaign rolled out against the Trudeau government in Ottawa a week ago has been in preparation for at least seven months, possibly longer.

However, while each of the Canadian Association of Oilwell Drilling Contractors, the Conservative Party of Canada, and Rebel Media appear to have been directly involved in aspects of the effort, and both Alberta's Wildrose Party and the frontrunner for the leadership of the Progressive Conservative Party have played supporting roles, it cannot be determined who started the ball rolling or the degree of co-operation among the participants in this piece of political performance art.

Lennox S. Hinds - Human Rights Lawyer, Segment 1

Radio 4 All - 26 September 2016 - 9:28pm
Professor Hinds gave the keynote at the Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression 43rd Anniversary Human Rights Awards. He spoke about racist policing and the Federal, State and local conspiracy (COINTELPRO) used to destroy the Black Panther Party which in the 1960's was organizing for civilian control over the police departments that were terrorizing Black and Latino communities. CPAC, Civilian Police Accountability Council, the ordinance now before the Chicago City Council because of the dedicated organizing of the Chicago Alliance, would do just that, remove authority from failed Mayor Emanuel and place control in an elected civilian board. Professor Hinds speaks about the role of police in protecting the profits of the corporations and offers several routes to force corporate power to relinquish control. He comments on the dismal Human Rights voting record of the United States at the United Nations and an inadvertent path recently opened to hold our government to account before the world court through citizen led commissions that the US empowered when it signed the Human Rights Declaration.

This Week In Palestine: Omar Barghouti and others on the growing power of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement , Segment 1

Radio 4 All - 26 September 2016 - 5:12pm
In this edition we focus on the growing power of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement. In a few minutes we will hear from the key spokesperson for the BDS movement, Omar Barghouti, but first we take a look at how support for the movement is spreading into significant communities of color as they recognize the relationship of their struggle to that of the Palestinians. We begin this exploration by reading from an article by Columbia University professor Hamid Dabishi who is professor of Iranian Studies and Comparative Literature. “Two significant public events came together in late August to turn this season of morbid political despair in the United States presidential election to highlight a far more significant social movement otherwise hidden to the outside world. One was when the American football team San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand for the nationnal anthem before games because he said the US oppresses African-Americans and other minorities. The other was when the widely popular pop singer Beyonce brought a few mothers of police violence victims to the MTV Video Music Awards Ceremony as her special guests. "These two public events are predicated on a much deeper and more enduring development in the US known as Black Lives Matter, a grassroots civil rights movement that originated in the African-American community campaigning against systematic violence and racism towards black people. ..." Israel is not taking this lying down. They have organized their propaganda machine to fight back against the BDS onslaught. We read an article from the Israeli Newspaper Maariv which makes this point. ... Finally, our feature presentation today is a speech by BDS’s major voice to the world, Omar Barghouti. It was to be presented at Stanford University in person, but as we heard, Israel has suspended Barghouti’s travel permits in an effort to silence him, so the presentation was via SKYPE.

By sticking with Harper climate targets, Trudeau flinches at chance to show leadership

Rabble.ca/ - 26 September 2016 - 2:27pm

Six years ago the Liberals (and NDP) voted for the Climate Change Accountability Act (Bill C-311), supporting emission reduction targets of 25 per cent below 1990 levels by 2020 and 80 per cent below 1990 levels by 2050. (This bill was passed by the House of Commons, but killed without debate by the Conservative majority in the Senate.)

Canada's media needs to get over objectivity and start practicing solidarity

Rabble.ca/ - 26 September 2016 - 10:33am

Two weeks ago, nearly 100 people gathered outside of the Toronto Stock Exchange and marched through downtown Toronto to protest the North Dakota Access Pipeline and express solidarity with the blockade at the ancestral lands of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.

The police were there from the get-go, corralling the group and blocking traffic. Led by a group of five Indigenous women, we waded through the streets, chanting, drumming and singing.

The media, on the other hand, showed up only after we proved newsworthy: when the rally collided with the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

It started with a CP24 reporter. She showed up with a cameraperson at King and Duncan, demanding TIFF guards let us continue marching down King Street.
