Tune in to Off the Hour today from 5-6pm for community news from Montreal to Ferguson and beyond.

Featured on today’s program:

-An interview with Will Prosper, community organizer with Montréal Nord Républik, as well as Samanthea Samuels, Co-President of McGill’s Black Student Network, commenting on yesterday’s grand jury decision to not indict Darren Wilson, the police officer who shot and killed unarmed Black youth Michael Brown. Prosper, a former police officer and now anti-police brutality activist, will comment on the lessons to be drawn from Ferguson in Montreal. We’ll also hear coverage directly from the streets of Ferguson from Democracy Now.

-We’ll hear a report from the Transgender Day of Rememberance, which took place last Thursday. CKUT’s Sheila Ferrando was out at the vigil in Montreal, organized by Queer Concordia.

-Finally, we go to Mexico, to hear from the Women’s Network representative of AMARC, the World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters, on the situation of the 43 missing students from Ayotzinapa in Iguala. Maru Chávez will discuss the current public outrage over the situation in Mexico as well as a recent Telecommunications Law that has gone into effect.
