Featured on today’s program:

-Tomorrow, hundreds of people across Turtle Island will be invited to donate their day’s wage in labour to “Nourish the Nation”, an autonomous Indigenous garden project that feeds communities on the front line of harmful extraction projects, as well as single families and elders. We’ll be speaking with Ruby from Wage Solidarity to find out more.

-Then, It’s been over 2 months now since 43 students went missing in Guerrero, Mexico but still no justice has been served.  CKUT’s Sula Greene spoke with activist Eloy Rivas about the ongoing state violence and corruption in Mexico and  why it’s important that Canadians demand the federal government should remove Mexico from it’s list of safe countries.

-Finally, we look at the ongoing protests in Mexico and solidarity actions here in Montreal, focusing our discussion on the idea of justice. What would justice mean for the missing students of Ayotzinapa, and for all those affected by the violence of the drug war? Emma Noradounkian and Molly Korab speak with Mexican students and activists here in Montreal to see what’s next.
