Thursday’s Off The Hour takes a different focus each week of the month:
-No One is Illegal Radio
-La Voix des Immigrants
NO ONE IS ILLEGAL RADIO
No One Is Illegal Radio highlights the struggles of communities in resistance, with a focus on the self-determination struggles of Indigenous peoples, migrants, refugees and working class people of colour. No One Is Illegal Radio is in public confrontation with the Canadian state, organizing to fight against poverty, racism, police brutality, prisons, detentions and deportations, as well as opposing the displacement and genocide of Indigenous peoples on Turtle Island. No One Is Illegal Radio actively supports and highlights the organizing of allied groups, including Solidarity Across Borders and the Collectif de résistance antiraciste in Montreal, as well as No One Is Illegal groups across Canada.
Prison Radio seeks to confront the invisibility of prisons and prisoner struggle, by focusing on the roots of incarceration, policing, and criminalization, and by challenging our ideas about what prisons are and the people inside our jails.
Prison Radio is dedicated to programming that is directly collaborative with people who are currently incarcerated. This is in the interest of forging stronger ties between incarcerated and non-incarcerated people, ensuring that prisoners have direct control over their representation, and that our understandings of prisons be informed by those who live inside their walls.
Prison Radio is on air the second Thurday of every month from 5-6pm and the third Friday of every month from 11am-12pm.
