TODAY’S SHOW Host: Irwin Oostindie @DutchPhoto
01:00 Introduction, local and international news, and weather. The #Ghomeshi trial and audio from yesterday’s street protests and more.
17:15 Jenn Meeropol on the #ExonerateEthel Rosenberg campaign to bring justice for her grandmother’s killing by the US government. A petition is asking President Obama to exonerate Ethel Rosenberg. Ethel and her husband Julius were executed during the anti-communist hysteria of the Cold War era. But Ethel was not a spy, and her execution was wrongful. Today, we face a similar climate of hatred which targets immigrants, Muslims, LGBTQI individuals and others. Jenn is the Executive Director of the Rosenberg Fund for Children.

We talk about G4S and the boycott Divestment Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel, and war crimes in Palestine. Plus we hear Naomi Klein‘s voice on why she supports the BDS movement. Regret we were unable to connect audio to Khalil Mansour this morning.
