Listen to the entire program

shock doctrineThe leaders of the Group of 20 countries or G20 met in Toronto last week to adopt what they call austerity measures in response to the global financial crisis. Discussions focused around deficit reduction rather than relief for ordinary citizens. After intense lobbying by the financial sector, the governments meeting in Toronto postponed plans for tough banking regulations. G20 leaders also failed to tackle climate change issues. Meanwhile, Canadians and others from all over the world sent a message to G 20 leaders organizing, and demonstrating in the streets. Police presence was severe and more than 900 protesters were arrested. On June 25th thousands of activists gathered at Massey Hall in Toronto for a rousing event featuring music and speakers like Naomi Klein, Vandana Shiva, Maude Barlow, and our very own Amy Goodman. The event was called Shout Out for Global Justice and today we’d like to offer you a DVD copy of the amazing speeches, a snapshot of the times we live in, and the resistance to power.
