This podcast features an update about the murder of a community organizer in Oaxaca who had been spearheading anti-mining activities at a mine owned by Canada's Fortuna Silver. While Australia has passed new laws which may lead to the creation of the country's first permanent nuclear waste dump on Indigenous lands, New Zealand's government has been cracking down on Indigenous Sovereigntists and solidarity activists -- we play a piece from the @stimulator who was down south speaking to Urewera warriors targeted in "anti-terror" raids and prosecution.
We finish the show off with an interview with AW@L friend and amazing journalist @JesseFreeston conducted by CKUT's morning after program about his upcoming (and recently fully funded) documentary "Resistencia" (http://www.indiegogo.com/Resistencia-1) - which looks into plantation occupations in Honduras after the 2009 coup which overthrew the democratically elected president of the country (http://montreal.mediacoop.ca/audio/ckuts-morning-after-repression-and-re...).

Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
