Defending the Land Dispatch: Dec. 7, 2012

From the December 7th 2012 edition of AW@L Radio - The show starts with a review of the GRIS newsletter from dec 4 which looks at resistance in Grassy Narrows and to pipelines,  then continues on the same vein with a read of an article about the Grassy Narrows 10 Year anniversary, then an interview from the John Bonnar audio blog with Judy Da Silva of Grassy Narrows.

Next up is an update from occupied chile where the Mapuche have been resisting state and corporate attempts to intimidate the indigenous into assimilation or death and right now two youth are on hunger strike for their freedom.  Read the Women's Coordinating Committee for a Free Wallmapu webpage for more updates on the situation.

We end the news show with a great update from Basics news about the Oshkimaadziig Anishnabek unity camp near midland in ontario. check out their website: for more info about the camp and to find out how to support it.

And we close out with a song from Subverso - Wenu Mapu

Thank you for reading this story...

More people are reading 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.
