This is the 2015 GroundWire Year in Review episode, where we highlight some of the most significant news stories covered by GroundWire this past year

Features:

Resistance to environmental degradation was especially heightened in 2015, and GroundWire was there to cover local movements, with a focus on Indigenous perspectives.

We take a listen back to GroundWire's coverage of grassroots organizing in memorial of missing and murdered Indigenous women.

Canada's Black Lives Matter movements brought national attention to state-sanctioned violence against black people and fights ingrained anti-Black racism in our societies.

Community Radio Report:

And finally a look back at developments at Canadian campus and community radio stations in 2015

Music in this episode was by Lisean Sasha Henry

We also thank Mat Wilush, Carly Forbes, Omme-Salma Rahemtullah and Ophira Horwitz.
