Smash the State Report: Indigenous resistance and Quebec student strike| May 7, 2012
Friday April 27, 2012 - This Smash the State Report starts off with info on the re-opening of the abortion debate in Canada, then jumps into the Quebec student strike with a critique from Stefan Christoff of mainstream coverage , before an update of the April 28th  Walk for Peace Respect and Friendship . We also introduce the discuss the Yinka-Dene alliance, their Freedom Train, and the resistance to the Northern Gateway Pipeline, look into the crackdown on Dr. Seuss in B.C. , the continuing censorship of federal government environmental scientists , and the gutting of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act .
We then look at the the attack on Indigenous in the Amazon  by loggers, the gathering of 40,000 Norwegians against fascist racism , then two stories on Canada's increasingly racist and restrictive immigration and refugee system. The first is the story of a Mexican refugee claimant who was deported to Mexico from Canada last year and later murdered . The second is of the targetting of Roma refugee  claimants from so-called "safe countries" in Europe for rejection.
Finally, we discuss the Ontario NDP saving the provincial budget by selling out the poor, federal bureaucrats living in luxury , and we finish with a tie for the "taze of the week" between the arrest of a 6 year old at school, and a search of a 4 year old at an airport for hugging her mom.
And this show finishes up with the announcement of Julian Ichim's $4-million lawsuit against the Toronto police and others for the political policing undertaken against anti-poverty, anti-capitalist, and anti-G20 organisers, including himself. Check http://julianichim.wordpress.com  for more info
