From Embers: New Content in September 2019

Submitted by From Embers

From Embers is a regular anarchist podcast produced in Kingston, Ontario. We produce a few episodes each month about actions and projects going on in so-called Canada that inspire us, or about topics that we think will be relevant to anarchists living north of the border. We are a proud member of the Channel Zero Anarchist Podcast Network.

This month we produced three original episodes:

September 5th: The Future of Policing in Canada

An interview with Nathan Munn, a freelance journalist based in Montreal. Nathan has written several investigative pieces for VICE looking at the “Hub Model” of community policing, which has been quietly rolling out across the country, and especially in Saskatchewan and Ontario, over the past 5 years.

September 11th: Is FM Radio Still Relevant? Radio, Community Spaces and Knowing The Land

An interview with Byron, host of To Know The Land, a radio show on Guelph’s CFRU 93.3. We talk about why radio is cool, and I pick Byron’s brain about place, space and knowing the land we stand on.

September 26th: Mauna Kea and the Hawaiian Movement

Mauna Kea is the tallest mountain in the world measured from its oceanic base and one of the most sacred sites for spiritual Hawaiians. A consortium of government and university scientists from Canada, the United States, Japan, China and India have been trying to build the Thirty Metre Telescope on its summit for nearly a decade, coming up against fierce opposition from native Hawaiians every step of the way. Things heated up again this summer as TMT planned to start construction for the second time. In response, land protectors established a resistance camp on the mountain. After two and a half months and dozens of arrests, the camp is still standing and a mass movement has emerged to defend the mountain. We caught up with Pua’ena Ahn, who is part of the Hawaiian movement and currently active to protect Mauna Kea.
