CBC Radio Doc on Migrant Solidarity

 

Hey Rebel Beat people!

So as you can tell, this is not part of the Rebel Beat’s regular programming. Unfortunately I won’t be putting out an episode of the podcast in April. I’m traveling through western Canada, and don’t have much time to do any interviews or editing.

But I’m pretty excited to share this radio documentary with you that I just finished working on with my friend David from the Treyf podcast . The doc aired on CBC’s The Doc Project, and looks at the stories of refugees fleeing Donald Trump’s America, and the people who want to help them get into Canada. Hope you enjoy, and go here for more info:

The Rebel Beat will be back FULL FORCE in May with not one but two episodes! We’ll be doing our annual Mayday special, and then another episode later in the month to make up for the silence in April.

band Oi Polloi! They’ve been churning out 100% anti-fascist street-crust since 1981, and they show no signs of slowing down. Aaron caught up with them while they were in Montreal for Revolution Fest, and we’ll hear an in-depth conversation on everything from Brexit and Scotish independence, to protecting Gaelic and other Indigenous languages, to BASHING THE FASH!
