Latin Waves : interviews author activist Yves Engler, Segment 1

3 months 2 weeks ago
Yves Engler (born 1979) is a Montreal writer and political activist. In addition to seven published books, Engler’s writings have appeared in the alternative press and in mainstream publications such as The Globe and Mail, Toronto Star, Ottawa Citizen and Ecologist. His The Black Book of Canadian Foreign Policy book was on a short list for the Quebec Writers’ Federation Mavis Gallant Prize for Non-Fiction along with two other books. Host Sylvia Richardson speaks to Yves about Canadian foreign policy and the hypocrisy of our government putting sanctions on countries like Venezuela while excusing gross human rights violations in the coup governments of Honduras and Haiti, how Canadians should be paying attention to agreements like NAFTA and how those trade agreements are undemocratic and give corporations to much power over our lives, environment and working conditions. How as progressive we should use our independent judgement on agreements like NAFTA and not just support them because Trump doesn’t like them.

The Alembic Files: The Anti-Federalists - Part Ten, Segment 1

3 months 2 weeks ago
In Letter no. 10, Centinel asserts that when the people are informed by an unfettered press about the system of government constructed by the new Constitution, they reject it out of hand. He explains the skullduggery of the Framers and claims that they are the true enemy of the young America. He insists that America, under the Articles of Confederation, warts and all, is a better plan for the nation. Centinel avers that its issues can be resolved with persistence and deliberation. Centinel is confident that his fellow citizens are not being fooled by the glitter put forth by the Federalists.
