ICYMI: November 5-11
What I produced and consumed this week.
In the Progress Report, Duncan Kinney and I covered the outrageous arrest of a pro-Palestine march organizer in Calgary, who was charged with a hate crime for chanting, From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.
For Jacobin, I wrote about Alberta Premier Danielle Smith’s efforts to justify keeping the oil flowing by casting doubt on any projections of future oil demand that aren’t industry-supported.
In Alberta Native News, I covered representatives of the the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate testifying before the Canadian Senate Committee on Indigenous Issues about residential school records that have yet to be submitted to the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation.
I went on Burt Cohen’s Keeping Democracy Alive podcast to discuss last week’s article on Rabbi Arik Ascherman’s efforts to protect Palestinians in the West Bank from extremist Israeli settler violence, which the great folks at Counterpunch were kind enough to republish.
