Program Title: Ongoing Genocide and the Plight of Indigenous Peoples in Canada and Abroad
Description: This week's episode marks National Indigenous Peoples Day (in Canada). We therefore present interviews thematically linked with Indigenous struggles and resistance in Canada and around the world. Our first guest, Bruce Clark PhD, elaborates on his thesis that the legal system in Canada has been utilizing instruments to suppress Indigenous sovereignty in law and that it therefore is culpable in genocide. Our next guest, Reuben George, a representative of Tsleil Waututh Nation on the Canadian West Coast talks about his community's dissatisfaction with the Federal government's consultation process over the Trans-Mountain pipeline expansion. Our last guest, John Ahniwanika Schertow discusses significant struggles of Indigenous peoples in India and the Middle East.
