“Idle No More” and the XL Pipeline

4 Jan

idlenomoreLast night on “Banned in Boston” we discussed connections between “Idle No More” (a protest movement originating among the First Nations, Metis and Inuit peoples of Canada) and the ongoing actions taking place to impede the progress of the XL Pipeline. 

We also talked to someone in Texas who is involved with the pipeline resistance there. He reports on the two brave people who attempted to position themselves in trees yesterday in order to stop the pipeline’s advance.

A direct link to the episode is here.  “Banned in Boston,” an online radio show sponsored by Occupy Boston, broadcasts live every Thursday 8 pm (East Coast time) from the studios of UNregular Radio near Downtown Crossing.
