Peter Bones: Babylon System Looking For Me

This week on No One Is Illegal -Toronto Radio we spoke with hip hop artist Peter Bones about the G20 and migrant justice. Bones recently released a track entitled “G20 Anthem” about his experiences with the G20 in Toronto, which included being featured in the police’s highly sensationalized “most wanted” list of G20 suspects. We discuss how his name was cleared and extend our solidarity to everyone still facing charges following the G20 mobilizations.

Art and Resistance

On Friday’s edition of No One Is Illegal – Toronto Radio we spoke with Sheila Hewlett about art and social movements, including the recently organized day of creative actions against Minister of Immigration Jason Kenney in Toronto.

Among many other things, Sheila designed our radio show logo.

I co-host a radio show on CKLN 88.1FM on the 1st and 3rd Friday every month. Our archive of past shows is accessible here and here.

Last night’s show was titled “Neoliberal Dress Rehearsals: Fighting Austerity and State Repression with OCAP”.

We spoke with John Clarke from the Ontario Coalition Against Poverty (OCAP) about post-G20 organizing in Toronto and the parallels between the criminalization of community organizers during the G20 and OCAP’s June 15, 2000 demonstration at Queen’s Park.
