Divine Intervention

[2016-07-27]
with Brade Stanton and the Divas
Here's your Pride 2016 Culture Club, curated this week by Brade Stanton, bringing you a little history, music and of course: Divine Intervention.

Tune in for incredible music from (and history of) a longstanding figure in gay culture - the Diva. Brade connects his identity as a gay man raised in the 1970s in a suburban household to the glamour and power of these female, often straight, singers/performers.

Says Brade, "I relate all of this cultural iconography to the way being gay, as a subculture itself gets transmitted. And by that I mean gay people, we were not born and raised in gay families and yet—through a chain of personal connections and identification and cultural osmosis—we get connected to a gay subculture that has seized on these iconic figures hidden in plain sight and used them to consolidate a distinct community identity."

"A Diva is female version of a hustla."- Beyoncé

About the documentaries:

The Long Journey Home: Nati Garcia’s childhood was marked by questions. The daughter of Guatemalan refugees didn’t know where her parents came from or why they fled. In fact, they barely spoke. So when she was sexually assaulted at the age of eight, she didn’t know who to talk to. This documentary explores what Nati went through to heal and discover her own past.

About Carlos and Aurora: Carlos Tello is a freelance multimedia journalist based in Vancouver. His work has been featured in, among other publications, the Toronto Star, Vancouver Observer and the Vancouver Sun. He is interested in arts and culture, human rights, social justice, Latin American issues, and everything related to his home country, Peru. | Aurora Tejeida is a multimedia journalist based in Vancouver whose work has appeared in Vice, The Tyee, and the Toronto Star. Her main areas of interest are refugee and migrant rights, culture, and social justice.

A Step Towards Inclusion: Cambodia is one of the most heavily land mined countries in the world -¬ still with about millions of pieces of unexploded ordnance and landmines in existence. According to the HALO Trust, “over 64,000 landmine casualties have been recorded in Cambodia since 1979, and with over 25,000 amputees Cambodia has the highest ratio per capita in the world. Accidents occur often. Cambodians with these injuries are often disregarded as viable in a culture that fears, misunderstands and ignores their gifts and abilities. Towards Inclusion follows one man, Mean Sokhum, a guide at the war museum in Siem Reap, Cambodia, and his fight for work, respect and dignity as a person with a landmine injury .

About David: David Peck is an academic, speaker and social change consultant from the Toronto area, advocating for health, literacy, and restorative justice both nationally and internationally. He is the producer and host of the Face2Face podcast, and has written for a number of publications including the Huffington Post.

The Crimes of Jiang Zemin: This documentary by Hershy He and Kerry Foster takes look at a deeply stirring account of three women who became victims of the persecution of Falun Gong in China: How their health and moral character improved through practice, how they were severely tortured for their belief, and how they escaped to Canada and are now pursuing justice in the wave of 200,000 lawsuits that have been filed against Jiang Zemin, the former leader of the Chinese Communist Party who initiated the genocide of Falun Gong.

Part 3. Confronting her torturers.
Reprise of a popular WINGS series, The Second Coming of Joan of Arc is adapted from a live performance of the multi-award-winning one-woman play by Carolyn Gage, in which Joan of Arc analyzes her successes and also her naivete in trusting a patriarchy that took what she gave them then cast her aside and finally threw her to the wolves. When English torturers force her to conform to their idea of femininity, Joan defies them, regaining her identity and dignity, but losing her life.

Canada Syndrome: Good People Supporting Mass Internment, War, and Genocide

[2016-06-08]
A Conversation with anti-war activist Richard Sanders
From the Global Research News Hour May 13, 2016
hosted by Michael Welsh
http://www.globalresearch.ca/theme/global-research-news-hour

Throughout history, decent, progressive-minded Canadians with humanitarian instincts have provided tacit, if not overt support for State violence. These have included genocidal policies against the Indigenous population of the country, the internment of thousands of Eastern European migrants in slave labour camps, and imperial aggression in South Africa, Haiti, and Libya.

Ottawa based radical and anti-war activist Richard Sanders is convinced that the bulk of the public have become captives of a psychosis springing from national narratives of Canadian exceptionalism. These narratives blind us to the violence being perpetrated against our fellow humans in the service of elite interests, even convincing us these actions are right and good.

The “Canada Syndrome,” as he calls it, is the subject of this feature length interview. It includes a discussion of the famous social gospel and how revered figures like J.S. Woodsworth displayed highly racist and xenophobic sentiments and ironically served to reinforce the authority of corporate elites.
