Cuba and its 60 years of resistance to US Imperialism

Latin Waves host Sylvia Richardson speaks with journalist Arnold August about the legacy of empire.

Cuba alone has resiliently stood against the 60+ years of US Blockade, an act denounced by the world in countless calls at the United Nations council to lift the embargo on Cuba. Arnold takes us back to 1959 when the story we are living now began

Uprisings In Columbia

Latin Waves host Sylvia Richardson speaks with Common Frontiers director Raul Burbano, about the up rising in Colombia. From April 28 to May 8, the violent actions of the state security forces resulted in the death of least 47 people, the arbitrary detention of 963 people, 28 victims of
eye-related injuries, and 12 victims of sexual violence. In total, they registered 1,876 cases of police violence.  Yet despite the violence people kept coming out in defiance of the latest austerity package introduce by president Duque.  Colombia has been known for decades, as the epicentre for violence against indigenous movements and workers.  A country with seven USA military bases, intimidating their neighbours and its local population. Raul reminds us that revolution is still a dance for people in Latin America, as people correct the history of colonization and conquest of America as a story of unceasing dignity.  Not a day has gone without rebellion to injustice, repression and exploitation.

Global solidarity movement for Palestinians

Latin Waves host Sylvia Richardson speaks with Yves Engler author of the Black Book of Canadian Foreign Policy.

Yves Engler speaks of the global solidarity movement for Palestinians, and the lessons in resistance. Why solidarity matters and what is lost when fail to speak and act
against imperialist aggression,
