Hiroshima Peace Garden in Toronto + Stop Cop-violence Rally. Former Prime Minister of Rwanda to return

Featured Guest(s):
Ted Schmidt, Jacob Leibovitch

We live in a world of nuclear weapons, and the people of Hiroshima and Nagasaki can tell us the most about what they can do. For thirty years, those days of infamy have been commemorated on August 6-9th. Ted Schmidt tells us about Toronto's special event this year, and also efforts to revitalize the role of the Catholic church in social justice.

Jacob Leibovitch reports live on the scene from a protest against the police shooting of Sammy Yatim. Phil also describes upcoming events, including one related to "La Question" - Henri Alleg's account of his own torture by France in Algeria.

The former Prime Minister of Rwanda, Faustin Twagiramungu, has announced his intention to return to the country - we find out why.

Twagiramungu lived through the grim violence of 1994 Rwanda and became Prime Minister of the new government. He soon found that the RPF strongman Paul Kagame had no intention of establishing a multiparty democracy or permitting any significant opposition. Twagiramungu, out of concern for his personal safety, went into exile, but has now made the decision to return to Rwanda and resume the fight for justice and democracy.

Miguel San Vicente

Miguel San Vicente, of A Different Book List, talks to Phil, Jacob Leibovitch and Steve Reimer about his recent trip to Venezuela. Miguel witnessed the inspiring victory of President Hugo Chavez in the August 15 referendum. Miguel pointed out the extent of popular support for Chavez - strong majorities in 8 elections in the last 5 years - despite which the opposition and the United States still try to portray him as illegitimate. He said you only needed to look up to the barrios surrounding Caracas to see houses completely painted in Chavez red and slogans supporting the President. Popular music supporting Chavez was also widespread.

Chavez' victory came despite a virulent campaign against him by the two major newspapers and all the private tv stations. Much of the anti-Chavez opposition has been sponsored by the US through such institutions as the National Endowment for Democracy. Reforms in health, education, land and jobs are priorities for the Chavez government and results are already evident. Miguel noted that job creation projects have meant that the formerly filthy streets of Caracas are now cleaner than the streets of Toronto. Medical care is now much more accessible to the poor, thanks in part to the 10,000 Cuban doctors in Venezuela and Cuban scholarships for Venezuelan medical students.
