Turns out, even more canadian NGO’s are willing to suck on the industrial-colonial straw as, World University Service Canada (WUSC), World Vision Canada, and Plan Canada team up with mining Rio Tinto Alcan, Barrick Gold, and IAMGOLD, and CIDA to help destroy communities and Indigenous cultures around the world. We introduce a piece from the dominion (Foreign Aid to Mining Firms: CIDA teams up with NGOs to do development work at mine sites | The Dominion ) which exposes these travesties.

We also look at Harper’s gutting of environment canada in an effort to slow climate change, a comment from David Suzuki, and an urge from the UN on a meat free diet. A little more news and some good tunes (

Show Notes (from june 2010, first posted june 26th 2010):

A discussion during the KW Peoples Summit,

We will explore the revolutionary context of the ministry of Jesus by giving historical perspective, deflating a few common misconceptions and celebrating the one who overturned the tables of the moneychangers. In viewing the New Testament as world-creating, empire eroding storytelling we hope to shine a light on actions and perspectives taught by Jesus, that can be used today, to disarm the powers.

Build your skills with this holistic approach to intentional world changing.

King James would hate this workshop. Safe and open to anyone, its revolutionary simplicity!
