USA's Military Empire

Welcome to Gorilla Radio, recorded May 3rd, 2023

A generation in to the communications revolution begun by the internet, governments around the World are busy devising ways to limit, throttle, or eradicate entirely the ability of the citizenry to freely share their opinions, or express political dissent. And, Canada is no exception.

Last week, Bill C-11 received ratification from the Senate, despite the government rejecting crucial amendment proposals put forward by that body.

Rosa Addario is a Canadian telecommunications technology researcher. She’s currently Communications Manager at OpenMedia, a quote, “community-driven organization [working] to keep the Internet open, affordable, and surveillance-free“.

And; the current conflict in Ukraine is proving to be the engine of a technological acceleration in both the methods and means of prosecuting war. Fortunately, those working for peace are too engaging new strategies and technologies to help bring the insanity of this, and the next, war to a halt.

Kathy Kelly is a long-time peace and justice activist, essayist, author, and recipient of numerous awards for her peace service, including multiple nominations for the Nobel Peace prize. These days she’s serving as Board President at World BEYOND War, where among other things, she’s busy co-coordinating the November 2023 Merchants of Death War Crimes Tribunal.

Kathy’s many articles appear at sites across the web, including WorldBEYONDWar.org, where I found her recent piece, ‘To End All Wars, Close All Bases‘.

  1. Very good that ths map is shown. I was in Ecuador in 2007 and we formed a global network against US military bases. We surrounded MANTA US ´largest base in Latinamerika It was closed under Rafael Correa but probably opened again under his successor Lenin Moreno I have two important books which I recommend: BASE NATION by professor David Vine, 2015 and The Bases of Empire, 2009, by professor Catherine Lutz. Unfortunately it doens´t cover all radars insatle by the US around te world and essential for US warfare.Im thinking of Pine Gap in Australia,Waihopay in NZ and the bigegs of them all Menwith Hill in Britain. In the North of Norway there is a huge radarbase..Vardö abse which covers the entire Russian continent and in Sweden Esrange,the worlds bigges tdownloading station from satelites.
