On Wild Idaho Rising Tide’s (WIRT) Monday, July 23, Climate Justice Forum radio program, we gratefully talk with Jesse Cardinal, downriver coordinator for Keepers of the Athabasca in Alberta and co-organizer of the Third Annual Tar Sands Healing Walk at Fort McMurray, and Greg Mack, lead activist of Northern Rockies Earth First! in Moscow, Idaho. Jesse discusses the August 4 spiritual journey and First Nations resistance to tar sands exploitation, and Greg recounts the first ever suspension of a hydraulic fracturing drilling operation in the U.S., in response to a July 8 EF! blockade in a Pennsylvania state forest. Originally broadcast on KRFP Radio Free Moscow between 7:30 and 9:30 pm PDT live at 92.5 FM and online, the show also covers regional and continent-wide climate activism news. Listen to an edited recording of the July 23 Climate Justice Forum posted in Radio4All and adopt WIRT as your KRFP DJ.
