John Laughland, Anthony Fenton
Phil interviews John Laughland, a journalist with the Guardian and a member of the British Helsinki Human Rights Group, about current events in Ukraine. Laughland talks about the bias of mainstream media and argues that the question of 'electoral fraud' is a smokescreen for a broader agenda - the desire of the US to rip Ukraine from Russian influence as part of the goal of gaining control of Russian oil reserves. It is "world geopolitics at the very highest level" in which the so-called 'independent observers' and NGO's promote the fairy-tale of a 'popular uprising' that is actually purchased by Western powers.
Phil also talks with BC journalist Anthony Fenton of the Dominion paper. Fenton exposes Canada's role in supporting the US-sponsored coup against Haiti's popularly elected President Aristide, and in contributing to the continuing illegal occupation of Haiti. Fenton talks about the role of the RCMP in providing training and direction to Haitian police who are conducting a virtual extermination campaign against supporters of Aristide.
