CKUW FunDrive 2019. Fund-raiser for Global Research News Hour

“In a time of universal deceit — telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” 

The sentence above, which typically cites George Orwell as the source, serves equally well as a motto for community radio journalism at its best.

Unfiltered by corporate, government or other interests, radio stations that derive their revenue from listeners and supporters in their communities are free to challenge the powerful, when other media will not.

The Global Research News Hour struggles week after week to shine light on state and corporate propaganda, particularly that which furnishes a pre-text for war. Thus truth-telling becomes a necessary part of the resistance to oppression disguised as ‘humanitarian interventions’ or ‘self-defence.’

Taking one week a year to raise funds from the community has become a necessary part of community radio. This second week of February is the time selected for CKUW 95.9FM in Winnipeg, host to the Global Research News Hour, to petition listeners for support.

This week, we are posting the live show which aired on February 15th, and included interviews with colleagues both past and present. They include fellow programmer and sometime Global Research News Hour collaborator Scott Price, fellow programmer Kent Davies, former CKUW News Director Geoffrey Young, and former CKUW Program Director Robin Eriksson. All make the case for supporting independent journalism.

The 2019 drive ended on February 15th. Please do not phone the number announced during the program, but donate online at
