Succos and an Anti-Colonial Thanksgiving

Chagim air-time proceeds. Following some harvest-y music, the show begins with a look at the succah as a check on opulence during a period of joy. In light of the succah’s symbol of the temporary nature of ownership, we explore some of what it means to live as a settler on stolen land. Joining us for this discussion is Matt – one of the organizers of the annual Anti-Colonial Thanksgiving Dinner in Guelph, ON, Turtle Island. Tune in for  informative words and thoughts. The show concludes with a lament for the loss of Marek Edelman – the last surviving leader of the Warsaw Ghetto resistance, Bund Member, committed diasporist, cardiologist, and a lasting anti-fascist voice in Poland. (Original Air Date: October 2009)

Music from Frank London’s Klezmer All-Stars, Klezmer Conservatory Band, and Testament.
