 Radio BASICS (CHRY 105.50 FM Toronto)  
Headline news on death of Jamaican migrant workers in Owen Sound; hotel workers protest in Toronto; massacre of migrant workers by drug cartels in Mexico; and Nepal Maoist leader Kiran calling for "fresh people's revolt".

For our feature interview, we talk to Salma Al-Nadhir and Alok Premjee about this past weekend's 3rd Annual J4A Ball Tourny against Police Brutality.

Later in the show, we play the audio from Ken Loach's film September 11 - that is, Chile, 1973, not USA, 2001.
