 Mumia Abu Jamal, Abimanyu Singam
 Radio BASICS (CHRY 105.50 FM Toronto)  
 Attribution Non-commercial No Derivatives (by-nc-nd) 
In this show, on the eve of the trial that may send Mumia Abu Jamal back to death row, we review his case, listen to some of his most recent radio commentaries, and play some musical tributes to the brother we all know to be innocent.

Also in this show, Radio Basics host Keerthy interviews lawyer Abimanyu Singam from the Tamil community on Bill C-49, the so-called “Human Smuggling” Bill that was introduced into Parliament on October 21, which many recognize to be an attack on refugees.
