Rethinking Red Canada

Following up on the thrilling discussion with Barrington Walker on race and immigration in Canadian history, Radio Bandung re-imagines the history of resistance and the struggle for freedom broadly on the left in our local, national context. Ian McKay, distinguished professor of history at Queen's (http://www.queensu.ca/history/People/Faculty/McKay.htm) and author of an exciting new book, Rebels, Reds, Radicals: Rethinking Canada's Left History, delivers a true reconaissance report on the history of radical movements and the leftist politics in twentieth century Canada. From labor to love-in, what has linked these different groups and movements? What can we learn today about the struggles of the past to extend the "realm of freedom"? How have these Canadian battles been connected to global histories of resistance? Stand tall, Red Maple!
