Podcast # 7 – Oil and Water don’t mix: Kicking off week two of the negotiations

Check out our seventh podcast! Today, as negotiations kicked off for the second week, the Canadian youth led an action showing that “Oil and Water don’t mix.” We talk with Claude Généreux, from CUPE, the Canadian Union of Public Employees, about intersections between labour and environment (see our website for the full interview), and Erica and Amara posed a series of tough questions during our meeting this morning with Canada’s lead negotiator, digging into the backroom underbelly of climate negotiations that has recently been highlighted by Wikileaks.

You can hear more of our podcasts at our RSS feed, at rabble.ca, the Media Co-op, and Citizenshift! People have reported problems with getting the podcast on iTunes. An easy fix is to choose the “Advanced” tab, “Subscribe to Podcast,” and then paste this URL: http://feeds.feedburner.com/CYDPodcast.
