Twilight; though seemingly impossible a long six years ago, the twilight of the Bush reign now nears. Whether through impeachment, or a lame-duck idling away of this administration?s power, the end is nigh.

But, George W. Bush?s political death throes mean little to those thousands inhabiting America?s death rows. Yesterday was Mumia Abu Jamail?s birthday; to the man who has spent nearly three decades on death row, spuriously convicted of the murder of a policeman, a change of government means little.

Dave Lindorff is an award-winning investigative journalist, author, and founding member of the National Writer?s Union. His books include: ?Killing Time: An Investigation into the Death Row Case of Mumia Abu-Jamal,? ?Marketplace Medicine: The Rise of the For Profit Hospital Chains,? and the newly released, ?This Can?t be Happening!: Resisting the Disintegration of American Democracy.?

Dave Lindorff and the dark heart of American justice in the first half.

And; will they stay out, or will they go back in?

Just months after their much media ballyhoo-ed departure from the Gaza Strip, Israel?s new Prime Minister now says a re-occupation of the Strip is a distinct possibility. For Palestinians in Gaza however, the occupation didn?t end when the settlers re-settled in the West Bank.

Jon Elmer is a Halifax-based, freelance journalist, and publisher of the web news site, From Occupied Palestine.org. He?s lived, and reported from, Occupied Palestine, and will join Gorilla Radio again today.

In the second half, Jon Elmer and a Palestinian re-occupation?

And; Janine Bandcroft will be here to bring us up to speed with all that?s good to do in and around Victoria this week.

But first, Dave Lindorff and an American twilight?s last gleaming.
