CKUT Radio’s “Off the Hour” presents:: Radio Sanctuary 4 :: The Hour of Power ::

Tune In to the next Radio Sanctuary December 15th 5-6pm E.S.T
An hour of power with Kader live from the St-Gabriel’s Church,
Point-St-Charles (MONTREAL)
90,3 FM in Montreal —

On Friday November17th from 5-6pm CKUT and Kader broadcasted the third installment of RADIO SANCTUARY, a live hour-long remote broadcast hosted by Abdelkader Belaouni.

Abdelkader Belaouni (“Kader” to his friends) is a refugee from Algeria who
came to Montreal via the USA. Kader is in sanctuary inside the
St-Gabriel’s Catholic Church in his community of Point St-Charles — a
mixed French-English poor working class neighborhood of Montreal, with a
long history of community mobilization.

Kader defied an order to be deported on January 5, 2006, and has remained
in sanctuary ever since.

CKUT is a community radio station proudly embedded in movements for social
justice, particularly those of migrants in Montreal. Since Kader cannot
leave the church, CKUT radio will join him inside the sanctuary of
St-Gabriel’s Church, in the heart of Point St-Charles.

Join us for this bilingual (English and French) program with perspectives
on poverty, migration in the neighborhood of Point St. Charles and
throughout Montreal.
