Weekend video: David Gunning – Sing it louder

KJIPUKTUK (Halifax) – You may well think that bad things happening to good people is basically what all the stories in the Nova Scotia Advocate are about. Welfare cuts, a polluting factory next door, people relying on food banks because minimum wage isn’t enough to survive on, that’s our kind of story.

True enough, but you’d be missing something pretty important, because the Nova Scotia Advocate is also all about people fighting back and speaking out.

The people we feature in our stories say this isn’t right, they organize, they rally, they research, and that’s a glorious thing.

So, dedicated to the courageous people we write about, this weekend’s video features a jewel of a song about fighting back (and winning) by the amazing Dave Gunning, who over the years has done more than his share in support of the fight to Clean Up the Pictou County Mill.

Check it out!

If you can, please support the Nova Scotia Advocate so that it can continue to cover issues such as poverty, racism, exclusion, workers’ rights and the environment in Nova Scotia. A pay wall is not an option since it would exclude many readers who don’t have any disposable income at all. We rely entirely on one-time donations and a tiny but mighty group of kindhearted monthly sustainers.

  1. The NS Advocate is “all about fighting back and speaking out.” That’s why I signed up. As a one-time student of organization theory, I had a wise teacher advise his class to always remember that “YOU ARE the organization.” Such a message of agency helps me, more than a little, through political adversity. (With political choices, of course, we role in social, economic, and cultural matters.)
