Two audio pieces: Abdelrazik, Canada and torture

leave a comment »

A quick post with two audio pieces about the case of Abousfian Abdelrazik, one in French, the other in English.

As I wrote earlier this week, I produced a piece for CKUT’s Le lendemain de la veille about Abdelrazik’s return home to Montreal. It features the voices of some of his supporters, Abdelrazik himself and his step-daughter Wafa Sahnine. And, of course, the music of the Chaotic Insurrection Ensemble who were out to liven up the evening.

The second piece is an interview by Samaa Elibyari and Stefan Christoff at CKUT radio. They spoke with Dr. Sherene Razack about Canada, torture, and the broader context of Abdelrazik’s ordeal.

If you’d like to either download or re-broadcast either piece, you can find them on Radio4All.
