Doug Smith is a Montreal- based Palestine solidarity activist and a member of Tadamon!. Tadamon is a Montreal-based collective which works in solidarity with struggles for self-determination, equality and justice in the ‘Middle East’ and in diaspora communities in Montreal and beyond.

In this interview Doug will be talking to us about Tadamon and the different activities the group organises. He will explain how you can volunteer within the group and contribute to its different activities. He will also discuss a program called Cure (Community-University Research Exchange). CURE is a Qpirg initiative that facilitates research collaborations between university students and grassroots community groups which include Tadamon. Doug will talk about the different researches Tadamon is involved in within the CURE framework and how students can get involved in these researches in exchange for credits. We will finally discuss why Israeli universities like Technion should be boycotted by our Canadian universities as part of the academic boycott.




Throughout the month of August, CKUT brings you “The Palestine Solidarity Sessions”, an in-depth series focusing on the issue of Palestine, and what can be done. Each segment will feature voices of Palestinians and their supporters throughout the world calling for a just peace – voices that are all too often left out of the mainstream media debate.

This new series underlines the importance of the work we are doing as independent community journalists to engage in truth-telling.  Its main aim is to give our listeners tools to support the Palestinians in their struggle, to get involved in the Palestine-solidarity movement and to help create awareness about the Palestinian plight.

Tune in on CKUT, 90.3 FM in Montreal, or online at during the following shows:
The Morning Ater, Tuesdays 7am
