#rbnews international show 01 December 2012 – Skouries special

On the #rbnews international show on 01 December 2012, our guest was @ypopto_mousi. We dicussed at length the issue of gold mining in northern Greece and in particular the Skouries forest in Halkidiki.

In tribute to the struggle of the people of Halkidiki, who are threatened by a massive environmental disaster should the mining project materialize, the music we chose to play this week is taken from a compilation of traditional songs produced by the Cultural Association of Ierissos in the 1960s.

You can listen to the podcast after the jump.
