Hello, supporters of Talking Radical!
On this week’s show, I interview Dr. Baj Mukhopadhyay. He is a physician
and a central participant in the Canadian chapter of the People’s Health
Movement, a global network of activists, academics, health
professionals, and organizations who work to bring a health justice
perspective to a wide range of struggles. The Canadian chapter has been
particularly focused on supporting struggles against mining and other
extractive industries, both in Canada and in solidarity with communities
fighting Canadian companies abroad, and more recently has also been
laying groundwork to more effectively take up the connections between
colonialism and health. Mukhopadhyay talks with me about the origins of
the People’s Health Movement both globally and in this country, about
the network’s activities in recent years, about the strengths and limits
of mobilizing health discourse in the service of social change, and
about the group’s next steps.
