CKUT spoke recently with independent journalist and activist Dan Kellar, who also works with the anti-war group AW@L in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario. Kellar was arrested by the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) last thursday for posting information about undercover police agents on his blog, PeaceCulture.org. CKUT's Aaron Lakoff spoke with Kellar on the phone about the arrest, undercover police and police repression, and media freedoms. Kellar also added that despite the fact that the blog post has been taken down due to his bail conditions, people might still be able to see the post using Google cache. Officers involved in the case have threatened to arrest others, independent journalists included, who repost the original blog post.
