Unity of feeling or action on a common interest
As long-time listeners know well, this isn't the first time our podcast has looked at long-standing Wet'suwet'en efforts to block outside incursions into their territory. Indeed, last August's double episode, 'Resource Resistance,' situated their struggle at its core. This time ‘round, we invite on a new perspective regarding recent events on the ground as well as the bigger political and economic picture. A lawyer from the Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation, Kris Statnyk works exclusively with Indigenous peoples, practicing in the area of Aboriginal law. He shares his thoughts on this latest paramilitary raid on Wet'suweten land protectors—the RCMP's third in roughly three years—as well as his eyewitness account of solidarity actions in neighbouring Gitxsan territory. // CREDITS: Our theme is 'nesting' by birocratic.
Activist blogger Emma Jane talks about missing and murdered indigenous women and the upcoming debut of the Law Ain't Order Podcast. Aunty Fa and Matt discuss both the overwhelm and the empowerment of the commune. The commies play Cthulhu: Death May Die.

Stephanie and Michael welcome three guests this week on Nonviolence Radio. First, they talk to Katherine Hughes-Fraitekh and Steve Chase about their work together in Solidarity 2020 and Beyond. Responding to the isolation and suffering caused by COVID, Solidarity 2020 and Beyond offers hope and support to grassroots activists and organizations, providing them opportunities to network, to learn from each other and to collaborate through webinars and trainings. Solidarity 2020 and Beyond draws on the power inherent in sharing experiences and using them to educate and increase solidarity amongst all those who are striving — nonviolently — to bring about change for good, wherever in the world they may be. …what we’re trying to do is to be driven by the grassroots activists, extremely flexible to respond to their needs, and not create an organization but realize there are amazing groups out there – Beautiful Trouble, ICNC, the Einstein Institute, Nonviolent Peaceforce, Metta Center, Waging Nonviolence, all the groups that are working on these issues. And African Youth Movement, Africans Rising – we’re very closely connected with them. And just trying to help bring groups together and find ways to do critical learning, research, and really spread the knowledge both to people that are doing the work on the ground as people learn from each other. …for the vast majority of people in the world that are not directly involved, but may be very hopeless right now, letting them know these amazing things are happening, and these amazing courageous people are out there changing the world for the better. It's not time to give up hope, but really to have a vision for a better future. And that is possible. Katherine Hughes-Fraitekh The inspiring conversation with Katherine and Steve is followed by an equally powerful discussion with Mubarak Elamin, a Sudanese activist supporting the movement in Sudan. Mubarak talks about the astounding strength and courage of the Sudanes people, their determination to stand up for what they need, often risking their lives, working for peace and change: We’re actually learning from the streets of Sudan. It's amazing, the creativity and how people are committed to – first, they're committed to nonviolence and peaceful protest – peaceful actions. And the second thing they are doing also, organizing. And the third thing they are doing is also being really media savvy… And they just demonstrate that day in and day out. They're speaking about, “We’re not out for bread. We're not out for lower prices of gas. We’re out for our own freedom and to bring about some other high-level values to our life and to our people.” And they're so determined to do that. So, it's just really like when you see these, read these stories, it's just heartfelt. The stories that all of these kids – I will call them heroes and warriors in a way or the other. Mubarak Elamin From all three guests this week, we see the power that comes when we actively listen to and connect […] The post How Listening to Experiences Builds Power appeared first on Metta Center.
What does it mean for those working within academia to become scholar-activists—going beyond working to rise within the ranks of educational institutions to engage with and help enact change within their communities? And why is maintaining an internationalist lens critical for those wanting to support Indigenous rights, sovereignty, and liberation? In this episode, we welcome Melanie Yazzie Ph.D., a citizen of the Navajo Nation. She is Assistant Professor of Native American Studies and American Studies at the University of New Mexico. She specializes in Navajo/American Indian history, political ecology, Indigenous feminist and queer studies, and theories of policing and the state. She organizes with The Red Nation, and she is the author of Red Nation Rising: From Bordertown Violence to Native Liberation.

Dr. Linwood Tauheed, associate professor of economics at the University of Missouri- Kansas City, joins us to discuss domestic politics. A record 4.4 million Americans quit their jobs in September as inflation skyrockets and investors turn to gold. Also, some businesses are taking advantage of inflation to increase profits.Mark Sleboda, Moscow-based international relations security analyst, joins us to discuss Eastern Europe. Despite absurd accusations of fueling the Belarusian border crisis, the Russian government is working to help resolve the issue. Also, NATO's aggressive military actions near Russia's border are fueling a potential crisis with the US client state of Ukraine. Finian Cunningham has written a piece in which he outlines a number of non-military options that the Eurasian power could choose to retaliate.Yolian Ogdu, member of the Black Alliance for Peace and Horn of Africa Pan-Africans for Liberation and Solidarity, joins us to discuss Ethiopia. There is significant speculation that the US empire pushed the TPLF to launch their latest attack in Ethiopia. It is believed that US/EU operatives are pushing this war to overthrow the democratically elected government of Abiy Ahmed.Dan Lazare, author and investigative journalist and author of "America's Undeclared War," joins us to discuss President Biden and Vice President Harris's polling data. President Biden's infrastructure bill success seems to have done little to counteract the inflation crisis as his approval ratings continue on a swift downward trajectory. Also, Vice President Kamala Harris continues to burden the administration with historically low approval ratings.Laith Marouf, broadcaster and journalist based in Beirut, joins us to discuss the Middle East. A US airstrike in Syria is creating a considerable buzz as information surfaces that the military worked to cover up the deaths of over 60 women and children at their hands. Also, Houthi fighters are enjoying more success as the critical port city of Hodeida falls under their control. John Burris, civil rights attorney, joins us to discuss the Kyle Rittenhouse trial. Nerves are on edge, and the National Guard stands by for possible unrest in Minnesota as closing arguments of the case are made.K. J. Noh, peace activist, writer, and teacher, joins us to discuss China. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken recently spoke with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi in anticipation of a scheduled virtual meeting between the leaders of the two world powers. Also, China has some interesting options for addressing climate change that may be valuable for Western powers to consider joining or imitating.Margaret Kimberly, editor and senior columnist at Black Agenda Report, joins us to discuss Cuba. The latest ham-handed US regime change plan for Cuba is scheduled to commence today, as CIA-sponsored protests have been pushed by deep state operatives in the tech giants of social media.
In this episode, Niki interviews Manolo De Los Santos, a Caribbean popular educator and the two discuss the November 15th protests in Cuba, what narratives we should be mindful of in hopes of supporting the lives of Cuban people on the island, and the dangers of advocating for US intervention. Manolo is the co-executive director of The People's Forum in NYC.★ Support this podcast on Patreon ★
What can the faith of the migrant teach us about a living theology? The resilience and communal outlook of immigrants offers a way of seeing human relationships—political, social, religious—as porous and permeable, meant to encounter God in the other, welcoming each other in love and hospitality. Francisco Lozada (Brite Divinity School) joins Evan Rosa to reflect on his experiences at U.S.-Mexico borderlands, leading travel seminars and teaching about immigration and justice from a theological framework—they discuss the influence of liberation theology's guiding principle of the preferential option for the poor, the centrality of history in understanding immigration, the problem of American xenophobia, and the racialization of U.S. immigration policy.This episode was made possible in part by the generous support of the Tyndale House Foundation. For more information, visit tyndale.foundation."Building bridges, not walls.""God doesn't see borders. In my theological thinking, I don't imagine a God or theologize a God asking, "show me your papers." God's asking different questions: Did you feed me, did you give me something to drink, did you clothe me?During this trip to Nogales, we came across a group of students and they were celebrating mass. We were walking right by them. We were on the U.S. side, they were on the Mexican side, and they asked, do we want to celebrate mass there? And what I see that moment is, that mass, that prayer was a form or expression of resistance, of pushing back there. There are no borders between us.Prayer doesn't see borders. Faith doesn't see borders. That's the power religion. I think the power of theology, the power of prayer, is that it works—not always, but in its true sense—it works to build bridges, not walls." (Francisco Lozada, from the interview)Introduction (Evan Rosa)Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,With conquering limbs astride from land to land;Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall standA mighty woman with a torch, whose flameIs the imprisoned lightning, and her nameMother of Exiles. From her beacon-handGlows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes commandThe air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries sheWith silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”"The New Colossus" Emma Lazarus, 1883The generous spirit, the welcome for the wandering, taking in the homeless stranger, the refugee—these words that inscribe the Statue of Liberty offer a hopeful image of an America with open arms, a beacon of hospitality and safety in a dangerous world. How do we square this symbol of welcoming freedom with the reality of immigration policy today? Detention centers crowded with young children separated from their families, exploitation of undocumented migrants for agricultural labor, billions of dollars spent on "the wall," the false nativism of fair-skinned European-American immigrants.Alongside the ideals of The New Colossus embracing the "tired, poor, huddled masses," a history of racial purity, exclusion, xenophobia, and fear can be seen in immigration policy, from the Chinese Exclusion Act just four years before the dedication of Lady Liberty, to the discriminatory immigration quotas of the Johnson-Reed Act in 1924, all the way up to the Muslim Travel Ban of 2017.In the spring of 2018, approximately 5,500 children were separated from their families by Trump's zero tolerance policy. 1,700 children still live in detention centers, 3 years later.But how does this balance with the rights of a nation to enforce and manage its political borders? How should those borders be enforced justly? How should we prioritize national security and cultural integrity with the call to welcome the tempest-tost stranger through our "golden doors"?Well, beyond the dizzying political and moral questions that we have with us always, Francisco Lozada is thinking theologically about immigration and the migrant experience. He is the Charles Fischer Catholic Professor of New Testament and Latinx Studies at Brite Divinity School in Fort Worth, Texas.Lozada draws on his experiences at U.S.-Mexico borderlands, leading travel seminars and teaching about immigration and justice from a theological framework. In this episode we discuss the influence of liberation theology's guiding principle of the preferential option for the poor, the centrality of history in understanding immigration, the problem of American xenophobia, the racialization of U.S. immigration policy, and the ways Jesus, himself a migrant and refugee, crosses borders and boundaries throughout the Gospel narrative.Thanks for listening.AboutFrancisco Lozada, Jr. is the Charles Fischer Catholic Professor of New Testament and Latinx Studies at Brite Divinity School in Fort Worth, Texas. He holds a doctorate in New Testament and Early Christianity from Vanderbilt University. He is a past co-chair of the Johannine Literature Section (SBL), past chair of the Program Committee of the Society of Biblical Literature (SBL), and a past member of SBL Council. He is a past president of the Academy of Catholic Hispanic Theologians of the United States, a past steering committee member of the Bible, Indigenous Group of the American Academy of Religion (AAR), and past co-chair of the Latino/a and Latin American Biblical Interpretation Consultation (SBL). He also serves on the board of directors for the Hispanic Summer Program, and mentored several doctoral students with the Hispanic Theological Initiative (HTI). Dr. Lozada's most recent publications concern cultural and ideological interpretation while exploring how the Bible is employed and deployed in ethnic/racial communities. As a teacher, he co-led immersion travel seminars to Guatemala to explore colonial/postcolonial issues and, most recently, to El Paso, TX, and Nogales, AZ, to study life and society in the U.S.-Mexico borderlands.

On today's episode, we celebrate our 200th episode on the Evidence Based Birth®podcast, where Ihotu Ali, EBB Research Associate, will be talking with our founder, Rebecca Dekker, about solidarity in birth work. In this episode, Ihotu asks Rebecca about her cultural upbringing, and Rebecca reflects candidly on racism and cultural differences she witnessed as a child growing up in the suburbs of Memphis, Tennessee. We also explore the harmful impacts of white privilege and white supremacy on birth and reproductive justice work, as well as oppressive agendas that harm communities of color and other marginalized communities. Ihotu and Rebecca also talk about solutions such as doing inner work, educating yourself, understanding your ancestry, creating solidarity with those from other cultural groups, protecting Black women and girls (vs. being a savior), and being aware of how your actions and words may have harmed people from marginalized groups. Content warning: We mention racism, white supremacy culture (including aspects of anti-black white supremacy), the uprisings in Minneapolis, the murder of George Floyd, racialized violence against Black communities.

When East Germany collapsed in 1989-1990, outside observers were shocked to learn the extent of environmental devastation that existed there. The communist dictatorship, however, had sought to confront environmental issues since at least the 1960s. Through an analysis of official and oppositional sources, Saving Nature Under Socialism: Transnational Environmentalism in East Germany, 1968-1990 (Cambridge UP, 2021) complicates attitudes toward the environment in East Germany by tracing both domestic and transnational engagement with nature and pollution. The communist dictatorship limited opportunities for protest, so officials and activists looked abroad to countries such as Poland and West Germany for inspiration and support. Julia Ault outlines the evolution of environmental policy and protest in East Germany and shows how East Germans responded to local degradation as well as to an international moment of environmental reckoning in the 1970s and 1980s. The example of East Germany thus challenges and broadens our understanding of the 'greening' of post-war Europe, and illuminates a larger, central European understanding of connection across the Iron Curtain. Julie Ault is an Assistant Professor of History at the University of Utah. She completed her PhD at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2015 before joining the faculty at Utah. She is currently a faculty fellow at the University of Utah's Tanner Humanities Center with the goal of developing her second book project, tentatively entitled Solidarity & Socialist Riches: East German Diplomacy, Environment & Technology, 1949-1989. Her research interests include the environment, transnational networks, social movements, socialism, and the Cold War.

Noh, a geopolitical analyst, a member of Veterans for Peace, and senior correspondent with Flashpoints on KPFA to discuss allegations made from the Pentagon claiming that China is building missile silos and stockpiling nuclear weapons, the broader context of China's possession of nuclear weapons and the United States' record on using such weapons and real threat to the world, and the mystery surrounding the collision of a US nuclear submarine in the South China Sea.In the third segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Justin Williams, co-host of Red Spin Sports to discuss the 2015 film “Across The Line” and the individualist, bootstrap ideology that the film advances, the privilege that the film fails to examine and how it connects to the real-world issue of Aaron Rodgers' misleading statements about his vaccination status, and the looming labor battle and potential strike in Major League Baseball.Later in the show, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Maurice Cook, founder of Serve Your City to discuss the Virginia gubernatorial election and the political reality of Virginia that contributed to Glenn Youngkin's victory, Washington, DC Muriel Bowser's announcement that she will be running for a third term as mayor, and the ongoing protest at Howard University

I'm excited to talk about another living legend who is a historical figure already and is still fighting for change. Learning about Helen Zia?

As the Party for Socialism and Liberation, we condemn in the harshest terms the brutal military coup that took place on October 25 in Sudan and the subsequent repression and arrests by the Sudanese military forces. We stand in full solidarity with the people of Sudan and the Sudanese Communist Party (SCP) in their resistance against the coup. We fully support the call by the SCP and the Sudanese Professional Association for a political strike and for the people to take to the streets in civil disobedience to stand against this power grab by the military forces opposed to the movement for change that began in 2018. This coup is a desperate effort to stop the process of transition of power to the people of Sudan and their legitimate representatives. We are confident that the mass protest movement which SCP is a crucial part of will emerge victorious against this reactionary coup. Long live the people of Sudan and their resistance! Long live the Sudanese Communist Party Hundreds of thousands of people in Sudan are in the streets courageously resisting the coup staged by the military on Monday. The country's top armed forces leader Lt. Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Burhan announced the take over and declared a state of emergency. As part of the coup, soldiers arrested Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok and other high ranking civilian officials, and it was revealed today that Hamdok was being held captive at al-Burhan's personal residence.

In this episode of By Any Means Necessary, hosts Sean Blackmon and Jacquie Luqman discuss the injustice of the imprisonment of Steven Donziger and the protection of wealthy interests over people under capitalism, how the brutality and inhumanity of the courts and the police are integral to the maintenance of capitalism, and how the capitalist state exercises its power to threaten those that challenge it with political imprisonment.In the second segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Chris Smalls, President of the Amazon Labor Union, founder of The Congress Of Essential Workers, and host of the podcast “It's a Smalls World,” to discuss an impending union vote among the Staten Island Amazon warehouse workers, the gap between the conditions that workers experience and Jeff Bezos' obscene wealth, Amazon's efforts to repress the union drive, and this struggle's place in the broader context of striketober.In the third segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Dr. Adrienne Pine, retired Associate Professor of Anthropology at American University and co-editor of the upcoming book Asylum for Sale: Profit and Protest in the Migration Industry to discuss upcoming elections in Honduras and the historical context of the 2009 coup driving conditions in the country, the influence of the narco-state and drug money on the election, the electoral repression and red-baiting tactics the ruling party is using against the opposition, and the US government's targeting of Honduras as a strategic military point for imperialism in Latin America. Later in the show, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Rachel Hu, co-host of the podcast It's Not You, It's Capitalism to discuss a recent uptick in school violence and how the instability in society caused by the capitalist system has contributed to violence, the community programs that have sprung up in response to this violence and how they demonstrate the true purpose of police and school resource officers, the documented rise in anti-Asian hate crimes and the Biden administration's misdirected efforts to counteract these hate crimes by providing more funding to the police, attempts to scapegoat Black people for the rise in anti-Asian hate crimes and the need for solidarity, and Andrew Yang's ridiculous new political party.

Joshua Stephens shares the story of a non-violent direct action he was involved with as part of the “Free Burma” coalition in Washington, DC, that got him arrested at the Myanmar embassy and subsequently labeled a “terrorist in the pay of the CIA and the Vatican” in the official paper of the Myanmar military junta. Matt and Joshua then talk about how they met doing activist work in the early 2000s, mostly in the Palestinian solidarity organization SUSTAIN, and reflect on the lasting impact that the experience and people had on them. Joshua then opens up about his upbringing, the impact of moving between the US, Bermuda and Sicily, and reflects on how stand-up comedy, skateboarding, straight edge culture and punk rock music influenced the development of his politics and worldview. He also explains Anarchism as a political practice and organizing framework, and shares historical examples of its implementation from revolutionary Barcelona in the 1930s to present day Rojava. Joshua also talks about the Zapatista movement, and how his experience with Zapatismo In Chiapas, Mexico influenced him significantly. And, finally, he reflects on his experience participating in the International Solidarity Movement (ISM) in Palestine, and how that solidarity work on the ground in Palestine was so transformative for him.

In this episode of FMEP's Occupied Thoughts podcast, FMEP's Lara Friedman speaks with Omar Shakir, Israel and Palestine Director at Human Rights Watch, about Israel's "appalling and unjust " designation of 6 leading Palestinian human rights NGOs as "terrorist organizations," including Israeli actions/policies targeting NGOs that preceded the decision, the implications of the designations for Palestinian human rights, and the role of the international community in granting Israel impunity that has for years enabled, fueled, and legitimized Israel's attacks on human rights defenders.
What's your favorite scary movie? Culture writer Lindsay Lee Wallace joins us to revisit Wes Craven's slasher-reinvention "SCREAM" as it nears its 25th anniversary. We discuss the film's sensational cast of rising stars, its brilliant subversion of well-worn (and fundamentally conservative) slasher tropes, and the distinctively personal meditation on grief and loss that elevate the film beyond its genre constraints. We also talk the most recent developments in the ongoing IATSE negotiations and the recent tragedy on the set of "Rust".

The tables are turning in America's one-sided class war that working people tend to lose. Strikes are cropping up nationwide, and workers are no longer settling for underpaid jobs, and everyone is sharing HBOMax passwords! #Solidarity. Stimulus checks have meant there's a bit more more ‘fuck you money' as economist Doug Henwood observes, leading to what some are calling The Great Resignation. Henwood joins to discuss how reckless the one percent has been and how much the pandemic has exposed that the ways we usually conceive of the economy are in and of themselves, bankrupt. Plus comedian Nato Green on Trump's new social media fail and what Alec Baldwin's accidental murder says about workers' rights on film sets.

What's up to my wild-hearted wildebeests and capering cape buffalos!Welcome back to the BNP everyone! Thank you for joining. Shout out to my patrons- I love you! Strap in folks, there's a lot on the docket for this one. This week is a solo mission, and I tackle 3 topics that are both timely and critical for empire babies and concerned global citizens to understand. They are also all being ignored in the corporate media, unsurprisingly. Firstly, we cover #Striketober, a month of rolling worker strikes across the U.S. There are currently 18 active strikes, including at massive corporations like Kellogg's and John Deere. Solidarity to all striking workers!! Boycott Kellogg's products until the workers get what they deserve. Secondly, we cover the ongoing Indigenous led protests against the Enbridge Line 3 Tar Sand Pipeline in N. Minnesota. This pipeline is brazenly breaking tribal treaties and polluting our precious land and water. Indigenous activists and allies occupied the Bureau of Indian Affairs building in D.C. for the first time since 1972. Over 150 people have been arrested and elders have been getting beaten and tazed by the state. Finally, we unpack AFRICOM, or U.S. African Command. AFRICOM represents a troublingly large and growing footprint of the U.S. military, intelligence agencies and special forces across the African continent. AFRICOM grew massively under the Obama administration, and has accelerated since the brutal overthrow of Libya, because the Libyan leadership was a major force in resisting AFRICOM. Now, it's spread out all across the continent, and the U.S. is executing 4,000+ mostly secret missions a year. We never hear about this, because the corporate media is white supremacist. This episode is my offering to help raise awareness about AFRICOM, so we can build a movement at home to end it. U.S. Out Of Africa! Thank you for rating, reviewing and subscribing to the BNP wherever you listen to podcasts, and for spreading the word and telling a friend about the BNP. It's how we expand our tribe of philosopher-barbarians and un-fuck the world together! Can haz patrons?

The topic of race is an ongoing discussion at school, at work, among friends and family, and at church. But how are those conversations forming and affecting our beliefs on the subject? For the final week of our series, Pastor Chuck Mingo from Crossroads Church shares a message to point people on both sides of the table toward seeing how Jesus sees, so we can love how Jesus loves.
Which kind of wisdom will people need to master to overcome major negative societal and/or psychological changes after the pandemic? In the last episode of the World After Covid miniseries, Igor and Charles share and discuss responses from 57 of the world's leading behavioral and social scientists, collected as part of the World After Covid (https://worldaftercovid.info/) project. Four final responses are selected, covering themes of big picture focus on what's important, shared humanity, long-term orientation, and political structural change in the midst of the pandemic. Igor reflects on how the immediate context can dramatically influence even experts' forecasts, and Charles is forced to question his cherished belief that people are ultimately good.

Hello and welcome to The Rob Burgess Show. I am, of course, your host, Rob Burgess. On this, our 204th episodes, our guest is Jessica Ordaz. Jessica Ordaz is an Assistant Professor of Ethnic Studies at the University of Colorado Boulder. She received her doctorate from the University of California Davis in American History. During the 2017-2018 academic year, Ordaz was the Andrew W. Mellon Sawyer Seminar postdoctoral fellow at the University of Washington, which focused on comparative racial capitalism. Her first book, "The Shadow of El Centro: A History of Migrant Incarceration and Solidarity," was released in March 2021. Her second project will explore the multifaceted history of veganism and plant based foods throughout the Americas, focusing on colonization, food politics, and social justice. This research will illuminate the wider and transnational history of Latinx veganism and how communities of color have engaged with questions of animal, human, and plant relations for centuries. A quick programming note: Her essay, which we discuss during the first part of this episode, is titled “The Detention and Deportation Regime as a Conduit of Death: Memorializing and Mourning Migrant Loss” and is included in the book “A Field Guide to White Supremacy” edited by Kathleen Belew and Ramón A.

On March 21st, 2021, thousands entered the streets of Bristol in the UK to vent their anger at deaths in police custody, police violence on the streets, as well as a slate of repressive laws including the SpyCops Bill, increasing impunity for government officials breaking their own laws, as well as the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill, or simply The Bill, targeting Roma people, Travelers, lengthens youth prison sentences and criminalizing dissent and protest amidst some of the harshest Covid-19 lockdowns the UK had seen. What became known as the Kill The Bill riot led to running fights with police, burnt cop cars, a dizzying disinformation campaign by police centering themselves as victims, and over 80 people arrested to date, with more being detained and some facing years in prison. From Monday the 25th & Wednesday the 27th of October 2021, defendant Ryan Roberts will be facing trial and is calling for international solidarity. For the hour, Tom and Nicole of Bristol Anarchist Black Cross talk about the #KillTheBill, police violence in the UK, the radical scene in Bristol, anti-repression work of Bristol ABC & Bristol Defendant Solidarity, the legacy of former Bristol resident Anna Campbell, the cases of the Colston 4 as well as that of Toby Shone, prison expansion in the UK and more. To learn more about their work and how to support and write to Ryan Roberts and other #KillTheBill defendants, visit BristolABC.Wordpress.Com, and to you can search that hashtag on social media for a demo in your area to join in on or to advertise your solidarity action! If you happen to be in Manchester, there's a demo on the 27th at 5pm at the Crown Court. And check the ongoing fundraiser for the defendants at GoFundMe! Check our show notes for more links, including our conversation with Dónal O'Driscoll from November of 2020 about the SpyCops case. There's also a new podcast out called SpyCops Info that includes folks who had been part of groups infiltrated by undercover pigs in the UK in past decades talking about individual cops and the ongoing inquiry that's worth giving a listen to: https://tfsr.wtf/spycops Also, check out this audio from Radio AvA, (a podcast by and for sex workers) with their coverage of the demonstration after the rape and killing of Sarah Everard by on-duty London Metropolitan pig Wayne Couzens: https://www.radioava.org/episodes/avashowmarch2021part1. We found that audio, shared by our comrades at Dissident Island Radio. We're releasing this interview a bit early so as to get word out about Ryan Roberts' trial, so it'll be a little longer of a wait between episodes. Annoucements New Eric King Solidarity Poster There is a really cool poster available in solidarity with anarchist and antifascist prisoner, Eric King, who is facing trial in a Denver court on a frameup right now. The poster was produced by Radix Media and here's what they had to say: To support Eric King, we are releasing a limited edition of 35 posters carrying one of his revolutionary poems. All profits generated from the sale of the broadside will be sent to Eric's support fund. The print is approximately 12.5″ x 20″ and was letterpress printed in multiple passes on our vintage Vandercook proofing press. You can find the poster at https://radixmedia.org/product/eric-king-support-letterpress-broadside/ Sean Swain Phone-Zap Sean Swain is in danger of being out-of-state transferred again, to who knows where. His support crew are asking that folks calls to Glen Elder, who is understood to be in charge of interstate transfers from Ohio Prisons, to express concern about Sean's safety, access to his legal counsel as well as family and support network in Ohio, and to question the legality of sending Sean out of state without the legally required hearing with Sean attending, which they skipped when he was sent to Virginia in 2019. Check SeanSwain.Org for a basic script in the next day or so. If you hear this message and Sean's segment doesn't follow, check back in with this podcast in stream for an updated version of this show by Friday evening, October 22nd, 2021, for the audio or check for updated shownotes with a link to his segment. . ... . ..

Like Frito-Lay, Nabisco, John Deere, and Heaven Hill Distillery, cereal giant Kellogg's has seen consumer demand skyrocket during the pandemic, reporting profits of $1.25 billion in 2020. To meet this demand, many workers in Kellogg's plants around the US report pulling 12-16-hour shifts seven days a week, leaving little time for anything outside of work beyond sleep. But the creation of a two-tier employment system in 2015 has meant that newer employees in the lower “transitional tier” are earning significantly less than their coworkers for doing the same work. Demanding that the company raise the floor for all of its employees, Kellogg's plant workers in Nebraska, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee have been on strike since Oct. 5.In this special video edition of Working People, TRNN Editor-in-Chief Maximillian Alvarez discusses the ongoing strike with Dan Osborn, who has worked at the Omaha, Nebraska, plant for 18 years and currently serves as president of the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union (BCTGM), Local 50G.Featured Music (all songs sourced from the Free Music Archive at freemusicarchive.org): Jules Taylor, "Working People Theme Song"
