Here's the re-released Part 4 of the 4-part series I helped to produce at CKUT back in 2004 on anarchism. This final episode is a really inspiring glimpse into where the anarchist movement was at in the early 2000s. So many discussions at the time around squatting, anti-poverty activism, international solidarity, deschooling and ecology. Some featured voices: Ashanti Alston, Matt Hern, Andrea Schmidt, PJ Lilley, Amy Miller, Mandy Hiscocks & more. Enjoy!
Thank you to Passage Magazine for inviting me to share some anarchist analysis around voting and this upcoming election.
The takeaway here, and the positions I've supported for years, is that the question of whether or not individuals should vote is mostly irrelevant. Ultimately, the left should divest itself from electoral politics, and invest in direct action for change that is participatory, anti-capitalist, anti-colonial and anti-authoritarian. Bref, anarchist! https://readpassage.com/the-case-for-an-anarchist-approach-to-electoral-politics/?fbclid=IwAR3QOZfFIwCqxzXbOGZE_jr67b1-8m0Uo0A7jEPoQ6bxzaetcj9IRYqC4p0
Over the last month, I've been slowly re-releasing different parts of a 4-part radio documentary on anarchism we produced for CKUT back in 2004 called "Freedom on the Air". It brings back nice memories of spending late nights in the recording studio with friends, and doing weird experiments in audio editing.
This episode, "Theory & Practice" has interviews with the Federation Anarchiste from France, AK Press, Jamie Heckert on anarchy and sex, and Not4Prophet.
**Israel kills 15-year-old in night attack on refugee camp**

Just watched this film last night. So fucking good!!! Anyone else seen it? I highly recommend if you like films about badass women who swear profusely at their bosses and don't give a fuck about authority. Without giving the plot away, it's about a group of women sweatshop workers in Bangladesh who organize a union.
