In this episode, Raechel has the privilege of talking with a member of Redneck Revolt, “a national network of community defense projects from a broad spread of political, religious, and cultural backgrounds. It is a pro-worker, anti-racist organization that focuses on working class liberation from the oppressive systems which dominate our lives.” This past week, members of RR joined other antifa activists to protect people on the ground in Charlottesville and Durham. Our guest was in both places.
This is a must-listen for anyone committed to supporting the struggle against white supremacy and fascism. I think, if you aren’t already, this interview will inspire you to be in solidarity with the diversity of tactics we need for this fight, including armed defense.
INTRO: “Top Floor” GRRRL PRTY
MIDDLE: “The only good fascist is a very dead fascist” Propaganda
OUTRO: “All you fascists bound to lose” Woody Guthrie
In lieu of promo-ing our Patreon and social media, we hope you’ll consider donating to jail support or other antifa needs in your communities. Stay safe and take care of each other.
