The Ex-Worker Podcast, Episode #22: Ukraine

#22: Ukraine – This week on the Ex-worker, we’re responding to a few listener requests and presenting an analysis of the situation in Ukraine, largely borrowed from our recent feature The Ukrainian Revolution and the Future of Social Movements. We’ll also hear an interview with a member of Belarus Anarchist Black Cross about repression in Belarus and Ukraine, courtesy of our comrades at A-Radio Berlin, as well as our recommendations for which insurrectionary journals you should take if you get stranded on a desert island. The episode is rounded out with news, and lots of upcoming events and prisoner birthdays.

rollover: "you say comrade like its a thing, an actual possible thing"

Hey worker, sometimes others terminology can be a challenge, for sure. Like, with so many meanings and so many of them loaded, how can we be sure we are talking about the same things? To clarify, when crimethinc refer to "comrades," they probably mean people that you are used to thinking about as "customers" or "potential customers."

yeah! where do I sign up to buy this podcast? or are you accusing worker of selling us anews? good thing your anticapitalist critique is so sharp!

No, just replace the words, and you'll see that dude's joke makes total sense:

"We’ll also hear an interview with a member of Belarus Anarchist Black Cross about repression in Belarus and Ukraine, courtesy of our customers at A-Radio Berlin."

See?

Who all else remembers the time worker farted INSIDE of the air conditioning at Crimethinc converge? They don't call worker "worker" for all the work worker does, if you know what I mean.

Really? Gonna hate on the RAF for accepting shelter from the east germans? Hmm, jail and what would amount to immediate execution or taking shelter in the DDR... The rest of their examples are equally watered down with little examination of context.

They were murdering RAF members is west german prisons for christ sake.

they didn't just hide out there, they were on the DDR payroll something serious. it's not like they just stepped over the border once to get out of the rain. if their examples are watered down, your example of their examples being watered down is straight up erroneous. the FOD from anews anons continues.

If getting caught in the center of war between liberal capitalism (EU) and explicitly totalitarian capitalism (Russia) is "revolution" than I guess "we are winning" after all!

How about the American Revolution? Or the Russian Revolution? Or the French Revolution? 1848? Revolution usually sucks. Anyone can do it. It has nothing to do with anarchists winning unless it's anarchist revolution. If you were hoping to keep that word all to yourself you're starting a bit late.
