Two Weeks Since My Second Dose…

from Sean Swain

I got my second covid-19 vaccine shot two weeks ago. Moderna.

We got together with different hosts of anarchist and anti-authoritarian radios and podcasts from anarchist radio network to talk about activism in their region in times of coronavirus, new state regulations to control the population and challenges anarchist organizers are facing in times of total lockdown around the world.

On the Anarchist Response to COVID-19

via MTL Counter-info

The Covid19 crisis has presented a challenge to anarchists and others who believe in a fully autonomous and liberated life.
