In this episode of the It’s Going Down podcast, we caught up with one of the people involved in the Occupied Southwest Distro, which is an insurrectionary and anti-colonial anarchist literature distribution project in the so-called Phoenix, Arizona area (Akimel O’odham Territory).

Joined with other Kurdish and anarchist groups, such as the Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement (RAM), the confederation set out to launch actions of solidarity and support on March 24th for the city of Afrin, which at the time was surrounded by the Turkish State.
