Chapter five of this multipart series discusses strategies for self-invention and becoming in the work of Gloria Anzaldúa, Audre Lorde and Saidiya Hartman; the struggle for access to Native spirituality practices in Canadian prisons and the pitfalls of ally politics; response to calls for oppressed nationalisms and essentialism practiced by people of color.

From Black and Green Podcast, October 4, 2018
Had the pleasure of swinging by Eugene, Oregon to meet up at John Zerzan’s house over last weekend along with five other current and former editors of Black and Green Review to talk about the journal, direction, discussion about the anarchist milieu and the directions to push anti-civ discussion. Featuring John Zerzan, Evan Cestari, Lilia, Cliff Hayes, and Yank.
The Movement of Color podcast interviews two members of Black Rose/Rosa Negra Anarchist Federation (BRRN), Markie from Los Angeles and Johnathan from Miami. They discuss the place of BRRN within the anarchist tradition as well as their experience within the left as people of color.
From It's Going Down
In this episode of the It’s Going Down podcast, we caught up with anarchist organizer, metal head, and journalist Kim Kelly. In this interview we cover a lot of topics, from Kelly’s recent successful introduction to anarchism in Teen Vogue, how she got radicalized, became involved in the world of journalism, anarchist ideas getting into the mainstream, unionization efforts in news media, and also the world of metal.
Alanis is back! And she reads our feature this episode, an audio version of the recent CrimethInc. text Kavanaugh Shouldn’t Be on the Supreme Court. Neither Should Anyone Else. We also interview an anarchist in Portland, Oregon about the #PatrickKimmons actions at the intersection where police killed him. Winter, one of the anarchists in jail defending Germany’s Hambach Forest in the last couple of weeks, is refusing to surrender their legal identity to the government. However, they did submit a beautiful letter to Rhineland Anarchist Black Cross, which we also read in this episode. Send us news, events, or ideas on how our show can better serve anarchist activity in your town by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This week we are very pleased to present an interview with Mango and Marin, who are mental healthcare workers based in New York City. We are going to get into a lot of topics, including anarchist critiques of psychiatry, ways that anarchists can be comrades with people who have survived the psych industry, and the Earth First MAD Camp. Shoutout to Jayden for setting up this interview!
