Bursts spoke with a comrade y’all might recognize, a Camille who lives on the ZAD, or Zone To Defend in Notre Dame De Landes, Britanny, France. Camille and Bursts spoke in January upon the announcement of the French government’s decision to cancel the building of an airport to replace the one in Nantes. After literally decades of struggle, and nearly a decade of squatting and on and off fighting of the cops who attempted to evict the community, the ZAD protests won. Sort of.
From It's Going Down
In this episode of the It’s Going Down podcast, we talked with two members each of the North American Kurdish Alliance (NAKA), a network of Kurdish people across the US who support the Rojava Revolution and Kurdish self-determination, as well as Demand Utopia, an organization of anarchists and communalists in the Pacific Northwest. 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.

True basement dwellers will remember our totally unlistenable first episode where we tried to talk about Jacques Ellul's book "Anarchy and Christianity." A year later, we revisited the book together in Toronto. Highlights include Ellul's weird anarchism, some more of that Very Good reflection on violence, and a reminder that there are cooler Christian anarchists out there!
