The first is an interview with Vanessa Gray, an Anishnaabe land defender and community scholar facing heavy charges related to a pipeline lock down that happened in 2015. For more information visit Line 9 Shutdown.
The second interview is with Maggie from NYC Free Peltier. Maggie spoke about Leonard Peltier’s case and his current push for clemency before Obama leaves office.
This week we welcomed special guest M into the studio for a live on-air interview. We discuss the Guelph Anarchist Black Cross and its role in anarchist prison support, the emergence of the ‘noise demonstration’ tactic in Ontario, state repression and defensive infrastructure, and whether we can ever claim ‘victories’ in the struggle to destroy prison for anything short of, well, destroying prison.
Later in the show, we aired a short interview by a CPR contributor with anarchists in Philadelphia about the September 9th U.S. prison strike and the various ways people tried to support it in their local context.
Call for information: We’d like to do a future show with M about Do-It-Yourself remedies for common ailments using items you can get at canteens and cafeterias inside. Send us your ideas and we’ll work on this for the new year!
