Today, Bob and Scott talk about the state of the U.S. as protests, riots, rebellions and large scale police violence are erupting in dozens of cities across the country. All week, protests, riots and more have been happening in Minneapolis over the police murder of a black man named George Floyd. Now it has spread from coast to coast, and increasingly around the world, with real resistance (not the Democratic establishment led #resistance) against police and political leaders. We’re joined by long time organizer Jeff Ordower (@moredower) to talk about this moment and where we go from here.
In this episode, Bob and Scott talk with anarchist, U.S. military veteran, environmentalist and direct action organizer Graham Clumpner.
We discuss movement politics and the military during the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the rise of the far right since those wars and current politics and the military in the ages of Trump and COVID19.
