First up after Resident Anti-hero – The Weapons of Sound … Franklin Lopez’s interview with anarchist counterfeiter Lucio Urtubia.
Then we jump right in to talk about the Zapatistas with Morgan Rogers Gibson who wrote an honors thesis on the Zapatistas and anarchism. We also talk about another anti- state movement from Africa called the Abahlali baseMjondolo.
Morgan tells us about a movie about the Shack Dwellers called Dear Mandela
Also Wave talked to Rob who is involved in the Frontline Action Against Coal campaign centered around proposed a proposed coal mine in the Leard State Forest in New South Wales.
Jonathon Moylan wrote a hoax press release which stated that ANZ were pulling funding from the Whitehaven coal project due to environmental risks the mine will pose.
When media reported this without checking share prices for ANZ fell dramatically but generally recovered when the hoax was revealed.
Wave also spoke to Katso who organised an action in support of Jonathon Moylan which involved 100s of Out of Order signs being out on ANZ ATMs around the country.
