Audios from our December 6, 2012 Show
For our December show, we start out with a report from DJ Plebe covering a recent Day of Action in Sevilla Spain which happened last november 24 The day of action focused on housing issues. About 500-1000 people came from all over Andalucia. Apartment buildings were occupied, one had 18 units in it and by the end of the day it was filled up with people who've lost their homes.
That story is followed by the return of our Durito Story hour segment honoring civil society and paying tribute to those who fight for it.
We also hear an interview with Emory Douglas, former Minister of Culture of the Black Panthers, in Chiapas as part of his new art and media project called Zapantera Negra.
From there, we move to Mexico City, to discuss the violent repression against protesters yesterday in the context of the inauguration of the new president, Enrique Peña Nieto.
And finally, our last segment is from two panels from last Months event at the Holdout, called Our Lips are Sealed: Grand Jury Resistance. These Panels discuss the history and current context of Federal Grand Juries as a mode of state repression and criminalization of dissent, as well as strategies for community resistance against Grand Juries and how we can increase our own power to fight against the state using alternative media.
