May Day 2018 Roundup

Listen to the Episode — 44 min


Our annual roundup of worldwide May Day actions. We have interviews with participants in May Day actions in Puerto Rico, where there was a general strike, and Paris, whose black bloc didn’t only take the cake, they took the whole damn bakery! Indonesia saw black blocs erupt all over the country, and now a wave of politically-motivated arrests there are targeting anarchists. In the USA, opposition to ICE and deportations was one clear theme, and the calls for decentralized actions did yield some spikey vandalism in the Pacific Northwest. We also have a short update about what’s happening at La ZAD.
