    Friend of the show Jake Flores (@feraljokes) joins us with an eyewitness report on the clusterfuck of anti-war protesters, fascist counter-protesters, and cops that erupted at UCLA recently. Also: how the Kendrick-Drake beef maps onto the DSA-ultraleft topography, Comrade Macklemore, and a drop of cum discourse.

    The PG crew recaps what's happened this past week as student occupations have spread, intensified and...are they beginning to generalize?? From our mouths to God's ears. Special focus on NYC and Chicago, because that's where we live (please don't stalk us unless you are hot and in a band).

    Media narratives. Tactical evolutions. Why is the state cracking down so hard? What would need to happen for these protests to grow into something that could actually stop the genocide in Gaza and all future genocides?

    The Party Girls crew is joined by "C," a student organizer from Columbia University, to talk about the protest encampment that touched off a wave of activity across the country as students and non-students alike organize against genocide in Gaza.

    Then: a brief history of the 1968 student occupation of Columbia and the 2008 occupation of the New School. What lessons can modern day militants draw from these examples?

    The Party Girls take on Alex Garland's big budget action film with a message(?), Civil War (2024). Was this movie liberal garbage, or do we just not understand art? What would an actual second civil war in the US look like? How are we, the left-wing partisans, going to die? Why is Jesse Plemons so good at playing fascists?

    In this episode, Jamie and Sam talk about John 'Jack' Mazurek's March 29 bond hearing, in which he was granted a $75,000 bond and assigned to house arrest, a victory for the Stop Cop City movement. During that hearing, the prosecution spoke extensively about the Zapatistas and the "autonomous zone" in Chiapas, Mexico, as well as the Invisible Committee, the anonymous french ultra-left collective targeted by French anti-terror and law enforcement agencies. The PG crew unpacks, drawing historical parallels with the First Red Scare.

    The Nationwide Summit to Stop Cop City in Tucson, AZ last month featured a panel called "Ending Our Addiction To Losing" in which three POC organizers reflected on how so-called "identity politics" mediate radical movements. How do we, as revolutionaries, deal with the ways race shapes our current reality without losing sight of the world we want to build? We are proud to present the audio from this panel, plus a bit of commentary from us.

    Panelists: Lorai, Anonymous, Athena

    For the first ever edition of Party Girls Zine Club, Sam and Jamie discuss Inhabit: Instructions for Autonomy, a 2018 broadside (or little orange book, if you will) from Inhabit, which is not a mere media project, but "a collectively and anonymously written strategy emerging from a network of autonomous projects across North America." What do we make of Inhabit's steps to revolution? Why present speculative fiction in a programmatic context? What does this work of ultra-left thought get right, and where does it fall short? How many times have YOU gone to the antifa super-soldier gym this week?

    Jamie and Sam are back from the Nationwide Summit To Stop Cop City that took place in Tucson, Arizona February 23-26. From an ill-timed rave to a meeting with legendary anarchist Ben Morea, this episode will make it clear why the party girls are so tired, but also so pleased.

    Correction: Sam attributed the "psychedelics are telephones" quote to Timothy Leary. This quote was actually said by Alan Watts.
