Our guest this week is Nick Estes, citizen of the Lower Brule Sioux Tribe, Assistant Professor of American Studies at University of New Mexico, host of the Red Nation Podcast, and author of Our History is the Future: Standing Rock Versus the Dakota Access Pipeline, and the Long Tradition of Indigenous Resistance.
We discuss the link between indigenous and black struggles in the context of the no-DAPL blockade at Standing Rock and Black Lives Matter, statue removals and vandalism in New Mexico and in New York at #OccupyCityHall, whether attacking statues of Lincoln and Grant are "justified," and the final boss: Mt. Rushmore. Finally we chat about the tensions and intersections between decolonization and revolutionary communism.
Please support some of the political prisoners we discussed in the episode:

In this edition of Vampire Castle, Jamie and Leslie discuss two coming-of-ageless films: Tomas Alfredson's Let The Right One In (2008) and Neil Jordan's Byzantium (2012) aka Ladybird II. If you are turned as a teen, do you stay an asshole forever or do you eventually grow up? How is Sweden so lovely yet so terrifying? And why do vamps always say they can't be friends with you right before they fall in love with you for all eternity? Listen on for answers to these and other bloodsucking questions.

While the most riotous moments of the George Floyd Uprising have past, in parts of the country renewed attention to police tyranny continues to lead to clashes. LA Podcast co-host Scott Frazier joins us to talk about the struggle in Los Angeles, specifically against its massive Sheriff's Dept (LASD) now in the spotlight for horrific acts of violence following the discovery of Robert Fuller, a black man dead from hanging, in Palmdale California.
After immediately ruling the death a suicide with no evidence, LASD killed Fuller's half brother Terron Boone. And last week they inexplicably killed 18 year old Andres Guardado, a security guard working out of their jurisdiction. Then they removed the cameras.
We talk about the history of LASD and the broader context of riots and political struggle and racism in Los Angeles. We also tell some fun LA Stories!

Jamie speaks with Matt Marciniec (@Mattceinicram) about Justice Frontline Aid (@aid_justice), a mutual aid project in Minneapolis that's helping liberated use values find their way to people who need them.
Sean and Jamie wrap it up with some commentary, NPR style.

In this very special edition of the Antifada, Jamie, Sean and Andy take questions from listeners. How do we envision a world without police? What will our lives be like after the rev? And what exactly went on at the parties Jamie used to throw?
Thanks x1000 to everyone for helping us keep this circus running.
Sorry if we didn't get to your question, we will hop on Twitch and answer more questions soon!

Around the world and back again, episode 100 of the Antifada! And what better circumstances under which to record an release than the largest national uprising in several generations?
Jamie, Sean and Andy analyze the revolt that has arisen since the police murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis: the connection between the carceral state and crisis; the racial caste system that divides us and benefits the rich; the reaction on the streets of Minneapolis; the meaning of abolition; and what to make of America in the age of riots. Tune in for our on the ground account of what's been happening on the streets of NYC.

Recorded before things really popped off last week, Sean was joined by returning champion Andy Battle and co-host of Ironweeds podcast, David A Banks.
We hope this wide ranging discussion of capitalist space, de/unionization, de/industrialization, supply chains, gentrification, uneven development and class struggle will be an oasis of calm as you righteously take the streets where you are and then [REDACTED].
