Interviews and Discussions

Interview with Farhad Bandesh, a kurdish musician, artist and activist. Farhad fled Iran in 2013 and spent more than 2,737 days in detention before being released from detention in 2020. He spoke to Green Left Radio presenters about his experiences of detention, what it's like being on a bridging visa, and why we need to keep protesting against the cruel refugee policies of our current government. You can listen to the individual interview here.

Recording of a interview from Green Left's Peter Boyle who spoke to Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) deputy chairperson S. Arutchelvan, better known as Arul, about the November 19 snap general elections and the politics and agendas of the various parties in contention. Until just days before the close of nominations, the opposition coalition Pakatan Harapan (PH) had been holding out hope that it would allocate certain seats to the PSWM under an electoral pact. But in the end no seats were made available to the PSM by PH. This was met with outrage and dismay from many people in the progressive social movements. You can view the individual interview here.

Interview with Peter Boyle, anti-war activist and member of Socialist Alliance about the United States’ plan to deploy six nuclear-capable B-52 bombers to the Tindal Air Base near Darwin and why it should be opposed by peace activists. You can listen to the individual interview here.
