A book cover in red and black. Text says Banning the Bomb, Smashing the Patriarchy by Ray Acheson

A conversation with Ray Acheson in the 3CR studios, visiting from New York. We discuss cultures of militarism, patriarchy and militarism, nuclear submarines and AUKUS, and how to build an alternative to the 'inevitability' argument around war between the US and China. Ray is an organiser with Reaching Critical Will, author of Banning the Bomb, Smashing the Patriarchy (2021) and Abolishing State Violence: A World Beyond Bombs, Borders and Cages (2022). Ray has written extensively on disarmament issues through a feminist and abolitionist lens.
