Our Power On The Streets

Wednesday, 24 June 2020 - 8:30am to 9:00am
Protesters face off against the police line at the Kangaroo Point blockade

Over the course of this pandemic almost every aspect of public life has ground to a halt - public protests and street movements are no exception. This week we talk to workers who have been organising to keep our ability to take action in the streets alive, achieving incredible things along the way.

Tilde talks with Rose from the Community Union Defence League about their mutual aid programmes, interviews workers in so-called New South Wales about their protests with RAFFWU and the May 1 Movement, and learns from Natalie about the Kangaroo Point blockade being held in Meanjin (Brisbane).
