About Yeah Nah Pasaran!

Andy and Cam have been keeping tabs on the far-Right for a minute or two now. After 10 years of misusing their timeslot on the Squatting & Unemployed Workers show to talk about fascism, they've decided to get serious and misuse their new show about fascism to talk about squatting every week. Below are some basic show notes, but a more comprehensive round-up can be found here.
