Andy Fleming & Cam Smith.
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.
We spoke to Jason about his two big scoops on the neo-Nazi terror network The Base, the first revealing The Base leaders' true identity and the second revealing the presence of a long-term anti-fascist infiltrator in the group.
This is the New York Times article to which Jason refers in the interview.
We spoke to Alexander about his feudin' & fightin' with Glenn Greenwald as well as a bit about his book Against The Fascist Creep, and the ways in which fascists attempt to co-opt Left movements. With bonus commentary from Canadian social justice comic book publishers Ad Astra & Jeremy from the Giving The Mic To The Wrong Person podcast.
We spoke to Shuddhabrata Sengupta of the internationally acclaimed RAQS Media Collective about India's Citizenship Amendment Act and the powerful female-led protest movement which is resisting it. You can read his excellent article on the Shaheen Bagh protests here.
We spoke to Shane Burley about the alt-Right and how it failed (OR DID IT?). We also discussed this piece in Full Stop Magazine. Shane's book, Fascism Today: What It Is & How To End It, is available from AK Press.
We spoke to Megan Squire about how far-Right groups use technology and the alt-tech which is used to circumvent deplatforming.
We spoke to Roy from Paparoa (as voiced by Karina from 3CR) to discuss fascism in New Zealand and the work they do to combat it.
We spoke to US-based journalist Jason Wilson about the reaction to the COVID-19 crisis on the part of the Right & the far-Right. A number of Jason's recent articles on the subject have been handily compiled over here.
We spoke to critical race theory & whiteness studies academic Anastasia Kanjere about fascism in contemporary 'Australia', whiteness studies, and the Insane Clown Posse.
