From Embers: New Content in February 2020

Submitted by From Embers

From Embers is a regular anarchist podcast produced in Kingston, Ontario. We produce a few episodes each month about actions and projects going on in so-called Canada that inspire us, or about topics that we think will be relevant to anarchists living north of the border. We are a proud member of the Channel Zero Anarchist Podcast Network.

We published three episodes in February 2020:

February 6th: Foire D’Hiver/Winter Fair

Conversation with an organizer of this year’s Winter Fair in Montreal: a book/zine fair as well as discussions annd workshops around trauma, dealing with conflict, and building resilient and strong communities of struggle. This year’s event is focused on the many ways to mitigate the harms that often accompany conflict – both from the state and from within our interpersonal relationships.

February 12th: Wet’suwet’en Land Defense

An interview with Dtsa’hyl, a hereditary chief of the Wet’suwet’en Nation. The Wet’suwet’en people have defended their land against pipelines for more than a decade. After an RCMP raid on their territory on February 6th, a national movement was sparked to #ShutDownCanada and protest against the infringement of Indigenous sovereignty.

February 29th: #ShutDownCanada: From Oka to Today

This week’s episode features an interview with Gord Hill, a member of the Kwakwaka’wakw nation whose territory is located on northern Vancouver Island and adjacent mainland in the province of “British Columbia.” He has been involved in Indigenous people’s and anti-globalization movements since 1990 and is the author of The 500 Years of Resistance Comic Book and The Antifa Comic Book.
