This week, we bring you an exclusive report on the pandemic that’s infecting the globe: Insurrecto-Riotosis. The first wave of the pandemic was reported in the city of Nantes in France following the police murder of 21-year-old eco-defender Rémi Fraisse.
This contagion quickly spread to Belgium, where 100,000 peeps hit the streets in Brussels to show their anger to a proposed package of austerity cuts. In Mexico, insurrecto-riotisis is quickly turning into a full-fledged pandemic, as protests demanding the safe return of 43 students kidnapped on September 26th continue to escalate dramatically. Also, Wal-Mart employees in Los Angeles staged their first-ever sit-down strike against the mammoth retail giant. And all over Turtle Island, a massive fight-back against sexual violence and rape culture has blown up over social media.
On the music break, we have a killer mash up of Keny Arkana’s “La Rage” by DAM.
And this week, we feature an interview with Andalusia Knoll, a journalist with the autonomous media collective “Subversiones,” who breaks down the who, when, what, why and how of the insurrection in Mexico.
