Well Brisbane ‘Australia’s new world city’ hosted the G20….. the media hyped it up for months all the world’s anarchists were coming to Brisbane to smash shit up and kill your grandmother.
What ended up happening was that it was really fucking hot, Tony Abbott made a fool of us once again and there was a street parade involving .001% of Brisbane’s population.
The police are hailing their operation a huge success……. the media claiming all the police stopped any violence or property destruction from happening. To be honest it’s a bit sickening.
Will anything change? Would more direct action have changed anything?
There are the things we must think critically about, future shows will discuss this more.
The cult of non violence is something that is well and truly dominant in Brisbane’s ‘left’ movement. To think critically about this we play an interview with Peter Gelderloos author of How Nonviolence Protects the State and The Failure of Nonviolence.
Also I wrote some satire about the BLACK BLOC PARTY that could have been.
