Your sons, like thousands of children of Kurdistan, were not afraid of Turkish fascism; nor are we. We have never and will never be. They were one of us.So in the name of pomegranates of Manbij and olive trees of Afrin, we will avenge them.
All that is dishonorable and dastardly has been concentrated in our rotten enemy. Yes, our enemy is rotten to the core and is disassociated from all that is human through a warped chauvinism. We will defend honour and dignity of being a human. That means we fight for freedom. We refuse a life if we are not able to breath, to think, to walk, to speak, and to act freely.

This sedition of Subversion #1312 features an interview with anarchist Jessica Harrison. Jessica lives in Wonthaggi in Victoria. She is active in the Australian Unemployed Workers Union.
The union recent;y had a bit of a win when the government was unable to reach a deal with the Nick Xenophon Team regarding welfare reforms, which would see an expansion of the cashless welfare card.

They say it was when the Howard government introduced work for the dole in 1997-98 that a radical change in the attitude towards the unemployed occurred “quote overnight the unemployed began to be treated like criminals’.
We’ve also got Bad Cop No Donut and plenty of new music including a brand new one from Urthboy (clip posted below).
In this program we are lucky enough to be able to speak with Combat Wombat’s Izzy Brown live and direct from Melbourne.
Izzy always has some incredible projects underway or planned.
Last time we spoke to her she was turning her ambitious refugee music project United Struggle into a musical.
She tells us all about the production and a planned tour plus the latest news about the West Papua Campaign and another amazing Freedom Flotilla joining the struggles between aborigines in Australia and the West Papuans.
Also another part of the interview Linda did with Jasmina Brankovich last week about Men’s Rights Activists and an anarchist perspective on gender issues.
The family court where many couples with children end up after their relationship ends is a major focus of MRAs so they talk a little about this. And more analysis of MRAs.
We play some shit hot new and not so new music as well.
