    The Corporate Push to Criminalize Speech

    The Corporate Push to Criminalize Speech

    There's a lot of discourse happening about free speech in the context of "cancel culture" these days, but precious little coverage of the push all over the world to criminalize protest...particularly environmental and climate protest. We'll be digging into this trend in detail over the next several months, but first a look at what prompted extractive industries to start agitating for governments to crack down on protest, what tactics they use, and why they've been so effective.

    Disha Ravi on Becoming the Face of "Radical" Protest in India

    Disha Ravi on Becoming the Face of "Radical" Protest in India

    When she was just 22, Disha Ravi, co-founder of Fridays for Future in India, had police show up at her home, borrow a pen and paper to write an arrest warrant on the spot, and bundle her onto a plane to fly across the country to a city she'd never been to. Here she explains what happened, how it's still impacting her two years later, and why she'll never let it stop her activism or force her out of India.
    An extended version of this interview will run in partnership with the Heated newsletter next week, as the G20 Summit gets underway in Delhi.

I was looking for this podcast without knowing it existed.

“Constant unrest”
Why not mention the USA and UK role in deposing the democratically elected Cheddi Jagan, the speakers parents would be of that generation.? If you don’t give any dates, how is the listener supposed to apply a historical context.
