    Free them all! (Defense Committees)

    If someone is facing charges of any kind, supporters might form a defense committee, basically a small group of people dedicated to supporting that individual through their trial and, if they serve time, once they are inside. This episode explores anti-fascist political prisoner David Campbell’s experience with a defense committee and the experience of K and Heena, members of Ashley Diamond’s defense committee and organizers with Survived and Punished. 
    If you’re listening to this episode the week it comes out, this week is a week of action for Ashley Diamond! Go to freeashleydiamond.com to learn more.

    Street Action 1: Get Ready

    Street Action 1: Get Ready

    In this two part episode, I’ll be covering some street tactic how tos. This first part will talk about things to do before hitting the street. If you’re a seasoned street activist, I think you’ll still find some interesting information in here. If you’re brand new, you’ll find some great ways to get started. And this is also a great resource to send to someone who may be coming with you to a rally or action and doesn’t know exactly how to prepare.

He can be hard to know how to join the struggle around you and this podcast does a phenomenal job at breaking that down. It’s informative and well researched and a great tool

Perfect for anyone ready to join the good fight!

Rebel Steps is THE perfect podcast for anyone who has read and learned enough to know pretty well what they believe and what causes they would devote a lot of time, if only they knew how to get connected with the right group.
Not only does Rebel Steps cover all you need to know about joining the right group and being respectful, both of the people who have already put in a lot of labor building the group, but also to yourself, so you don't get burnt out or disillusioned.
And they do all this in bite-sized episodes around 20 minutes, each on a different aspect of activism, pulling in interviews with veteran organizers.
By the end of season one, you will feel ready and excited about getting involved and make a real difference. I especially enjoyed the episode on mutual aid. Not only was it a succinct and thorough, but I really felt how empowering yet simple the concept was.
Rebel Steps is mandatory listening for anyone ready to make the leap from armchair activist to down and dirty comrade
