    Ep. 033 — Let the right ones in: the changing asylum system of Fortress Europe , w/ Benedikt [EN]

    In today’s episode we sit down and talk with Benedik Kern, about the asylum system in Germany and the EU. Our guest tells us about the work that his organization is doing organizing so-called “church asylums” and “citizen asylums”, wherein churches and individual citizens offer safe places for people avoiding the Dublin system to hide from authorities. The main topic of the discussion is the coming change in the EU asylum system. It entails the outsourcing of the entire asylum procedure outside the EU, to camps in bordering countries that are considered safe. With this, there will be no more asylum procedure within the EU borders per se, fundamentally changing the whole movement landscape. The new law first has to be voted in the EU parliament and then implemented by individual countries in their national legal system, thus taking some years to come into effect. We talk with Benedikt about ways we can fight the consolidation of Fortress Europe, and how this must necessarily entail at least regional cooperation between groups and movements.

    Ep. 032 — Struggle in Western Sahara: (p1) Betrayals and Colonial Plunder /w Jamal [EN]

    In today’s episode we talk with human rights activist Jamal about the colonial occupation of Western Sahara by Morocco and the decades-long decolonial struggle of the Sahrawi people. We start the discussion by going over the chronology of the occupation, discussing the main international actors and their interests in the region, and how these interests ignore the rights and demands of the majority local Sahrawi population. We talk about the imperial and extractivist logic that drives Morocco, and how the EU is failing to uphold international law in exchange for access to fisheries, green energy and other benefits. In the second part we talk about the Polisario Front, the organization leading the resistance of the Sahrawis, and how people can support the cause.

    Ep. 031 – Educația pe vreme de grevă, cu Leneșx gang [RO]

    În episodul de azi vorbim despre situația generală din învățământul Românesc, și în particular despre protestul sindical din 10 mai și greva generală anunțată începând cu 22 mai. Episodul este înregistrat la cald după participarea noastră la protest. Discuția începe de la reflecții personale asupra sindicatelor din mediul universitar, unde activează unx dintre noi. Continuăm cu experiențe de la fața locului de la protestul din 10 mai organizat de federațiile mari de sindicate din învățământul preuniversitar și universitar. Discutăm apoi despre cauzele, legate mai ales de nivelul de salarizare, care au generat situația actuală și citim revendicările sindicatelor. La final, atingem și tema personalului care asigură curățenia și pază, trendul de a externaliza aceste servicii către firme private și efectul pe care l-ar avea externalizarea asupra acestor muncitorx.

    Ep. 030 – Economia foamei: livratorii și capitalismul pe platforme, cu Cosmin [RO]

    Ep. 030 – Economia foamei: livratorii și capitalismul pe platforme, cu Cosmin [RO]

    În episodul de azi vorbim cu Cosmin Popan despre munca de livrator în cadrul gig economy. Discuția pornește de la munca de cercetare făcută de Cosmin în trei orașe: Manchester, Cluj și Lyon. Perspectiva alternează între observații teoretice, conceptuale despre modurile în care acest tip de muncă afectează conștiența lucrătorilor și câmpul muncii în general, respectiv observații pragmatice de pe teren. În cursul discuției atingem subiecte precum tipul contractelor sub care lucrează livratorii, inițiative legislative la nivel național și EU și tipurile ascunse de coerciție care vin la pachet cu felul acesta de muncă. Discutăm, în particular, despre felul în care expansiunea acestui model de muncă ne constrânge nu doar posibilitățile economice dar și capacitatea de imagina lumi diferite.

    Ep. 029 — Solar coops and why they (could) rule /w Ashley [EN]

    In today’s episode we talk with author, professor, and activist Ashley Dawson about the neoliberal city in the context of climate change and the liberatory potential inherent in community solar energy projects. The first half of the episode follows our guest’s book, Extreme Cities. The discussion starts from observations on the usual scale of reporting and perception of climate change – global or national, but not the urban scale. We talk about how large climate projects are often designed with planned obsolescence in mind, and first of all serve the interests of the elites; about the unequal impact of climate change and how communities often respond through what Ashely calls disaster communism; and about community solar energy as an example of such a collective (preventive in this case) response in the face of crisis. The second half of the ep. is based on Ashley’s book, People’s Power, and makes a case for community managed solar energy projects as a progressive tool through which to tackle the issue of energy poverty and the looming climate apocalypse. The topics that we cover include the solar commons as an analytical and discursive tool, issues of accessibility (financial, technological etc) surrounding solar projects, and reflections on how the state fits into the picture.
