Podcast from the organisation Plan C. We exist to organise in, beyond, and against Capitalism. We think this requires the development of ideas and practices that are able to cohere together whilst at the same time being dynamic enough to adapt to changes in our lives and our work.

    #DemandANewNormal

    #DemandANewNormal

    What is #DemandANewNormal, why is it needed, how did it come about.

    We talk to two members of Plan-C as they describe how the project came to be.

    "This project is a response to the moment  we saw the world stop and we saw that things could change rapidly and dramatically. That inspires you to think well if we can do it for this why can't we do it for the climate crisis, for systemic racism and why can't we revolution our society... We wanted people to think not just about this important moment of change but also about a future beyond capitalism "a new normal". Lots of radical demands for change and resistance opened up in this crisis and this project is trying to make sure that those stories are not lost and for us to be able to learn and work with those stories to recognise our power"

    Join us to discuss what our new normal should be post pandemic and post 2020
