This episode features Nick’s talk ‘Veganarchism’, which explores some links between veganism and anarchism. You can view the PowerPoint for this talk here and it is also embedded below. You can also listen to the full talk and the Q and A after it here. This talk was recorded at the most recent Institute for Critical Animal Studies (Oceania) conference – you can hear other talks from this conference here. For more on veganarchism, see (for example) the pamphlet ‘Veganarchism’, the books Making a Killing and Anarchism and Animal Liberation, and Anthony Nocella’s work.

We also discuss Katie’s articles on the baby boomers and Game of Thrones (follow our blog at progressivepostings.wordpress.com to get email updates on the articles we post there), and Nick being an anarchist “since before pre-K”.

This episode features a selection of speeches from the Rally to #BringThemHere in Melbourne. This rally took place in light of Papua New Guinea’s Supreme Court ruling that Manus Island Detention Centre is illegal and Omid, an Iranian refugee, dying after setting himself alight as an act of political resistance. The rally was organised by the Refugee Action Collective (Victoria). You can listen to a full version of all of the speeches from this rally here.

Also covered on the episode is: refugees actively resisting their own oppression inside detention centres; the importance of avoiding nationalism in pro-refugee movements – for more on this, listen to Ezekial Ox’s speech from the Let Them Stay rally; the limitations of the #LetThemStay campaign (which we covered on episodes 125 and 126); and a little bit more on trigger warnings – drawing on an article by Lindy West – we covered trigger warnings on episode 131.
