On this episode we discuss the recommendations that came out of the Banking Royal Commission. We also discuss the shared views on economic issues amongst the different factions within the Liberal party.

We also cover a challenge to the government’s “Robo-Debt” where they try and get money out of people receiving welfare benefits without sufficient evidence. Check out our 157th episode for more on this issue. Also check out fakejustice.net for more on how the law is applied very unequally to different groups.

We finish the episode by discussing Nick’s article ‘Solidarity and Intersectionality at Invasion Day Narrm (Melbourne)’. We promoted this protest last episode #220.

In light of the recent industry-imposed live export (very partial) ban, this episode features the talk ‘An Anarchist Analysis of the Campaign Against Live Animal Export’ by Jess Ison and Nick. In this talk, we critique the campaign based on anarchist, anti-racist and animal liberation perspectives. This talk was recorded at the 2018 Melbourne Anarchist Bookfair and you can see links to all of the sources referred to in the description of the talk on archive.org – you can also hear the full talk including a section from Lara Drew at that link.

For more on connections between animal liberation and anarchism, check out episode 202 and you can also hear about the Fast for Freedom mentioned in the talk on episode 192 and listen to episode 131 for more on mental health and animal advocacy.
