Nick is joined by Kathryn Joy for the whole episode and we discuss Reclaim Australia and the Rally Against Racism counter rallies. Reclaim Australia is an anti-Islamic movement with neo-Nazi links. There is an interview with Ray Grenfell, an anarchist activist and host of RTR92.1FM Indymedia, who discusses his experiences at the Melbourne Rally Against Racism and the importance of directly confronting fascists. Kathryn also discusses the Melbourne rally and Nick discusses his experiences at the Perth Rally Against Racism. We also play a couple of speeches from the Perth rally.

Other stuff covered on the episode is: bullshit claims from Reclaim Australia about “Halal funds terrorism” and the “threat” of Sharia Law, Crimethinc and Queer Punx on anti-fascist action, militant anti-fascism and gender, spectacle and protest, diversity of tactics, #ReclaimJeremy, Anarchist Affinity’s guide to being safe and effective against Reclaim Australia, and Indigenous resistance to Reclaim Australia.
