On this episode we discuss terrorism, Islamophobia, free speech and Charlie Hedbo. We discuss the way Rupert Murdoch was mocked by comedian Aziz Ansari and writer JK Rowling (and so many others!) for the anti-Muslim comments he made after the Charlie Hedbo attacks. We also read comedian Aaamer Rahman’s great article ‘Fears escalate as more young Australians enlist in overseas terror campaign’, which flips the roles in discussions around terrorism and who has to condemn it. For more on these issues, check out Nick’s article ‘When Will Moderate Whites Condemn the NAACP Bombing?’.

We also mention Aamer Rahman’s criticisms of Iggy Azalea and have a discussion on her hip hop, analysed through the lens of race, gender and class. Other stuff covered on the episode is: our 2014 Annual WordPress Report, New Internationalist’s 2015 diary, the market vs the environment (in cartoon form!), terrorism and increasing state powers, and criticisms of the I’ll Ride With You campaign.

On this episode we look at some of the ways in which Australians are resisting Islamophobia. This includes rallies in Brisbane and Perth. We discuss our experiences of being at the Perth rally and play some of the speeches from the rally – including Muslim activist Marziya MohammedaliDavid Fox from the Australian Manufacturers Workers Union, and Katie’s impromptu rant. You can watch all of the speeches from the rally here and you can see photos from it here. There’s also a discussion on online activism against Islamophobia, focusing on the Islamophobia Register Australia, the support they’ve received from non-Muslim Australians, and non-Muslims including journalists wearing head scarves in solidarity.

We also give some updates on the Swan Island Peace Convergence (#SIPC14), which we covered on episode 68. These updates include the brutality they faced at the hands of Australian soldiers being exposed on the 7.30 Report, analysis from CounterAct, responses to common objections to the brutality the faced, and the history behind the convergence. Other stuff covered on the episode is: books for prisoners, our last episode on Islamophobia in Australia gets reviewed by a politics student, and Abbott is booed at the NRL Grand Final. Shout outs to Legally Brown and Fear of a Brown Planet!
