We start off the episode by talking about our recent travels and our animal rights protest in Geneva, anarchism in Barcelona, and a discussion on China – including Internet censorship, Tiananmen Square and recent protests. Katie also provides a critical perspective on the definition of ‘refugee’, based on her study in Geneva. Finally, we discuss true globalisation and the free movement of people around the world (not just for “legitimate” refugees).
