We discuss violence and the state, as well as bringing you some speeches from the Invasion Day rally in Melbourne – Kulin Nations.

One thing we didn’t do was define the state but what we are talking about there is not just the government but also the police, prison system, court system etc. We discuss the broader definition of violence in the context of family violence and whether or not it can be applied to the state generally and prisons specifically.

The speeches we play from Invasion Day are by Greens politician Lidia Thorpe and historian Gary Foley. This audio is from 3CR Community Radio and you can listen to the full rally via the 3CR website.

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.
