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.

This show features speeches from the Melbourne Blak Lives Matter rally – the recording is thanks to 3CR Community Radio. We also discuss how significantly the Black Lives Matter movement has changed public opinion in the US and beyond, drawing on The New York Times article ‘How Public Opinion Has Moved on Black Lives Matter’ by Nate Cohn and Kevin Quealy.

Another topic covered is Australia’s racist history, which included slavery.
