The Rebel Beat Podcast 029 – Anarchist Resistance in Rojava, Burning Down the Borders w/ Submedia

Welcome back to another edition of The Rebel Beat, bringing you class war on the dance floor every week!

On this edition, our monthly collaboration with Submedia.TV is back fuckin’ on! Frank was back at the controls with us to bring us amazing sets of music – we would expect no less from our favourite purveyors of global anarchist revolt and riot porn videos. Plus, we featured an interview with a Turkish anarchist, El Cuchillo, on the situation in Rojava, a liberated Kurdish territory in northern Syria. To see the Submedia video featuring that interview, head on over here.

Rojava is particularly pertinent here, not just because the anarchist-inspired resistance against the war there is fucking badass, but also because Aylan Kurdi, the 3-year old boy who tragically drowned to death in that iconic image, was from the town of Kobani, Rojava. And so we dedicated most of the music on this show to looking at the unfolding refugee crisis (which should really be called a ‘border crisis’).

Thanks for listening.
