Lace up your boots, my friends, dust off your brass knuckles, and get ready for another weekly podcast of The Rebel Beat! This week on the show, we laid down a raucous, at times brutal, at times folky, antifascist music set. This is in following with our previous discussions on the unfolding refugee crisis in Europe and the Middle East, the response of fascist governments and their shock troops in several countries, but also on the heroic solidarity of anti-fascist militants, not to mention the bravery of the migrants themselves.

But we also look at the recent mobilizations against the xenophobic neo-nazi scumbags of Pegida in Toronto and Montreal. In both cities, anti-fascist and anti-racist protestors sent those Pegida bottom-feeders running scared!

We also began this edition of the podcast by celebrating the legendary Indigenous singer Buffy Sainte Marie, who took home this year’s Polaris Music Prize for best Canadian album! If you haven’t checked it out yet, “Power in the Blood” is amazing. Buffy is also the second Indigenous woman in 2 years to win this award, after Tanya Tagaq won it last year! Mazel Tov Buffy!

Hope you enjoy this week’s podcast! Some videos for the songs we featured are below!
