Welcome back to another weekly podcast of The Rebel Beat! This week, we’re very proud to bring you our annual International Women’s Day special. International Women’s Day is celebrated around the world on March 8th in order to amplify women’s struggles against patriarchy, capitalism, racism, and all other forms of oppression and domination.
On the show this week, we talked about some of the many IWD events happening in Montreal. But if you’re not in Montreal, be sure to look for local events happening in your city or town!
On this show, we also bring you an interview with the fierce feminist punk band Downtown Boys, done by Amy Goodman at Democracy Now. If you haven’t checked out Downtown Boys yet, DON’T SLEEP ON THIS! An amazing band with amazing politics.
Plus we have almost 2 hours of music here spanning many genres from the spoken word stylings of Rafeef Ziadah and Natasha Kanape Fontaine, to the hardcore punk of Rape Revenge.
Enjoy! And SMASH THE PATRIARCHY!
