Welcome back for another weekly edition of The Rebel Beat! This week it’s our favourite time of the month, that time when Frank from Sumedia.tv comes in to studio to share what’s been going down on his TV show, and play some wicked riotous tunes.

This week, we have an interview with Austin, TX-based anarchist organizer and author Scott Crow, talking about the shit-show that is the US election circus. We also talked about recent global anti-fascist and feminist actions against Pegida and Roosh V (a so-called “Pick-Up Artists” who supports the legalization of rape). And, because the WHOLE WORLD was talking about it, we threw in a bit of Super Bowl 50 commentary. But don’t worry, just a bit 😉

And of course, plenty of revolutionary music. See the amazing playlist below! Continue reading

Hi! Welcome back to another weekly podcast of The Rebel Beat!

It almost feels like way too long, but this week we’ve got our regular collaborator Frank from Submedia.TV back in studio with us. Since November 29th is the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, we took the opportunity to highlight the amazing liberation movement in occupied Palestine, the global Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, and play some music by artists who ha12299121_550361788446685_1636856390685823063_nve heeded the call to boycott Israeli apartheid. As an inspiring example, in Montreal in 2010,  500 artists signed an open statement pledging their support for Palestine. Continue reading
