Bad News: Episode #69

Welcome to 69th edition of BAD NEWS, Angry Voices from Around the World, which is a monthly news program produced by international network of anarchist and anti-authoritarian radios.

This month we have contributions from three radio projects:

On the first moment of our show, Črna luknja from Ljubljana has been speaking with a comrade who is currently based in Chiapas and is engaged in different efforts in solidarity with the Zapatista struggle. The conversation starts with news about the recent paramilitary attack on za Zapatista community Moises and Gandhi and then continues with more background about the paramilitary forces involved and about the recent dynamics in Chiapas.

On our second block, A-Radio Berlin brings us news from the territory dominated by the state of Turkey:
On 28 of May, demonstrations of Erdogan fans, including Turkish fascists, celebrated his narrow victory at the presidential elections. We were not very happy that he would still be in power in Turkey. A-Radio Berlin talked with a comrade about the situation in the country, what follows after this election, what would have been the alternative and what this all means for suppressed communities and revolutionaries.

On our final block, The Final Straw Radio from so-called Asheville, North Carolina in the USA is sharing part of an interview with Matthew Scott, a journalist with ACPC in Atlanta to talk about recent developments with the struggle against Cop City, the building of a giant police training facility with a simulated cityscape for urban counter insurgency training for law enforcement from around the USA & around the world in a forest in Atlanta, Georgia.
