NAURU LEAKS

nauru165

I was pretty excited about this show. Having one of the people who leaked the documents that made up the Nauru Files was a fantastic opportunity, but also sure to be emotional and distressing.
The interview with Paul starts about 25 mins in.

First up though continuing one from last weeks special (show to be uploaded soon) on the Spanish Revolution is a reading from a text by a member of the Iron Column an anarchist militia active in the civil war. More info here.

The text is ‘A day Mournful and Overcast’. The reading is from Resonance Audio.

The rest of the show is an interview with Paul J Stevenson who leaked 2000 incident reports he gathered while working on Nauru and Manus.

He is a psychologist and traumatologist who worked at both centres for over a year. What he witnessed was so bad he began documenting the horrors unfolding inside Australia’s offshore detention centres.

RADIOACTIVE DINNER

brazil_olympics

Getting back into podcasting the show. For a while it’s just been on 4ZZZ in Brisbane and on demand from their website.

This sedition is Linda and Peter chatting  first, actually gossiping, a bit about what’s going on after a split in a socialist group in Brisbane. One group kicked the Stalinists out so Peter talks a bit about things that happened back in the day with socialists in Russia.

The main feature of this show is an interview with Robin Taubenfeld about food irradiation. In Australia the list of approved foods is growing and now blueberries and raspberries.

We also cover the Olympics in Brazil a bit and the regular segment Bad Cop No Donut.

“Anarchism is not a romantic fable but the hardheaded realization, based on five thousand years of experience, that we cannot entrust the management of our lives to kings, priests, politicians, generals, and county commissioners.” Edward Abbey.

ELIMINATE BORDERS

I’ve uploaded the latest Anarchy Show to radio4all.net.

The focus of this show is motherfucking borders and some of the trouble they cause.

LISTEN ONLINE

DOWNLOAD FROM RADIO4ALL

In Australia the political parties on both sides are obsessed with our borders and stopping many brown people from entering them.

The result of this obsession is the dismal conditions children, women and men are having to endure while there kept in Australia’s detention centers, the worst being offshore on Manus Island (Papua New Guinea) and Nauru.

Earlier in the year the Liberal National Government introduced a law which made it illegal for doctors and others working with detained refugees to speak out about conditions and incidences of concern in detention centers.

Dr Richard Kidd is co-founder of Doctors for Refugees and one of the 40 health professionals who has spoken out of defiance of the Border Force Act.

I interviewed him after he spoke at the Brisbane rally Stand Up for Refugees.

I also talk about G4S the huge multinational corporation who run some of Australia’s detention network.

Plus a debrief of the fascist activity in Australia over the weekend from Anna.

And finally The Stimulator givers us his rant about borders.
