Episode Info: This week’s podcast was recorded on May 31, 2020. We won’t be discussing a new piece of media; we’re discussing a nation at war. Over the past week, we have watched as righteous protests rise in the wake of the Minneapolis police murder of George Floyd—and the deaths of many other black people including Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and Tony McDade. In response, the white supremacist American state apparatus has activated violently. Today, we want to share with you some of what we’ve seen, resources that might help you take action, and ways to make sense of some of the conflicting narratives we’re being fed. #blacklivesmatter RESOURCE LIST: PETITIONS, DONATE, CALL AND EMAIL TO DEMAND JUSTICE AND SHARE: ORGANIZATIONS TO SUPPORT (but please do your own research):List of BLM suggested ways to support: The BlockNorthstar Health (street medic collective)Black VisionsMN Freedom FundBlack-Led Orgs in Minnesota Leading Efforts Against Police Brutality, Paying Bail, Treating ProtestorsList of various relevant organizations: funds by city:*9qAq-y8AlfZOJsK6hO1N9A LINKS FOR READINGS AND REFERENCE:Article: “Thousands of Complaints Do Little to Change Police Ways”Thinking of Protesting?
