SPOKEN WORD – Pre-Revolt by J Rey

https://soundcloud.com/on-resistance

INTERVIEW – Exploring our historical roots and legal rights to revolt – peacefully and violently in the face of corporate power and the 1% oligarchy with Mike Feder especially as declared in the Declaration of Independence http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/declaration_transcript.html

DISCUSSION – Stripping the power of #RiotShaming and #PeacePolicing that quells resistance. The system is inherently violent, why must we remain “non-violent”? How negotiating with the system validates the system’s right to exist. FUCK THAT SHIT!!!

038 – People Rise Up Radio – Prisoner Solidarity Part 1

Over our past 37 episodes we have often spoken of political prisoners. Sometimes those facing the injustice system have been our friends in real life. Always, they are our comrades.

For our first show back, we decided to take a look back and provide updates on prisoners we have featured on past shows.

This episode is part one of two that begins to express our love and rage for our comrades who have been captured by the injustice system.

We speak with ex-prisoner Cecily McMillan of Occupy Wall Street on her experiences with Occupy, the injustice system, and Rikers Island.

We also have a clip provided by Lucy Parks of the #FloodWallStreet12.

And please, in the name of all that is scared – DON’T MAKE PRISONERS TO BEGIN WITH! Learn about Jury Nullification

This episode features the music of Marx Sick Mind https://soundcloud.com/marxsickmind/no-justice-just-us
And Anne Feeney who will be a guest on a future show soon!

We also give an extensive update on revolutions worldwide that occurred these past seven months.

We also have a clip from CounterSpin – Janine Jackson speaking with Chris King of the St. Louis American, the oldest African American daily in the United States, about Ferguson.
