For the first instalment of our new In the Streets segment, we spoke with an anonymous queer anarchist who’s affiliated with The Tower, an anarchist social space in so-called Hamilton, Ontario. Queer and trans folks in Hamilton have been experiencing heightened police repression following this year’s Pride events, and called a multi-city Day of Action in response.

We went on a trip to Buffalo, NY last month to speak with anti-imperialist political prisoner David Gilbert. We talked about his Jewish upbringing, what he learned from the Weather Underground, and how his thinking has changed over time. We highly recommend the show notes for this one!

On this episode, we had two conversations about the history of Fascism. We first spoke with Gord Hill about the history of Anti-Fascist movements and the connections between Fascism and Colonialism. We then spoke with Shira Klein about how to understand the widespread Jewish support for Fascism that existed in interwar Italy.
On this episode, we focused on the anti-Jewish immigration laws passed during the 1920s and 1930s & how they relate to the present.
We spoke with Syed Hussan (a migrant justice organizer in Toronto) about the Canadian government’s upcoming apology for turning away Jews fleeing the Nazis, and how this fits into Canada’s immigration history. We also spoke with Libby Garland (author of ‘After They Closed the Gates: Jewish Illegal Immigration to the United States, 1921-1965’) about how the history of unauthorized Jewish migration can help us better understand the current moment.
