Revolutions Per Minute - Radio from the New York City Democratic Socialists of America

Antifascist Mobilization

Episode Summary

On the two year anniversary of the deadly attack by a white nationalist on the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh and the eve of the 2020 election, we’re joined by antifascist organizer and very special guest (you know her better as a host and comrade here on RPM) Amy Wilson to discuss the various organizing strategies and mobilization efforts in the movement to fight back against far right violence here in New York City and beyond. You can follow @UARFNYC on Twitter for updates on this Sunday’s broad-based mobilization. However, first we'll check in on the Socialist Feminist struggle for Reproductive Justice following the confirmation of Amy Coney Barret. We also have a report from the streets on the fight against the fracked gas pipeline in North Brooklyn. Lastly, before we begin we just want to let our listeners know that we will be moving to a new time slot after today’s show. Starting next week we’ll be on Wednesday nights at 9pm. Today we’ll give a preview of some additions to our format, including opening the phone lines earlier in the show so we can hear from our listeners.
