Dude, we forgot to defund the police!
This month we are talking about the very literal shitstorm that is the USA at the moment, some bright spots as very few of the monsters who brought Trump to power get a taste of karma, and the beginning of the end of Berlin’s “neutrality law”. Hosted by Diana Arce (she/her), Tina Lee (she/her), and Miriam Aced (she/her). Brought to you by Artists Without a Cause, Wählen Gegen Rechts and Migration Voter.

Rest in Power, Chadwick Bosman! And stay safe in Berlin this weekend as the fascist anti-maskers are all over the city!

Program Notes:

International Roundup

Diana’s in the US and there’s TOO much going on!
- Pandemic is still very real with over 1K people dying everyday. Despite this, everyone is trying to act like everything is normal, schools have opened.- Climate Crisis is VERY real - Hurricane season has started early with a record of 13 tropical storms hitting the southern states since so far.- In a reaction to Black Lives Matter protesters camping out in front of the Tennessee Capitol building for two months, the state legislative and governor have now passed a law making such actions felony charges, where protesters will also lose their voting rights.(!)
- Kenosha PD’s attempted murderer Rusten Sheskey has been put on administrative leave, while Jacob Blake, despite being paralyzed is being handcuffed to his hospital bed despite not facing any charges.
- 17 year old white supremacist terrorist murderer Kyle Rittenhouse charged with 1st degree intentional homicide along with other charges. The press are writing stories as if he was a good, misguided kid… funny how they couldn’t do that for Trayvon Martin or Mike Brown.
- Kentucky AG Daniel Cameron proves that you don’t have to be white to uphold white supremacy, by not doing his job and charging the 4 cops who murdered Breona Taylor, but having time to speak at the Republican National Convention
- Check out Mapping Police Violence
- Oh yeah, and the census deadline is being cut short. Ends now a month early on September 30th!
- Racist grifter Steve Bannon grifted his way into a federal indictment!
- NY files a new set of charges against the Trump organization
- Right wing christian conservative Jerry Fawell Jr got taken down by his former pool boy for being a sexual “deviant.” So much for those good ol’ christian values!- Kellyanne Conway jumping ship, thanks to her badass daughter Claudia Conway threatening to file for emancipation. She will leave her post at the White House at the end of this month.
- USPS workers in Texas and Washington disobey orders and reassemble sorting machines

- Belarus continues to tick: latest in a string of internet slowdowns/ blackouts by authoritarian regimes seeking to conceal their activities

2) Germany Roundup

- Miriam reports on the Neutrality law, coming straight from Erfurt where a major court decision has altered the application of the so-called “neutrality law” that is a de-facto employment ban for Muslim women who wear the hijab. Miriam was at the court on behalf of the Bundnis Gegen Berufs Verbot to watch the decision come down.
- Black in Germany? You still have time to fill out the Afrozensus! Deadline is August 31th!
