The Final Straw is a weekly anarchist and anti-authoritarian radio show bringing you voices and ideas from struggle around the world. Since 2010, we’ve been broadcasting from occupied Cherokee land in Southern Appalachia (Asheville, NC). We also frequently feature commentary (serious and humorous) by anarchist prisoner, Sean Swain.
A Hamilton Anarchist Responds to Repression & "The Spectre & The Sovereign"
We’re happy to bring you three segments in this week’s show. The first is Sean Swain, who hasn’t been heard on the airwaves for a few weeks, followed by an anarchist from so-called Hamilton, Ontario, to talk about repression faced by queer folks and anarchists since Hamilton Pride and assess what’s next. It should be noted that at the time of this recording, Cedar Hoppington was on hunger strike from their initial detention for 5 days. We’re not sure where that stands. You can keep up on how to offer solidarity and what’s happening by visiting North-Shore.Info. Finally, we’ll be airing Timothy Grieve-Carlson reading the paper”The Spectre and the Sovereign: The Problem of the Paranormal in Biopolitical Thought”, presented on the panel “Liberatory Horizons” at the 2019 NAASN Conference in Atlanta, GA.
