Episode #12: All Cops Are Banned (from the Pride Parade)

In this fortnight’s episode, we dive deep into the Politburo’s collective activist histories and talk about the fight to get Police and Corrections Officers out of the Auckland Pride Parade.

The episode starts with our regular discussion of why the Labour Party is Not Your Friend. This week, the NZ Labour Party decided to turn its KiwiBuild policy into naked welfare for housing speculators.

We then take your questions in our “Concerned Comrades” segment. If you want to submit a question anonymously, please do so through our curiouscat: curiouscat.me/pplspolitburo

In “Snitch the Sitch”, we reflect on our experiences organising around trying to get cops and screws out of the Auckland Pride Parade. Those experiences include a security guard breaking Emmy’s arm.

Finally, in “Come in my Library”, we read a blast from the past — a reading from one of our greatest class enemies.

As Mao Zedong teaches, revolutionaries are like fish and the people are our water. If you want to kick us a cup of the good sh*t and keep us from suffocating, consider supporting the show on Patreon: www.patreon.com/peoplespolitburo
