Episode #23: Talking Capital Gain$ with our Swoletariat Friends

This fortnight we have a special guest host Ricardo Mendendez-March (@RMarchNZ on twitter). Ricardo is a returning friend of the show from episode two. Ricardo is the coordinator at Auckland Action Against Poverty. You can find out more about AAAP here: www.aaap.org.nz/

We got Ricardo on especially to talk about the capital gains tax and the Labour Party’s treasonous refusal to implement one. In this fortnight’s segment of “the Labour Party is not your Friend”, we’re spitting fire, talking serious sheet about the Labour party’s latest betrayals.

In “Concerned Comrades”, we talk about the budget responsibility rules, Stuart McCutcheon, and organising through burnout.

Ricardo snitches the sitch with us, letting us know what’s happening with AAAP.

Finally, we read a truly incredible piece about the human rights commission. Enjoy comrades!

Episode #21: The Christchurch Mosque Attacks – Mourning, Reflection, Organising

In this episode, we reflect on the Christchurch Mosque Attacks. We talk about the context of Islamophobia in which the attack occurred, the responses to it, and what it means for our organising going forward. This is not a usual episode of the podcast. Don’t expect jokes. We simply provide our open and honest reflection on the most horrific terrorist attack in modern New Zealand history.
