Episode 103: Islands of Anarchy

We continue the theme of anarchism and duel power building by reviewing the policies of direct democracy and the movements that make them happen. We cover ongoing rent strikes and a delivery coop that localizes what delivery apps do. We cover Participatory budgeting, the integration of neighborhood associations in Portland’s government; and the governance structures of Communalist Rojava. But as these just islands in rough oceans, never to be calmed? Music Used: Goodbye Apathy, by One Republic
