This Sunday we were joined in Studio by members of the Miami Committee on State Violence (MCSV).
Over the past many months, issues of state violence in America have been fervently bubbling to the surface. Protests have erupted around the country and globe. Questions are now being asked about how this moment in time, and how this movement for social justice will affect our generation and the reality in which we live. Many are asking themselves – what can we/should we expect of ourselves, our communities and our larger political and state structures as we move forward. With that in mind, this week on RadioActive, we attempted to open a space for critical dialogue on the current movement for social justice. Our conversation included: What is state violence, what the MCSV is working to accomplish, the history of resistance in the US and South Florida, disruption and protest as valid forms social change, the militarization and finally the need to revive diverse forms of political engagement. Thank you to our listeners for engaging in the conversation. It is one we hope to continue in the new year.
