This week, we feature audio that made it's way to us from the Slovenian anarchist radio show, črna luknja (Black Hole). Hosts interviewed Hana, who's originally from Mostar but lives now in Sarajevo. Hana tells of her perspectives on the protests and public plenums that occurred in Bosnia in response to the government ignoring workers and voters demands and continued to privatize industry while further precariatizing (is that a word?) the population.

You can find more material by črna luknja (mostly NOT in english) at
