This week on the show, we'll hear several pieces from our comrades at
ARadio Berlin. Anarchistiche Radio Berlin is an anarchist radio project
which has been active since 2009, and conducts interviews with anarchists
and activists all around Europe on a wide variety of topics and in a
variety of languages The first segment is one of their latest
English-language posts and is an interview with 2 members of the NOTAPA 26,
a squatted immigrant center organized in a large part by anarchists.
NOTAPA 26 is situated in the Exarchia neighborhood of Athens, Greece, a
neighborhood that has had a longstanding anarchist and anti-authoritarian
flavor and is frequently a no-go zone for police and reactionaries like
skinheads and members of the Golden Dawn party.

In the 12 minute segment, the interviewees talk about anarchist squats,
solidarity with immigrants and refugees, and the policies of the Syriza
government in Greece. More on NOTAPA 26, which can also be spelled in
English as NOTARA 26, can be found at http://www.notara26.info/blog/ and
they can also be followed on Twitter.

The second, half-hour-long segment was an interview conducted by our
friends at A-Radio Berlin with 2 members of the newly formed Alustra
Anarchist Federation in Finland. The conversation happened at the
Anarchist Bookfaire in Tallin, Estonia, this year and ranges over topics
from anarchist involvement in the recent General Strike in Finland, the
ideas and goals of the federation and the rise of the far right as the
government pushes austerity measures. More on the project can be found at

Next week, stay tuned for an interview with Gary about the fast approaching
January 22nd day of solidarity with transgender prisoners. We'll be talking
about the realities that trans people face in prison, and the importance of
having a day of solidarity which is specific to trans people, among many
other topics. January 22nd was recently called for by Marius Mason, a
"green scare" prisoner and transgender man incarcerated at FMC Carswell in
Fort Worth, Texas. To get a jump start on learning about this day of
solidarity, and to start fomenting ideas for actions or events in your
area, you can visit the website http://supportmariusmason.org/ and read the
first blog post which comes up.

Those located in Asheville might consider getting involved with the
Tranzmission Prison Project, a books to prisoners program which focuses
only on LGBT prisoners. This project is decades strong and sends packages
into prisons all over the United States. To get involved, stop by Downtown
Books and News at 67 N Lexington Avenue on Sundays from 3-5pm and folks
will be there to answer questions and to get you started.

Also, on January 30th there will be a benefit concert at the Odditorium to
help The Final Straw Radio attend an International Anarchist Radio
Gathering this spring in Europe. The concert will feature local metal and
punk projects Autarch, Asherah, Lacrymosa and Desperate Measure. The show
starts at 9pm and more information can be found on fedbook by searching the
title "Resistance in the air: a benefit for local anarchist radio show".
