This week we're featuring more segments from other audio projects.
Property is theft. In context of this, the far right has been organizing
a call-out for anti-immigrant demonstrations across Europe for February
6th. In response, immigrant solidarity, anti-border and anti-racist
groups are organizing a show of force against the xenophobic right.

Firstly, we'll listen to a five minute segment recorded by Crna
Luknja, or Black Hole in the Slovene language. Crna Luknja is an
anarchist radio show on Radio Student in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The
audio is an interview with folks at the self-organized refugee squat
called Orfanotrofeio in Thessaloniki in Greece. It tells the story of
the refugees and activists and their struggle to organize and hold the
squat against efforts by the police and the Greek Orthodox Church.

Next, Anarchistisches Radio Berlin held an interview with an
anarchist member of the Passe Livre movement in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The
Passe Livre movement is an autonomous movement pushing for the
foundation of free mass transit. The weight of an increase of cost of
transportation falls mostly on the poor and differently abled folks who
don't have cars and frequently must travel long distances between their
homes and employment, when they're able to get it. In 2005 the Passe
Livre movement began, trying to spread toll hopping and other direct
action tactics and has continued for 11 years in various forms. The
conversation covers changes in tactics, responses to repression and some
of the cityscape of Sao Paulo, including the recent school occupations
by students and other "Rights to the City" struggles such as squatting
and anti-gentrification movements.

Lastly we'll hear is a segment recorded again by A-Radio Berlin out
of Germany. The audio is a recording of part of a presentation by Cilip
magazine of Kate Wilson, a long-time anarchist and activist from the
U.K. about her longterm friendship and romantic relationship with Mark
Kennedy, an undercover police officer who had infiltrated protest groups
between 2003 and 2010, when he was unmasked.

During the half hour, Kate talks about the infiltration, the
difficulty of finding out and verifying his capacity as an undercover
cop and agent provocateur, of losing a trusted friend and confidant and
some lessons she's taken from the betrayal.
