Which Side: A Vegan Anarchist Podcast (general)

Episode 225: We talk with Jonathan Levy the Zero Waste Guy.

Leading up to college, Jonathan always knew that he wanted to major in Business, but did not know in which area to focus. It was not until he took Managerial Statistics that he found his calling. From measuring movements to reduce bottlenecks to analyzing large swaths of data using linear regression, majoring in Supply Chain Management just made sense.

After college, Jonathan found himself in the Industrial Engineering department at UPS as well as Engineering and Facilities at Target, managing teams while optimizing their supply chains. There was, however, one recurring theme that he just could not wrap his head around: most of today’s supply chains are linear. With constraints aimed at minimizing cost and/or maximizing revenue, little time is spent focusing on creating a zero waste, circular supply chain.

In 2013, Jonathan was introduced to the California Resource Recovery Association where he earned a certificate in sustainable resource management. Since then he has worked with a variety of haulers and organizations on recycling and organics diversion projects, including Republic Services, NASA Services, Los Angeles Unified School District, Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department and Los Angeles County Department of Public Works. When he is not greening businesses he is constantly looking for new ways to zero waste his life.

Episode 224: We talk with Jude of the Tilted Scales Collective.

Tilted Scales Collective is a small collective of dedicated legal support organizers who have spent years supporting and fighting for political prisoners, prisoners of war, and politicized prisoners in the occupied lands of Turtle Island (i.e., the so-called united states).

In A Tilted Guide to Being a Defendant, The Tilted Scales Collective presents a comprehensive guide to facing charges in the criminal legal system to help defendants not only figure out how to handle their legal cases, but also how to think about their cases. Rather than being a how-to guide, this book offers a way of thinking about criminal charges that is based on defendants' goals: personal, political, and legal. This book was written by dedicated legal support activists and draws on the wisdom of dozens of people who have weathered the challenges of trials and incarceration.

Our Side:

In this week's segment, we hear a piece from sub.media called SYRIA & ROJAVA: A TALE OF TWO REVOLUTIONS. In this report, they look at anarchists sometimes uncritical approach towards the Rojavan Revolution and consider Arab opposition to the Kurd’s plans to link their three liberated cantons. #fsd

Technology, from the controlled use of fire way back when, to the controlled use of SMART technology today; including the up and coming internet of things, it ought to be clear to all of us that technology is definitely not neutral. It's use has always been to control and oppress. Death by Convenience. And for those who claim that the government never listen, that's not true. The NSA and GCHQ love to listen!

Episode 222: We talk with Julie Herrada from Marius Mason's support crew.

Marius Mason is an anarchist, environmental and animal rights activist currently serving nearly 22 years in federal prison for acts of property damage carried out in defense of the planet. After being threatened with a life sentence in 2009 for these acts of sabotage, he pled guilty to arson charges at a Michigan State University lab researching genetically modified organisms for Monsanto, and admitted to 12 other acts of property damage. No one was physically harmed in these actions. At sentencing the judge applied a so-called “terrorism enhancement,” adding almost two years to an already extreme sentence requested by the prosecution. This is the harshest punishment of anyone convicted of environmental sabotage to date.

Episode 220: We talk with Julia Feliz; author of the vegan children's book Libby Finds Vegan Sanctuary.

About the book:

The first board book for little vegan readers! Libby Finds Vegan Sanctuary is the story of how a turkey inspires compassion and ultimately, finds safety. Through colorful pages and a simple story fit for little hands, the board book helps young children understand the meaning of sanctuary and lightly explores the idea of choosing to prevent harm of other living beings. The story is based on a real life rescued turkey, Libby, who lives in a farm animal sanctuary in Florida.

Episode 219: We talk with Robert Grillo; founder and director or Free from Harm & author of the book Farm to Fable.

From the book:

Why do the vast majority of us continue to consume animals when we could choose otherwise? What are the cultural forces that drive our food choices? These are the fundamental questions Farm to Fable seeks to answer in two ways: by asserting that our beliefs about eating animals remain largely unexamined and therefore unchallenged, and by demonstrating how the fictions of popular culture continually reinforce these beliefs and behaviors. Farm to Fable deconstructs these fictions for those who truly want to know not only where our food comes from, but also why we make the choices that we do. For seasoned animal advocates as well, this book will provide important insights.

Episode 218: We talk with Smaragda Louw of the Ban Animal Trading - South Africa.

Ban Animal Trading is a non profit company, based in Gauteng. BAT focuses on local investigations into various forms of animal abuse and neglect. BAT also deals with educational outreach to help South Africans understand animal rights. BAT does not support illegal activism and prides itself on working closely with SAPS, the NSPCA and local council committees.

BAT is committed to confronting and eradicating animal exploitation and abuse in all industries that benefit from the misery and suffering of sentient creatures. Compassion in Action is the slogan we live by, and our varied campaigns serve to provide our passionate and heroic supporters with a platform upon which to become directly involved in taking action and, in so doing, bringing about change to prevailing norms and standards as well as to outdated and inappropriate legislation. BAT views ongoing educational initiatives as the most crucial mechanism by which to achieve real progress and maintain real change. When people know better, they do better, and when they do better, they become the catalysts for real change in society.

Episode Sponsor: This weeks episode is sponsored by you the listener... helping out the #disruptj20 legal fund:

Trump's inauguration was met with the most militant, diverse protests DC has seen in over a decade, with blockades that shut down more than half of the security checkpoints and multiple massive marches both permitted and unpermitted taking the streets. Over 200 of our comrades were swept up in a mass arrest, many tear gassed and pepper sprayed before spending the night in jail. Please help support those who put their bodies on the line.

Grab a Make Racists Afraid Again shirt from the Which Side Media Collective and help support the #DisruptJ20 Legal Fund.

Episode 217: We talk with Rebecca Buck of the Eric King Support Crew.

Eric G. King, a 30-year-old vegan anarchist, was arrested and charged with an attempted firebombing of a government official’s office in Kansas City, MO in September 2014. Eric was being charged with throwing a hammer through a window of the building, followed by two lit Molotov cocktails. The criminal complaint states that both incendiary devices failed to ignite. Eric was identified as a suspect by local police because he had previously come under suspicion for anti-government and anti-police graffiti.

On March 3, 2016, he accepted a non-cooperating plea agreement to one count of using “explosive materials to commit arson of property used in or affecting interstate commerce.”Then almost three months later on June 28th, at the federal courthouse in Kansas City, Missouri. Eric King was sentenced to ten years, the statutory minimum and maximum for the charge he plead guilty to. His release date is June 2nd, 2023.

Since his arrest and subsequent incarceration, he has been extremely isolated from his loved ones and has repeatedly been targeted by the guards, who have regularly put his safety in jeopardy. At CCA Leavenworth where Eric was held in pretrial detention, he was kept in segregation for 6 months at one point and was often subjected to stints in “the hole” after the guards targeted him. Despite these struggles, he continues to maintain his good spirits and resolve to see this situation through to the end. He is also maintaining his dedication to struggling for a world free of domination and oppression.
