16 EpisodesProduced by From Below PodcastWebsite

A leftist podcast on social movements and international politics from a libertarian socialist perspective produced by members of Black Rose/Rosa Negra Anarchist Federation.


Introducing Markie and Pedro

Hosts Markie and Pedro start the episode introducing the goals and themes of the podcast and then interview each other on their personal stories of how they became politically active. 

Pedro talks about growing up in a religious school in rural Brazil, reading figures like Bakunin and Malatesta in the public library of Rio de Janeiro, and finding himself working in a chocolate factory after he came to the US. Markie discusses watching 9/11 on television as a key political moment for her, attending anti-war marches with her uncle and becoming involved politically as a working class community student in East Los Angeles.
