State Repression in Changing Terrain: An Interview with Lauren Regan from the Civil Liberties Defense Center

On this episode of the It’s Going Down podcast, we again speak with Lauren Regan of the Civil Liberties Defense Center (CLDC), about the changing face of State repression as the new administration takes power and the push by various forces to paint protest as “domestic terrorism.”

We cover a lot of ground in this discussion, from talking about a wave of anti-protest bills being pushed in various states, how policing is rushing to keep up with technology, to the repression that followed the George Floyd rebellion last summer, and the impact of the pro-Trump coup attempt in Washington DC on January 6th.

Offering insight and historical context, Regan addresses the current push to ramp up State surveillance against “extremists” while also talking about what social movements from below can do to organize against attacks on civil liberties and basic freedoms.
