The State, the Virus, the far-Right: How Can Anti-Authoritarians Intervene?

Anarchist radio and podcast show, From Embers, presents a talk from Dr. Alex Khasnabish on a critical look at State and far-Right responses to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Writer, researcher and teacher Dr. Alex Khasnabish talks about a recent workshop he gave at the Halifax Anarchist Bookfair called, “You Can’t Police Yourself Out of a Pandemic: Anti-Authoritarian Strategies in an Age of Crisis.”

We discuss both State and far-Right responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, some of the tensions surrounding vaccination, anti-authoritarian strategies for collective care, and questions about where to go from here.

In the later part of the episode, Alex briefly references an article he wrote for Roar magazine entitled “From White Fragility to White Power in the Age of COVID-19,” – you can read it here.
