System Fail #16: Burning The Binary

SubMedia returns with a new episode of System Fail, which looks at global news from an anarchist perspective.

In the 16th episode of System Fail we take a look at the, let’s say, unorthodox hobbies of Brazil’s president Jair Bolsonaro.

Meanwhile, something stinks in the Baltic sea.

Later Dee laments on the human inability to efficiently process binary data. As many humans fixate on the imperialist anti-imperialist binary they have ended up reducing complicated struggles into state-centric dichotomies.

Which brings us to Iran where protests over the state murder of Zhina Amini have entered their 4th week with no signs of slowing down and state forces have ramped up their repression.

Finally we cover the latest prison strike in the US where members of the Free Alabama Movement have coordinated a work stoppage of thousands of prisoners across multiple facilities.
