This Is America #95: Brooklyn Takes to the Streets, FBI’s “Iron Fist” Exposed

Welcome, to This Is America, November 8th, 2019.

In this episode, we were lucky enough to speak to an organizer in New York about the explosion of anger on the streets of Brooklyn following weeks of high profile police shootings and brutality on mass transit, as well as ongoing campaigns such as #NoNewJails and #SwipeItForward. We discuss how this growing abolitionist organizing has informed the building anger in the streets as well as the legacy of broken windows policing, and connections between gentrification and counter-insurgency.

We then switch to a discussion, where we touch on recent Alt-Right debacles, the newly exposed “Iron First” program aimed at Black liberation organizers, and end on the evolving impeachment crisis.
