Smash the State Report: Aug. 10, 2012, part two

August 10th 2012 – In this week’s Smash the State we feature a two part show, with this one featuring an ACAB report and an update on the Red Square revolt in Quebec.  We have articles looking at undercover pigs in England fathering children with activists, running away from those responsibilities, then stalking the child and mother for the following years; the announcement that new York city wont support the pepper-spraying cop who attacked caged women; and a report on the murder of a refugee by Lethbridge cops.

The report then looks at a piece showing bullying by toronto police at a neighbourhood assembly in toronto, which also shows how the TPS benefit when kids shoot each other. And we read the disgusting story of a cop who will not spend time in jail for having sex with a 15 year old girl he got drunk and high with.

We then shift to an update about the Quebec student/social strike, with a piece from @TeamCarmelle on neighbourhood assemblies, and another talking about the convergence and the stopping the restarting of classes.

The revolutionary musical interludes this week included propaghandi's failed statesand there is also a communiqué from the anti-capitalist, pro-community invisible army of defaulters.

 Smash the State Report is a segment on the weekly 2 hour AW@L radio (16:00-18:00est) on CKMS 100.3  - Community * Co-op * Campus Radio - Waterloo -
