‘Big Brick Energy,’ Looking Back on the Nation Wide George Floyd Uprising

On this episode, we are joined by members of Unity and Struggle, who discuss their recent analysis piece, Big Brick Energy, and look back on the nation wide uprising that kicked off following the police murder of George Floyd. We discuss what the media got wrong, the role and impact of conspiracy theories, the State’s attempts to crush the uprising with everything from recuperation, curfews, to the national guard, and the real limits that the rebellion hit after sweeping across the US in 2020.
