Historical Context for the Syrian Civil War and Crack Downs on Radical Spaces in Oakland

In this episode we dig into the historical context of what’s going on in Aleppo with the help of Bassam Haddad, the Director of the Middle East and Islamic Studies program at George Mason University, and Richard Becker, author, journalist and anti-war activist.

Then we talk with representatives Qilombo, a radical community social center in Oakland, about city crack downs on warehouse spaces after the Ghostship fire.
