Interference Archive has been hosting a series of Propaganda Parties: events where we distribute free materials like posters and stickers, created by contemporary artists in response to current struggles. On March 5, we hosted an event called “Building Resistance.” Radio Free Gowanus, our neighborhood pirate radio station, broadcast live throughout the afternoon. In this episode, we’re sharing some of the highlights from the event, as Mike Clemow talks to our community about what it means to build resistance.
This episode includes excerpts from interviews with: Womens March Action Club, Roxanne & Andrea, Raven Cras, Ola Ronke, Justin & Nicole, Amy Khoshbin, and Nora Almeida. To learn more about some of the projects mentioned in this episode, check out the Free Black Womens Library (thefreeblackwomanslibrary.tumblr.com), the Center for Anti-Violence Education (caeny.org), or Self-Care After A Fuhk Boi (www.selfcareafb.com). The full interviews can be heard at www.radiofreegowanus.org.
All the songs in this episode were included on a playlist created by Eric Kjensrud for our previous exhibition, Finally Got the News. Songs include: Allen Toussaint, “Victims of the Darkness;” Earth, Wind & Fire, “C’mon Children;” The Staple Singers, “I’ll Take You There;” Bob Marley & The Wailers, “Get Up, Stand Up;” Curtis Mayfield, “Right On For the Darkness;” The Honeydrippers, “Impeach the President.”
