  1. Audio Interference 77.6: Archiving Abolition—A Quarter of a Century

    Comments Off on Audio Interference 77.6: Archiving Abolition—A Quarter of a Century

    Hello comrades,

    In this episode, we hear “A Quarter of a Century,” a song by Ivie, a comrade on the inside whose story is uplifted by Survived and Punished. It references her campaign to free herself from a 25 to life sentence and was recorded over the phone from Bedford Hills prison, a maximum security correctional facility in Bedford Hills, NY. In the middle of the song, you’ll hear an accompanying rap by another comrade, Sassi, who is also incarcerated at Bedford Hills. Click here to read the song lyrics.

    The episode stems from a collaboration with Survived and Punished New York, a grassroots, abolitionist group that works to eradicate the criminalization of survivors of domestic and sexual violence, and the culture of violence that contributes to it.

    Prison walls create barriers to communication. Through our collaboration, we’re bridging this information gap by sharing the experiences of folks on the inside with those on the outside, as well as archiving Survived & Punished’s organizing strategies to free all who are incarcerated.

    A huge thank you to Ivie and Sassi for sharing their song with us. We’d also like to thank Lae Sway, Yves Tong Nguyen, Heena, Zoe Vongtau, Red Schulte, Martina Abrahams Ilunga, and Mariah Hill, along with everyone else at Survived & Punished, for working with us on this episode. To learn more about Survived and Punished, visit their website, www.survivedandpunishedny.org.

    If you haven’t already, we encourage you to listen to the other responses from folks inside that are part of this series. We also published an in-depth interview with folks from Survived & Punished about their work. To listen, find us on itunes, stitcher, or wherever you get your podcasts: www.audiointerference.org

    “We don’t want to have to put up ghost bikes anymore.”

    27 cyclists were killed in New York City in 2019, more than twice as many as in 2018. In this episode of Audio Interference, we speak with volunteers Ellen Belcher and Steve Scofield from the New York City chapter of Ghost Bikes, who install street memorials for cyclists who have been killed in traffic violence. We travel with them up to 125th to install a bike and learn about the history and current movement of Ghost Bikes. For more information on the memorials in NYC and around the world, check out their website.

    Thank you to Steve Scofield and Ellen Belcher for speaking with us. To learn more about the 27 cyclists who lost their lives in 2019, we recommend this profile by Gothamist.

    In this episode of Audio Interference, we speak with Vanessa Nosie, activist, and Carrie Curley, activist and artist, about the Apache Stronghold and their spiritual movement to protect Oak Flat from the foreign mining company Resolution Copper. 

    A huge thank you to Carrie Curley, Vanessa Nosie, Naelyn Pike, Wendsler Nosie, and the Apache Stronghold for their important and determined fight to protect their land, and for the important message this has for indigneous communities around the world, and for all communities, regarding the way we should respect and relate to our land, environment, and to each other. Thank you Amy Harwood for your support and audio from the walk that is part of this episode. Thank you Cruz for your production help. 

    We encourage you to call your Senators and Representatives to be sure they support the protection of sacred sites. Ask them to sign on as sponsors of the Save Oak Flat Act, which would repeal the land exchange bill.
