Interview with our comrade P@ulie on 3CR Monday Breakfast

You can listen to our comrade P@ulie being interviewed on 3CR Monday Breakfast here. The interview starts at the 37 minute mark and goes for about 10 minutes. P@ulie touches on: the philosophy of anarchism; the life and death of Francesco Fantin; the Fantin Reading Group; the Direct Action Collective; and the influence of anarchist principles on the Occupy movement. With thanks to our friends at 3CR Community Radio (855AM, on digital radio and online). Happy listening!
