This is the slightly edited audio from a livestream conversation we had with Max Ajl on the morning of October 17th. This conversation was held on our new YouTube channel and we’ll include a link to that in the show notes. We encourage folks to head over there to subscribe to the channel and turn on notifications for all episodes so that you don’t miss any of our livestreams. We held three livestreams this past week the one you’re about to hear, one with Morgan Artyukhina, and a third one with Decolonize Palestine. We also are planning to release at least four new livestreams this coming week so make sure you check those out as well.
We will eventually get these all edited and released as podcasts, but in the meantime you can head over to our YouTube channel and watch and listen to any of them in full unedited fashion.
We mobilized to have these conversations to help folks find the clarity they need to act and act in a strategic and decisive manner in these times.
Max Ajl is a friend of the show and has been on multiple times now.
He is an educator and a researcher and the author of A People’s Green New Deal, which we highly recommend and had a previous discussion of back in 2021. We also recently hosted him for a two-part series on theories of political ecology. He is also the associate editor of Agrarian South: Journal of Political Economy.
In this discussion we talk to him about his time in Gaza, about the notion of so-called non-violent resistance within a Palestinian context, about key dynamics to pay attention to in the coming weeks, and understanding Palestinian Liberation as a key component of the world we want to bring about.
As I’ve mentioned before, adding video content to the audio content we’re producing on a weekly basis is a major lift in terms of our labor commitment to the podcast. We will also need to bring on some additional support to make it sustainable over time. Which also means that we need your support. If you appreciate the work that we do and find it useful then kick in something to our patreon. You can join for as little as $1 a month and of course we encourage folks to do more than that if they are able to do so. Our patreon is patreon.com/millennialsarekillingcapitalism
