This week journalist and artist Molly Crabapple (@mollycrabapple) drops by to talk Puerto Rico, SESTA/FOSTA, and much more.
Jamie and Molly’s shared past as members of anarcha-feminist workers’ cooperative SuicideGirls.com - haha. Another in the ongoing series ‘This Week In Musk’. Sex workers as a rising voice within the political sphere.
(Big shout out to www.lysistratamccf.org, www.blacksexworkercollective.org, https://survivorsagainstsesta.org and sex workers everywhere fighting for safety and dignity!)
Deep dive into the legacy of colonialism, debt, crisis and austerity in Puerto Rico. What lessons can the mainland/international left take from Hurricane Maria and its aftermath? Will the island’s future be austerity and privatization… or mutual aid and resistance?
