Voices Radio: Jonah Raskin and NO MTA Police Expansion
In this episode of Voices from the Frontlines, Eric Mann talks with Jonah Raskin, a long-time comrade and friend, marijuana author and advocate. Raskin is a veteran of the Civil Rights Movement, the Ban the Bomb Movement, the environmental movements, the anti-imperialist movements. Eric and Jonah were both active with the Weather aboveground organization and discus the lessons from their own perspective in support of Black Liberation and against the Vietnam War and U.S. imperialism. Jonah wrote Out of the Whale: Growing up in the American Left and Eric wrote Comrade George: An Investigation into the Life, Political Thought, and Assassination of George Jackson.
“We want a world without cars, without police pretty much. With a lot of Black and Latino people being able to breathe politically and biologically, as well.””
