No Quarter Buffalo

No Quarter Buffalo

By No Quarter
No Quarter is an anti-fascist podcast created in so-called Buffalo, NY. We are anti-racist, anti-colonial, feminist, revolutionary, leftist, and egalitarian. We provide a platform for promoting local direct actions and movements for progressive change, and we connect those efforts to national and international movements.

So-called Buffalo is located in the original territory of the Seneca Nation, a member of the Haudenosaunee Six Nations Confederacy. This territory is covered by The Dish with One Spoon Treaty of Peace and Friendship. This region is still the home of the Haudenosaunee people.

Salud Comrades!
Our inaugural episode begins with Bean's rundown of anti-fascist news from in and around Western New York.  Rawlf then turns to journalist Debbie Bookchin to learn about the revolutionary anarcho-communist movement in Rojava in Syria.  Next is Bean's analysis of accessibility during anti-fascist events, and we close with a lively discussion about--what else--Andrew Cuomo's sharp elbowed rise and fast descent.  ********* Connect with the Buffalo-area anti-fascist network! ********* Support Rojava! Follow Debbie Bookchin on Twitter, and stay informed through the Rojava Information Center. Learn how you can help through Defend Rojava.  You can also follow them on Facebook.

The New York Time's Daily podcast covers some of the same ground in an interview with journalist Shane Goldmacher. The Intercept reports on how the Working Families Party has risen up from the Cuomo's Sasquatch effort.  ******** Please please please subscribe and review our podcast on Itunes, because, you know - algorithms.   Follow us on Instagram: noquarterbuffalo  and Facebook: noquarterbuffalo and  Twitter @noquarterbuff Now go get some sunshine.
