Community and Autonomy: Migrants in Greece

December 16, 2020

Feeling lonely? As the first round of vaccines rolls into Canada, a yearning for the revitalization of social relations long severed and strangulated by the social distancing and confinement required to fight COVID-19 grows stronger. But what kinds of social relations are we going to build now and commit to the future? What can we build together in the face of crisis at home or abroad? In this episode, Kiegan Irish and Alex Boos are joined by friends Ryan Faulkner and Héloïse Muller to discuss how community organizing in Greece has handled one of the EU’s worst economic crises and the growing “refugee crisis” and to walk us through their experiences volunteering for autonomous zones in Greece.
