Harsh Mander - On India's Protests, Violence against Muslims & The Poor, and Radical Love

I spoke w. organizer Harsh Mander on his efforts to help India's poor and Muslim communities, who have endured unspeakable violence from Narendra Modi's government. We discuss Covid-19 impact on India's migrant workforce, the violence India's Muslims have faced, and how despite this hatred and the state targeting him with prosecution for his organizing, Harsh maintains a philosophy of 'radical love' .  Other topics include:  Anarchism vs. Social Democracy, leaders, and how the Black Lives Matter protests are being viewed within India.  For more with Harsh, simply search the internet, he's all over!
