On episode 261 we discuss violence and the state, as well as bringing you some speeches from the Invasion Day rally in Melbourne Kulin Nations. One thing we didnt do was define the state but what we are talking about there is not just the government but also the police, prison system, court system etc. We discuss the broader definition of violence in the context of family violence and whether or not it can be applied to the state generally and prisons specifically. The speeches we play from Invasion Day are by Greens politician Lidia Thorpe and historian Gary Foley. This audio is from 3CR Community Radio and you can listen to the full rally via their website: You can sign the petition promoted at this rally, calling on the Prime Minister to meet with families whose loved ones have died in custody for 30th anniversary of Royal Commission: Nick has set up a new Twitter account where he simply posts the song that he is most enjoying that day. Follow that account @NicksSong and you can also follow the Spotify playlist Song of the Day by NicksSong: For more information on this episode and for links to all of the stories and clips from it, go to:
