This week Jamieson is joined by writer and activist Jonathon Shafi, to discuss the scale of the unfolding crisis, and the forms that inevitable resistance will take.

They discuss:

1:00 – Several weeks into lockdown, what picture of the crisis do we now have? How severe is it, and what is the next major turn in governing policy?

6:41 – What might emerging forms of resistance during the economic crisis look like?

13:44 – With both the EU and the US badly impacted by the pandemic and economic crisis, is Britain’s position, wedged between these two spheres, even more confused and chaotic?

23:30 – What is the shape of the social movements that will emerge in this period, given that both the Corbyn moment in Labour and the Sanders movement in the US have passed?
