Defund the Police

In Episode 58, I talk about the recent protests in Canada and the United States against police racism and violence towards Black and Indigenous peoples, set in motion by the video showing the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis Police officers. This episode is a synthesis of my recent publications on police racism, brutality, sexualized violence and killings of Black and Indigenous peoples and the calls to defund the police.
