For our first episode, released on International Women's Day 2019, Markie and Pedro discuss two examples of anti-capitalist feminism. The discussion starts around the work of the Anti-Capitalist Feminist Coalition (ACFC) in Los Angeles with Markie speaking on her involvement and then interviewing Romina Green of Black Rose/Rosa Negra Los Angles on the background and roots of ACFC. Next is an interview and in-depth discussion with Alondra Carrillo of Santiago, Chile who is a vocera, or spokesperson, for the March 8 Feminist General Strike Coordination. Alondra is also a member of the libertarian communist organization, Solidaridad.
