So, there is going to be a bunch of interviews with Extinction Rebellion Manchester people, on the following questions –
1. Who are you, why did you get involved, what have you done in Mcr and in London
2. How can XR be more inclusive, address legitimate race/class concerns
3. What skills, knowledge, relationships do you think XR ppl need to cultivate in the short term?
4. Given that intense activity is unsustainable (emotionally, physically, practically), how does XR Mcr plan to sustain radical action over the summer?
5. What can so-called “non-arrestable” people do?
6. How does XR plan to cope with the “Tyranny of Structurelessness” identified by Jo Freeman?
7. Anything else you’d like to say. Ppl can skip qs, and I won’t edit answers (unless there is libel etc).
If you want to read an incredible (non-XR) interview, this
