This week on Coffee with Comrades, we celebrate our two-year anniversary by sharing a conversation with two community-organizers on the ground in the Twin Cities, Jessica and Cameron. We talk about Jessica and Cameron’s experiences in the recent uprising that has swept across the nation. We cover a lot of ground in this interview, including the siege of the Third Police Precinct in Minneapolis, mutual aid efforts, the efficacy and ethics of looting, and the power of solidarity in these ensuing crises.
