Revolutionary Abolitionist RadioHosted by Sergio Castillo.
It is only through conflict that change occurs. Society cannot evolve if the art of the dialectic is entirely in the hands of those who abuse it or are completely ignorant of it. Revolutionary Abolitionist Radio is an attempt to give a platform to marginalized people and communities in order to forward conversations on controversial topics and for audiences to hear the voices and perspectives of modern artists in all disciplines to understand our multicultural society beyond political rhetoric. Art is the ideological expression of the world in the poet’s mind.
But it is also completely understood that liberation for the masses will not come within an imperialist-capitalist social context or power structure. It is only through solidarity and revolutionary struggle against capitalism, racism, patriarchy, classism, and the state itself that freedom and liberation will emerge. Creating communities of struggle is essential to free many, if not all, worlds.
