This week we bring you an exclusive report on the pandemic that’s infecting the globe. Insurrecto-Riotosis. The first wave of the pandemic was reported in the city of Nantes in France following the police murder of 21 year old eco-defender Rémi Fraisse.
This contagion quickly spread to Belgium where 100,000 peeps hit the streets in Brussels to show their anger to a proposed package of austerity cuts.
In Mexico, insurrecto-riotisis is quickly turning into a full-fledged pandemic, as protests demanding the safe return of 43 students kidnapped on September 26th continue to escalate dramatically.
Also, Wal-Mart employees in Los Angeles staged their first-ever sit-down strike against the mammoth retail giant.
And all over Turtles Island, a massive fight-back against sexual violence and rape culture has blown up over social media.
On the music break, a killer mash up of Keny Arkana’s “La Rage” by DAM.
And this week we feature an interview with Andalusia Knoll, a journalist with the autonomous media collective “Subversiones” who breaks down the who, when, what, why, how of the insurrection in Mexico.

November 19, 2014, St. Louis, MO
Which side are you on?
Demonstrators gathered on November 17, 2014 in Clayton, MO--a suburb of St. Louis that happens to be the seat of economic and political power for the city. It is in Clayton that real systemic and institutional action could challenge white supremacy and end racism. Clayton is where St. Louis County Police Department Chief Jon Belmar works, prosecutor Bob McCulloch works over the grand jury, and is the home to many wealthy donors with an interest in maintaining the status quo.
The Injustice Freak Show had many components: a big baby, wonderful banners of Governor Jay Nixon and officer Darren Wilson, balloons, a wailing woman, scared white people, black youth demanding systemic change, plenty of police, and people to boot. The group of maybe a few hundred worked to shut parts of Clayton down with success.
The action, organized by many different groups, happened on the 101st day since the murder of Michael Brown by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.
St. Louis--It's been 100 days since the murder of unarmed, black, 18-year old Michael Brown.
He was shot and killed by officer Darren Wilson.
Tribe X organized a die-in on November 16, 2014 at the Delmar Loop in St. Louis to commemorate this inauspicious occasion. This was a pre-emptive action before the Missouri was placed in a state of emergency by Governor Jay Nixon and news of the indictment or non-indictment came down.
No justice, no peace. Fists up! Fight back!
For the past four years we have visiting the Unist’ot’en camp and since then, we just can’t shut up about them. Why? Because their form of protest is beyond words and it’s manifested in direct action. They have created a real physical wall of opposition to all the proposed pipelines that could bring oil from the tar sands and fracked gas to world market in the Pacific ocean. We introduced them to the world with our “Oil Gateway” video back in 2011, and then with “The Action Camp” in 2012. We are now pleased to share with you our third mini-doc about them “Chokepoint: How to Stop a Pipeline” which we made for Al Jazeera’s AJ+.

I have been developing a way to help local people in 3rd world countries communicate their present situation through positive web-series for many years.
I am currently working on a project in Sri Lanka. I am making a fun, interesting, web series to show a side of the country that tourists wouldn't usually get a chance to see — hopefully inspiring visitors to have an open heart towards local people. At the same time I am a volunteer teacher in schools and orphanages. I also give travel advice and information.
Through this web-series I hope to develop a greater understanding and empathy between people from different cultures and transcend common contemporary problems by giving the local people a chance to tell us about their point of view in an objective manner.
This week, we look at the fierce militant protests against Columbus Day by the indigenous Mapuche nation in so called Chile. Also the uncompromising resistance of Normalista students who have nearly brought the Mexican government to its knees, as they demand the safe return of their 43 kidnapped comrades. In Kobane we learn how an anarchist inspired Kurdish liberation movement has kicked out ISIS out of their liberated zone, and it was done with the efforts of the women’s brigade of the YPJ. On the music break Philippino MC Bambu with Rocky Rivera with their working class anthem, “Rent Money.” Finally we interview Maude from Tache D’Huile about the troubling practice of oil companies to ship their dirty fuels by train.
Greetings troublemakers! In case you didn’t know, since 2003 subMedia.tv has been cranking out anarchist films and agit-prop videos. This December we will drop the long awaited “subMedia.tv: A Decade of subversion” video in that vintage format known as DVD, as well as online.
Many of our films are translated into several languages. We want more! If you speak a language other that English and would be down to do this, shoot us an email at anarchy (AT) submedia DOT tv and we’ll give you all the details.

Pennsylvania Bluegrass at it's finest. Cabinet blew the Rex Theatre and Pittsburgh Away during their tour stop
All The Way from California on their fall tour, Dead Winter Carpenters visited Pittsburgh, Pa at The Rex Theatre
Last Night at The Rex Theatre in Pittsburgh, Pa everyone was high on Pennsylvania Blue Grass, as Cabinet came to town with the Dead Winter Carpenters.

Political struggles over the future of Turkey have left the country profoundly divided. Former prime minister, now president, Tayyip Erdogan, has fueled the growing polarization through his authoritarian response to protests, his large-scale urban development projects, his religious social conservatism, and most recently, through his complicity in the Islamic State's war against the Kurdish people in Northern Syria. In the year after the Gezi uprising, protests continue against the government's urban redevelopment plans, against police repression, in response to repression of the Kurdish and Alevi populations, and in honor of the martyrs that lost their lives as a result of the uprising. Most recently angry protests and riots have spread across the country in solidarity with the Kurdish people's protection units fighting against the Islamic State in Kobane, Rojava. This film chronicles a year of uprisings, resistance and repression since the Gezi uprising in Turkey.
Alot of Boombox fans have heard that they recently added a drum kit to their set during the fall tour.
