Interview with Hip-Hop collective 'Social Waste' and Athens-based 'Group of Libertarian Communists' about the leftist-regime of Syriza (Anarchistisches Radio Berlin)

Thursday, March 12th, 2015

After the Greek elections from January 25, 2015 the left-wing party Syriza took over the government in a coalition with the national-conservative party of the Independent Greeks.

As Anarchist Radio Berlin we talked to comrades from Greece in order to learn more about what to expect from this new government, as anarchists but also as part of the autonomous and self-organization movements.

We can present you two audios that cover different aspects of how to look at the Greek situation today. One interview was made with Leonidas from the anarchist hip-hop collective Social Waste, the other with three members of the Athens-based Group of Libertarian Communists.

You’ll find both audios (to listen online or download in different sizes) here:

Interview with 'Social Waste' on HipHop and politics in Greece (A-Radio Berlin)

Monday, July 14th, 2014

Dear all,

we would like to present an interview the Anarchist Radio Berlin (aradio.blogsport.de) made with the Greek Hip Hop collective Social Waste, who were on tour and performed in Berlin on the 6th of July 2014. Social Waste are involved in multiple, ongoing struggles in Greece. The group has been active since the late 1990s and they are engaged in providing a sociopolitical analysis through their music. In the interview, Leonidas, Yiannis, Yiorgis and Chris tell us about the history of Hip Hop in Greece, what motivates them to do music and how they produce it. They also tell us about current issues in Greece, concerning the crisis, its neoliberal management and the antifascist struggle.
