Episode 44: Divestment of Pentagon and Police

Carley Towne, CODEPINK's National Divest Campaigner is joined by Yasmine Taeb of Demand Progress and Raksha Muthukumar of NYC DSA Tech Working Group (which you can follow on Twitter and FaceBook). This week we'll be talking about demilitarizing the police and how tech workers can organize against creating products for the military and the police. You can read the Bay Area Amazonian and Microsoft employees' statements requesting the Amazon and Microsoft companies to take concrete action in defunding/cutting ties with police. Take further action by signing our petitions to defund the Pentagon, end the 1033 Program, and our letter to the Biden and Trump presidential campaigns to adopt a just foreign policy regarding Israel and Palestinian human rights.
