Tim Lo Surdo: 'the broken rules that screw us all'

 

All around the world, young people are taking things into their own hands, pressing for gun control in the US, suing polluters over climate change, and resisting neocolonial narratives.

In Australia, 23-year old Tim Lo Surdo is doing what he can to contest the power structures that are reinforced through racism. He has worked in various contexts, including in anti-poverty and environment campaigns, as well as union organising. Last year, he founded Democracy in Colour, which we talk about in this episode.

We also talk about what organising means, why it's important to contest the idea that things like economics and racism aren't related, and how to talk about hope in divisive times.
