This week Will Beaman and Maxximilian Seijo are joined by their first guest, Natalie Smith, from Santiago, Chile. Together, they consider deep analogies between the 2019 Chilean uprising against Santiago’s transit infrastructure and the current wave of US protests against the infrastructure of violent policing. Drawing inspiration from Black abolitionism’s calls to reconstruct all forms of social infrastructure, Naty, Will and Maxx reflect on the necessity of an abolition framework for a modern money imaginary.
