From CBC Radio’s The 180 with Jim Brown:

“I would argue that before reconciliation, we really need to look at decolonization,” he says. “Decolonization starts with land. It starts with the question of land.

One response to “We need decolonization before reconciliation, argues Ryan McMahon

    I do agree. Decolonize the habitus / “mindset” is a necessity before you can start a liberation/ revolution/ rebellion against all kinds of power that holds you down, really. / For this to come about you need some symbolic labour, or, as some call it, ideological labour. The interview is a good example of this labour The stolen car metaphor is just great. /iGreetings from La Laz.
