32 – MSDN #2 – What is Medical Self-Defense?

This episode is an interview with Kolya (he/him) from the Medical Self-Defense Network (MSDN). We explore what is medical self-defense, taking a deep dive into some of the political and practical principles. We talk about the complexities of professionalisation, the differences between grassroots and state healthcare projects and the relationship between them, building power in a horizontal way and many more things! Kolya defines self-defense as structures that make systems of oppression obsolete.
