Anti-Capitalist Meet Up: Let's Talk 'Decolonization' by Unaspencer

Some of the concepts have been in me for a while, but I did not have connection to a philosophy or political movement, much less a name. So, I'll share my entry point and early thoughts about decolonization. I invite you to share yours.
