    is a writer and filmmaker based in London. Her most recent book is Variations (Influx Press, 2021).

This playlist of political songs from Juliet Jacques reminds us of what was important before the COVID-19 crisis, and what will be important again. The topics range from the struggles of Weimar Germany to coalition-era Britain, the relations between Renaissance artists and their patrons, historical mining disasters, the Sacco and Vanzetti trial, systemic racism, the British in Northern Ireland and the US in Latin America, the Harvey Milk assassination and more. It's a call to arms to "make the rich pay for the crisis" and it's never been more relevant than now.
