Laura speaks to Mahoma Lopez, of the Laundry Workers Center, fighting on behalf of the B&H workers. B&H Photo Warehouse workers have gone on strike and called for a boycott of B&H workers because of the warehouse attempts to suppress efforts to unionize, moving to New Jersey to avoid negotiating with workers, and leaving 330 workers out of jobs.

Also in this special field piece from Washington Square Park on May Day 2017, an interview with representatives from Socialist Alternative. SA is fighting for reforms that call for a move away from the establishment politics of the Democratic party, say our guests. How to build an internationalist worker’s movement? They have some ideas.

Plus a very special guest, one of our youngest, from the Intl. Women’s Strike, on why we need to knock down the “pillars of oppression.”
