Episode 62 – It’s time for radical worker action

Episode 62 is a live show! Recorded live in Ottawa on May 8, Sandy and Nora talk about organizing across difference and the lessons that we can still learn from the Winnipeg General Strike.

Episode 63 will be the audience Q&A and will come out next week.

Thanks to the Mayworks festival for organizing this event and to everyone who came out!

Episode 61 – Are the Liberals bowing to white nationalists?

The biggest story from the 2019 budget barely made the news — the Liberals are tightening border security and making it much more difficult for people to seek asylum, including making it illegal to claim asylum from the United States. Sandy and Nora examine these new anti-refugee policies (including Doug Ford’s cuts to legal aid) and ask progressives to do what they can to make noise to oppose these new policy measures.
