This past week, Sandy and Nora have both found themselves in different crises — we talk about civil disobedience, police PR and what happens when a labour leader makes a mistake.
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!
Justin Trudeau and his Liberal government legislated striking postal workers back to work this week. Despite the fact that 1. mail has continued to be delivered and 2. that the right to strike is protected by the Charter, everyone’s favourite fauxminist has put the boots to CUPW members’ necks and forced an end to their rotating strikes.
Sandy and Nora decode what all this means, and why our right to strike is a right that needs to be vigourously defended.
