On today's program, Vince examines the conspiratorial left and the organizations, media outlets and individuals who support it. In order for poor and working-class people to effectively organize in the long-term, we must reject the nihilism, cynicism and apathy produced by those entities. Unfortunately, these trends are not limited to progressive movements in the U.S.
On today's program, Vince is joined by Sarah Zawaki, as they talk about the ongoing crisis in Venezuela, gun violence in the U.S., new shipping lanes in the Great Lakes, climate change in Antarctica, police violence in Seattle, the Grenfell Tower massacre and the ongoing cultural divide between rural and urban Americans.
On today's program, Vince recaps the last several weeks of news, political actions and events, including local and regional campaigns and upcoming actions. Also, since many people inquired via email, text and phone, Vince talks about why he didn't attend "The People's Summit" in Chicago this past weekend.
On today's program, Vince is joined by two of his favorite people: Shumani Tutanka Owachi and Sergio Alexander Kochergin. They discuss all sorts of current events, but primarily the upcoming "Re-Defining Memorial Day" event that's taking place on Saturday, May 27th at P.A.R.C. in Michigan City.
