IWW Toronto Members: How Students & Faculty get it Done

Sandwiched between Mayday and The Anniversary of Kent State, and nestled on a bed of Chicago Spring, we packed the Que4 Radio studio with industrial unionists and old friends to discuss labor, higher education, and environmental justice. We were joined by Brianne Bolin of Precaricorps, Max Baru and Katie Leonard of the IWW. We also are joined by Bret Hamilton of Save Columbia here in Chicago. Our friend and past co-broadcaster, Mike Nowak, sat in to provide his extremely knowledgeable perspective, as well as our fav fem-fatale Catherine “Povs” Povineli. There was also a pleasant surprise visit from Chicago 1st Ward aldermanic challenger and civil rights lawyer Anne Shaw. We even had live breaking updates from the UK concerning the arrival of the recent royal seed. All this on the defiantly unique and original programming provided by AM1680, Que4 Radio, in Chicago.

It’s been five years since the economic crash, nobody’s in jail for it. the banks are bigger, wages are lower, and we’re going to march to the loop and shutdown an institution that shall remain unnamed until that morning. Come one come all! The working people of Chicago will march in solidarity with the May Day martyrs and the rest of the country. The location of the action is a short walk from the red line and a thirty minute one transfer train ride to the annual march starting at union park. @21js_ @joinRAD @chicagoRADicals

Here’s the facebook event page for the May Day Anti-Capitalist Demo.
