We discuss our extremely overburdened public education system, which has been helping millions of families during the pandemic and yet is being gutted by austerity (via “progressive” Democrats!!). We also talk about how teachers are having to protect their international students from ICE, and how many schools have no emergency plan for the staff and will potentially just close instead of adapt to new safety standards.

Hey friends! Send your confused relatives #8toAbolition. The best the democrats can do is pretend to ban chokeholds, it’s sickening. We must counteract the Deray-ification of activism, support longstanding anti-gentrification tenants rights orgs in your neighborhood. We talk about all that stuff plus the tricky balance of participating in the protests and staying safe from the second covid wave as well as the disagreements between the more communist or more anarchist wings of the left (and I GUESS the social democrats and liberals).

We spoke with Ryan Estrada (@ryanestrada) about the differences between South Korea and the United States’ handling of the covid-19 crisis, as you might imagine, it’s stark.

De Blasio and Cuomo are continuing the masquerade of the corona virus, the stocks must flow. Gig workers like us have already lost weeks of work. We must send them a message for a moratorium on evictions and a universal rent freeze NOW. Add your network to the growing list of orgs petitioning the government, and sign this public petition. This is a crucial time for organizing, we need to figure out creative ways to protect the most vulnerable while containing the spread of the virus.If you like the podcast and want more, please consider supporting us: https://www.patreon.com/artandlabor. Follow us on twitter and instagram.
