Episode 129 – Useless Supermajority? w/ Joey De Jesus
/

Hey there Baysiders and Ridgewooders, Art and Labor here, your one and only source for the scandalous lives of brooklyn’s finest backwash. Spotted on the steps of a Glendale bodega, an A&L reuniting with JDJ? There’s nothing O, D, and S love more than a rousing round table on electoralism, but is the DSA really ready to play ball with the big leagues? Democrats aren’t exactly known for playing fair, or rather, playing fair anywhere they’ve already won a power struggle. Eric Adams might have won the throne of Democratic primary candidate for the mayoral race already, but an independent working class has a way of toppling crowns, preferably with guillotines. We’ll just have to see if so called leftists have it in them to reign a little terror. No matter what, though, you know A&L is expropriating all the luscious details.

You know you love me,

xoxo, Art and Labor

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.

Ezra Koenig, go on Art and Labor! You deserve this big Toblerone! Note: spoilers don’t really start til like 20 minutes in. We went to the anti-Amazon community forum and read a bunch of Bookchin, but instead of discussing either of those things we recap all of Neo Yokio. Please watch this incredible series about excessive wealth and demonic revolution.
