Red May Event: The Return of the Strike: Red State Revolt
May 11 @ 12:00 pm - 1:45 pm
A Spectre is haunting the USA: the first strike wave in over four neoliberal decades. West Virginia, Oklahoma, Arizona, Los Angeles, teachers have walked off their jobs and shut down schools to demand better pay, more funding for students, no funding for charter schools, and an end to years of austerity. Slowdowns and a threatened strike by flight attendants and airport screeners ended the government shutdown. Eric Blanc, Kate Doyle Griffiths, and Wayne Au explore the new landscape of solidarity and Bhaskar Sunkara moderates, as Red May and Verso Books salute Eric Blanc’s new book, Red State Revolt: The Teachers’ Strike Wave and Working-Class Politics (Verso, 2019)
