This is the full 5-6-2018 episode of the Labor Express Radio program.
I hope all of our listeners had a celebratory and energizing May Day this year. We are going to need that renewed energy as the working class is facing some very difficult battles on the horizon. Today’s program being the first since this years May Day which was of course last Tuesday, we will feature audio captured from around the country on May 1st. Like the weather and unlike the time clock we will start once again this year on the West Coast and move East, including reports from Chicago, the home of May Day, and Puerto Rico were the largest and most militant Mayday protests in this country were held this year.
But first May Day is the most internationalist of all holidays and it is therefore proper to start with a global May Day message from our friends at RadioLabour based in Canada. This edition of Solidarity News features a message from Sharan Burrow of the ITUC in honor of the holiday.
