Please note:
I haven’t kept this site up to date so much lately but need to make sure the issues related to the virus, the economic and health and workers rights issues and all that surround them, so I am sharing below (with permission) a recent post from TheresThis.com and I encourage everyone to check out that site as there’s much there on these important topics.
I will update this site as soon as I can.
Thanks.

Mayday Strikes And Beyond, Much More Beyond.

Right now we can choose positive change or to be crushed.

Right now we have to stand for our lives and rights but beyond that we have an opportunity for change… or an opportunity to be crushed, hopefully you’ll help us all choose the former.
And to that end I’m sharing a wide range of info and ways you can help.

Here’s the list of things I’m recommending (and may be added to) in no particular order.

Informative videos and websites about Socialism, striking, getting informed and involved and more…

1. Article:
“The coronavirus pandemic fuels the class struggle”
https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2020/04/30/pers-a30.html
and you can also look up the May 2nd global rally that I mentioned (which may be archived) and much more.

Quote from that article:
“The alternative to capitalism is socialism—the restructuring of social and economic life, on a world scale, to meet social need, not private profit.”

2. “Cornel West and Richard Wolff talk about Capitalism and White Supremacy”

3. “Richard D. Wolff Interview: The End Of Capitalism Near? New Stimulus Package. Oil Prices Below 0.”
