Bill Resnick talks with Justin Kertson-Norton about the Fight for $15 movement.

Everyday Rebellion

program date: 
Mon, 05/11/2015
Hyung Nam and Frann Michel discuss Everyday Rebellion, a "cross-media documentary about creative forms of nonviolent protest and civil disobedience worldwide."  They find the film lacking in a strong analysis of power and short on strategy and long-term vision but useful on tactics and for inspiration. 13:26 minutes (6.15 MB)

Malik Miah on Black Lives Matter

program date: 
Mon, 05/11/2015
Bill Resnick talks with Malik Miah about the Black Lives Matter movement, its origins and direction. Malik argues that race makes for different working-class experiences of capitalist oppression, that we cannot simply rally under "class", and for how rebellious movements understandably grow out of situations where "nothing else works".

Malik Miah is a former machinist and union activist who has organized around and written about race and class. His writing appears in Against the Current, where he's an editor.

The Oregon Supreme Court recently overturned the efforts of the Oregon Legislature to correct some of the funding problems as they affect PERS.  I interviewed more than a half-dozen legislators in 2014 about what they thought about the PERS funding issue and how they would deal with it.  This piece is a look back at the comments of those legislators and their thoughts in light of the recent ruling.

Middle East Meltdown

program date: 
Mon, 05/04/2015
Dave Finkel and Bill Resnick discuss the latest phase of the battle for control of the middle east.

Finkel is editor of Against the Current and co-author of the editorial “Middle East Imperial Meltdown” in the latest issue.
