Norm Diamond and Abigail Singer of Portland Central America Solidarity Committee
Norm underscores how May Day is about the recognition of class-structure in society. Abigail offers her perspective as a worker with the Portland Central America Solidarity Committee. They talk about the meaning of the song bread and roses and social justice organizing, the work of the Portland Liberation Organizing Council. Abigail summarizes what PCASC is up to now (a campaign to get Wells Fargo to divest private prisons, a know your rights workshop for the immigrant community, and other local organizing), climate justice work they've done, and a film about privatizing water in Boliva ("Even The Rain"). Norm appreciates how PCASC takes international solidarity from sympathetic to cooperative struggle, and also remembers the development of May Day from just a labor holiday to a broader event.
