Seeing Red Radio: May Day 2009, Pt. 1

May Day 2009: Pt. 1
Seeing Red Radio

This is the first musical installment of our two-part series celebrating this Day of International Workers’ Solidarity. First, we remember the late Black Panther leader, Fred Hampton; then we address police brutality, Katrina, Tookie, Lebanon, the demonization of undocumented workers, the anti-war movement, the grueling exploitation of workers everywhere, and the necessity of organized workers to fight back with words from Fannie Lou Hamer, Martin Luther King Jr., Kwame Ture, Jon Stewart, Maurice Brinton of Solidarity, Bill Moyers, Noam Chomsky and the dueling reconciliation hypocrisy of Democrat Nancy Pelosi and Republican Greg Judd.

Solidarity Pamphlet from “For Workers’ Power: The Selected Writings of Maurice Brinton”, edited by David Goodway, published by AK Press
