Sunsara Taylor on The Upsurge Against Sexual Harassment And Abuse.
A very righteous mass upsurge has broken out around a key fault-line issue of this, and all prior, class societies. Sexual harassment and sexual assault is a problem going back millennia, and a problem which is totally pervasive, including on a global scale. At the same time, it is in fact necessary to recognize and overcome some secondary, negative trends which could serve to misdirect and derail this struggle.
We'll talk about all these important questions and more with Sunsara Taylor, writer for RevCom.us/Revolution newspaper, and one of the initiators of Refuse Fascism.
ICE Raids and Resistance - Cinthia Flores, CHIRLA, and Michelle Xai, Refuse Fascism LA
On Wednesday, January 10, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents staged pre-dawn raids on about one hundred 7-Eleven stores in eighteen states and Washington D.C. These were the largest immigration raids launched on workplaces under the Trump/Pence regime. And these fascists promise that this is only the beginning.
In response, activists in Los Angeles have formed a Raids Rapid Response Network, and launched protests at 7-Eleven stores. We'll speak with Cinthia Flores, Legal and Policy Counsel for CHIRLA, The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights, and Michelle Xai of Refuse Fascism LA.
