4. Belabored: Podcast #123: Marching on Mississippi, with Morris Mock and Danny Glover
Last weekend, the long-time union struggle at the Nissan plant in Canton, Mississippi reached a new peak with a march, led by former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and Hollywood icon and activist Danny Glover. We spoke with Canton plant worker Morris Mock and Glover about the conditions in the plant, the long struggle for union rights in the South, their deep connection to civil rights struggles, and more.
We also check in with Women’s Strikers from around the country and the workers in SeaTac, Washington, and we take a look at the promises and the reality of “Trumpcare.” For “Argh,” we look at a winning labor-environmental campaign in Richmond, CA, and a look back at the entwined history of protest marches and mass strikes.
