A webinar sponsored by Workers World Party: www.workers.org

The past few weeks have seen the extraordinary resistance of the Palestinian people against Zionist occupation and genocide greeted by an unprecedented outpouring of global solidarity with the Palestinian struggle. In addition to mass demonstrations, and rockets fired in response to Zionist bombings in Gaza, Palestinians organized a general strike on May 18, 2021.

Thousands of miles away in Bessemer, AL, Amazon workers experienced a temporary setback when a vote to unionize was defeated after Amazon employed outrageous union-busting tactics. Despite the setback, workers continue to organize in Bessemer, and the outcome of the vote is being challenged at the NLRB in response to Amazon's manipulations. Amazon workers are also organizing elsewhere across the country, including in Staten Island, NY.

What is the relationship between these developments? What do they signify for the development or global resistance of working and oppressed people against the ruling class? Join a conversation with Workers World Party First Secretary Larry Holmes this as we explore these questions.

Interviewers:
Romeo Channer, WWP candidate from the San Francisco Bay Area branch
Judy Greenspan, Member WWP San Francisco Bay Area branch, Oakland public school teacher

There are 2 versions of this webinar on the R4A server. Both versions are the full webinar (55:30), lightly edited for pacing and content, mostly removal of "um, uh, you know" and false starts. I didn't add my own intro/outro to either version:

Version 1: A -24 LUFS Mp3 optimized for RADIO PLAY.

Version 2: A -19 LUFS Mp3 optimized for downloading onto a computer or mobile device for INDIVIDUAL USE. Identical content to Version 1, but a louder file encoded at a lower bitrate so it takes up less space.

You can also download these files plus (much larger) .wav files for highest quality at this link:

Note to Radio Station Personnel - Please make note of this link:

You can use it to download all or part of the R4A Essential Dissent archive (in at least .wav format) via my OneDrive account, and I plan to continue to post new episodes to that account even if R4A at some point becomes non-functional.
