This is the full 9-20-10 episode of the Labor Express Radio program.

The back to school edition of Labor Express Radio. First we'll hear about the Siege of La Casita. For most of the past week, parents of children at the Whittier school in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood and their community allies, have occupied a field house on the school’s grounds day and night. CPS plans to demolish the building which is used currently used as an activity center for the school’s children. On Friday, the parents faced off with the Chicago Police and in the end it was the police who retreated.

We'll also hear about a planned rally by the Chicago Teachers Union for downtown Chicago next Tuesday and about organizing of charter school teachers in the city.

And lastly we'll hear about plans for a massive march planned for Washington D.C. Oct. 2nd demanding money for jobs and not war.
