Stop-Shop-Strike2.jpgStarting Thursday, April 11th, 31,000 Stop & Shop grocery store workers at over 240 stores throughout New England went on strike to fight for a fair contract— what will be the largest strike in the U.S. since a 2016 walkout by Verizon workers. Stop & Shop workers are members of United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) and are holding the picket line as of this writing.

Radio Silence: On the End of Radio Klaxon, the ZAD’s Pirate Radio
