Interview With a Striking Stop and Shop Worker
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. The primary issues are wages and rising health care costs as the parent company of Stop & Shop, Ahold Delhaize, reaped $2 billion in profits last year.

Radio Silence: On the End of Radio Klaxon, the ZAD’s Pirate Radio
The following report from the ZAD is reposted from IGD. Since the original authors plan to post it on Indymedia we figured we'd throw it up here.
