by Madeleine Freeman

On the anniversary of Trotsky’s death, we reexamine his writings from the final period of his life, which he spent in exile in Mexico.

Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson Has No Place at Labor Notes

The Labor Notes Conference will have record attendance this year, but it’s showing its limits by opening with a speech from Chicago’s pro-cop Democratic mayor, Brandon Johnson.
