New Year, Old Struggles: The Strike for a Collective Agreement in the Logistics Sector

Since 2008, the logistics sector in Italy has been the epicenter of a wave of struggles led by a workforce mainly manned by immigrants. These struggles have at times been severely repressed by the employers (with the support of heavy deployment of police), but have also gained significant victories.

No One Is Free Until We’re All Free

The Downtown Boys’ "Full Communism" was one of the most talked-about punk albums of 2015. NME called it the best debut album of the year. It also happens to be one of the most subversive albums made in any genre in recent years. With songs like “100% Inheritance Tax,” the group isn’t shy about putting radical politics on the table. We spoke with bandmembers Victoria Ruiz and Joey DeFrancesco about organizing hotel workers, file sharing, and dismantling the capitalist system.

Notes From ‘The Cut’: An American Prison

Lieutenant Scott greeted us at the door with a smile as Sergeant Davis followed closely behind. We were a group of eight nursing students with our instructor, making a sort of “educational visit” to the Jessup Correctional Institute, A.K.A. “The Cut,” which houses the only women’s prison in Maryland.
