Labor Unions Demand Justice For George Floyd

Labor Unions across the country have issued statements condemning the killing of George Floyd, but statements are not enough. To defeat racist police violence, we need a fighting labor movement willing to strike for justice.

The Cops: Racists and Strike Breakers

The police officers who murdered George Floyd have been fired, but that isn’t even close to enough. The killer cops must be jailed and we must organize together to overthrow the racist system that created them.
