[The US is aflame, its people afire….  People’s Strike! <https://peoplesstrike.org/> in the US, which took shape in April 2020 in the early days of the COVID19 pandemic and lockdown, initiated a process of organising and coordinating people’s strikes on the first of each month, across the US, starting with May 1.  Along with this, it has also given shape to a quite remarkable broadcast on that day each month, running all day, featuring news on what’s going on, analysis, and discussions from the worlds of movement both within the US and internationally.  Here’s the programme for tomorrow’s programme, on August 1 :
