Struggle and the State

Today’s Dig is a very good and somewhat unusual Dig: Dan’s got two interviews with two different people. First, journalist Eric Blanc on the teacher strike wave that he’s been covering for Jacobin. Then comes the Center for Popular Democracy’s Xiomara Caro Diaz on last week’s May Day demonstrations against austerity in Puerto Rico.
