May Day: Movements Going Beyond the Moment

A special covering the breadth of actions and hundreds of thousands who are joining across the world to call for transformative justice.

A special May Day report from the "Laura Flanders Show" covering the breadth of actions and hundreds of thousands who are joining across the world on International Worker's Day to call for transformative justice! Taking the radical legacy of May Day, where thousands of workers struck for labor justice, and the joyous spirit of the springtime, people are rising up this year for a liberatory vision. This is a moment where snake-oil and soundbytes are set aside for telling the stories of those most marginalized.

This episode follows organizers as they present their visions of a better world — and what they're doing to build it. They raise the question: how can we work together to build the future available to everyone, meaning trans people, immigrants, workers, indigenous people, veterans, people of color, and women? From the broad based #BeyondtheMoment coalition uniting movements under the banner of Black liberation and anti-militarism, to the Day without Immigrants, which paints a chilling portrait of what our communities could become, this day is about what we'll build to exist 200 hundred years from now.
