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.

Special Report: Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party's Radical Rise

SPECIAL REPORT: What difference does a Party make? This week on the "Laura Flanders Show" we talk about what's happening in the U.K., where one of the two main parties is picking up many of the radical demands coming out of movement groups seeking to transform the economy and society. In 2017, mainstream media predicted that the Labour Party would be crushed in the general election. Instead, it won its best result in 20 years, getting more than 40 percent of the vote under the leadership of life long socialist and anti-war campaigner Jeremy Corbyn.
