This week’s show is an interview with Lee and Emily, members of the Seattle Solidarity Network.

According to their website (www.seasol.net):
“Seattle Solidarity (“SeaSol”) is a volunteer network of working people who believe in standing up for our rights. Our goal is to support our fellow workers’ strikes and struggles, build solidarity, and organize to deal with specific job, housing, and other problems caused by the greed of the rich and powerful.
Join us! Let’s fight to win.”

This week’s show features an interview with former Asheville resident and current resident of Oakland and an organizer of the Occupy movement there. We talk about the police attack last Tuesday, the differences between the Oakland movement from other Occupy’s and the upcoming call for a General Strike.

I’ll also be talking briefly about the upcoming solidarity march (Wednesday the 2nd) here in Asheville starting at 6pm under the Lexington/I-240 bridge, and the protest this Friday in Raleigh at the Department of Corrections offices.
