Orlando Workers League - OWL says
School's out (or will be soon!) for summer, but the nonense of the capitalist class keeps on. Come out to learn about the history of the labor movement and how it applies to current struggles for liberation in the first of a series of educational events. An educated activist force is the only thing that can bring down the reactionary elements of our current administration and society.

So let's do it. Summer school - radical style!

In order to prepare for our collaborative discussion May 24, we’ve assembled some awesome sources for you to peruse. Feel free to read, watch, and listen:
