Washington Square, May 1, 2017

MayDay 2017 saw a resurgence of working class marches and protests around the world. Here in New York City, WBAI/Pacifica radio's Mitchel Cohen joined a march of immigrant workers, who paraded through the west Village. Mitchel interviewed Diana Marino from Brandworkers, who has been unionizing the mostly immigrant workforce in the baking industry at Amy's Bread.

Mitchel Cohen also caught up with David L. Wilson and Jane Guskin during the march, whose newly revised book, The Politics of Immigration:Questions and Answers, will be published by Monthly Review later this month.

This first report consists of an interview with former political prisoner Tarik Haskins, and is as poignant as it is powerful.
