BONUS EP: The History of the Free Speech Movement with FSM veteran Joel Geier

The Free Speech Movement was an outgrowth of the civil rights movement. Legal segregation existed in the South. In the North there was de facto segregation, racism in practice. In the liberal San Francisco Bay Area employers refused to hire Blacks as bank tellers, car salesmen, hotel waiters, supermarket clerks, among other jobs. In 1964, amidst major fights over civil rights in the Bay Area, the UC Berkeley administration banned all student political organizations from campus. For the first three weeks of its existence the FSM was not called the FSM. Its original name was “The United Front.” It took in all campus organizations that were against the university rules that attempted to restrict student political activity. And The Free Speech Movement demanded and won the right to free speech on campus. In that four-month-long struggle the radicals who led it won the active support and involvement of the entire campus.

TL4T #12 No Olympics LA: Part 1

This week on TL4T we've got Part 1 of our 2 part episode with No Olympics LA! We're talking with Steve Ducey and Johnny Coleman, both with DSA LA, and the No Olympics LA campaign. From nolympicsla.com "The Olympics puts the interests of the mega-rich and corporate brands above the interests of athletes, fans, and working people in the cities it commandeers. A Los Angeles Olympics (and Paralympics) would primarily service the corporate interests of the IOC and the state and national political ambitions of Mayor Eric Garcetti. Should LA host the Olympics, we will see wide-ranging human rights’ violations and the forfeiture of our city to the interests of contractors, developers, media corporations, and the special interests who designed the bid."

TL4T #10 Reproducing Society: Part 2

This week on Too Long 4 Twitter, we're following up on last week's ep about feminism and taking a deeper dive into a theory of gender oppression and getting into social reproduction theory, aka: how we as worker's reproduce ourselves. Social Reproduction Theory: Remapping Class, and Recentering Oppression. Edited by Tithi Bhattacharya. In this book, leading writers such as Lise Vogel, Nancy Fraser, David McNally and Susan Ferguson reveal the ways in which daily and generational reproductive labor, found in households, schools, hospitals and prisons, also sustains the drive for accumulation. https://www.plutobooks.com/9780745399881/social-reproduction-theory/ Tithi Bhattacharya on Doug Henwood's podcast Behind the News: https://www.blubrry.com/jacobin/30374357/behind-the-news-what-social-reproduction-theory-offers-us/ Women, Race, & Class by Angela Y.
