West Virginia Teacher’s Strike Viewing Party
March 10, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm UTC-6
WEST VIRGINIA teachers are continuing their statewide strike into a second full week in a struggle that is galvanizing people around the country who support the cause of labor and economic justice.
The strike began on Thursday, February 22, and was expected to last two days, but the teachers–determined not to end their walkout until their full demands for a wage increase, a fix for the state’s insurance system for public employees and other issues are met–stayed out into the following week.
Join the Madison Branch of the ISO to tune in to a nationwide live-stream from West Virginia strikers for updates on the political landscape and discussion on how we can show solidarity.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This viewing is being held at a private residence, and therefore the address should be shared with discretion. Thanks!
