Clayton Morgareidge reads from a piece by Alex Gourevitch in the current issue of Jacobin"Our Forgotten Labor Revolution" arguing that the Reconstruction of the South following the Civil War was ended because its promise of freedom was threatening to go beyond the abolition of chattel slavery to challenge wage slavery.
Denise Morris and Joe Clement discuss housing as a human right, the broad impact of rising housing costs, the Portland history of racism that has contributed to the current housing crunch, the struggle for sustainable solutions that go beyond isolated nuclear family homes, and the process of working together for a variety of remedies, including public housing, tenants unions, community land trusts, and more.
