Last Thursday, around 1,100 coal miners at Warrior Met Coal in Tuscaloosa County, Alabama, went on strike. In order to cover this important strike, we've teamed up with our brothers-in-arms Jacob Morrison, cohost of the outstanding Valley Labor Report, and musician Lee Bains III of The Glory Fires. In this special episode, we've compiled clips from Lee's live performance as well as Jacob's interviews on the picket line and at the local union hall. (All music sourced from The Free Music Archive)
Reader donations, many as small as just $5, have kept In These Times publishing for 45 years. But when donations slow down, it puts our future reporting at risk. To get back on track, we're aiming to add 400 contributions from readers by the end of the month. Will you be one of them?
