Occupy the Vatican: Nathan Schneider and New Era Windows
On this special Mayday episode, we look at worker movements in places least covered by the corporate media, from Nairobi to a factory in Chicago, to the Vatican. Journalist Nathan Schneider was a part of Occupy Wall Street from the earliest planning stages. His journalism since has taken him from Nairobi to Spain to Ecuador to Detroit, looking for people taking control of the economics affecting their lives. He has been writing about these topics and many others for publications including Harper’s, The Nation, Al Jazeera, The New Inquiry, and The Catholic Worker. Nathan Schneider is the author of two recent books, God in Proof: The Story of a Search from the Ancients to the Internet and Thank You, Anarchy: Notes from the Occupy Apocalypse. Also on this episode, a GRITtv exclusive, as Laura travels to Chicago to visit New Era windows, a worker-owned collective fighting back against capital.
