Also in this special field piece from Washington Square Park on May Day 2017, an interview with representatives from Socialist Alternative. SA is fighting for reforms that call for a move away from the establishment politics of the Democratic party, say our guests. How to build an internationalist worker’s movement? They have some ideas.
