This Is America #115: Brooklyn Tenants on Rent Strike Talk May 1st

Welcome, to This Is America, April 25th, 2020.

On this episode, we speak with tenants in Brooklyn, New York on rent strike. We discuss how their strike has been going since it began on April 1st, how the tenant movement has grown throughout the month, and what people can expect on May 1st, where a city-wide rent strike has been called.

We then launch into a discussion on the recent far-Right rallies that have popped up across the US and the Trump administration’s continued bumbling of the coronavirus pandemic and the collapse of the US economy.

Upcoming Events

  • April 27th – May 1st: Rent strike week of action in Austin, Texas.
