Students strike, farmers march, and women rise: This week in India’s social movements

You don’t need me to tell you that these are dark times.

Now, the West Virginia teachers are inspiring working women across the country — and proving that progressive organizing and collective action, not milquetoast centrism or reactionary racism, is the way to win in so-called Trump Country.

This bill would take citizenship away from immigrants who aren’t “moral” enough

The ‘‘Protecting Our Communities from Gang Violence Act of 2018’’ Act, introduced in the House of Representatives last month by Republican Lee Zeldin of New York, would allow the U.S. government to revoke the citizenship status of naturalized immigrants who have been or are affiliated or associated with a criminal gang.
