Tues 5.04.10| Chicago Factory Occupation, Greek Ferment

As the economic crisis grinds on for working people around the world, two impressive examples of militancy stand out. Kari Lydersen reported on the 2008 occupation of Chicago's Republic Windows and Doors factory as it was unfolding and talks about the history on the shop floor which provided fertile ground for action. And Chris Spannos discusses the ongoing resistance in Greece, where generations of Greeks have mobilized wave upon wave of general strikes and actions in opposition to austerity measures there.
