clare_judith_ I can't get through this poem without crying... Bread and Roses by James Oppenheim

As we come marching, marching in the beauty of the day,
A million darkened kitchens, a thousand mill lofts gray,
Are touched with all the radiance that a sudden sun discloses,
For the people hear us singing: “Bread and roses! Bread and roses!” As we come marching, marching, we battle too for men,
For they are women’s children, and we mother them again.
Our lives shall not be sweated from birth until life closes;
Hearts starve as well as bodies; give us bread, but give us roses!

As we come marching, marching, unnumbered women dead
Go crying through our singing their ancient cry for bread.
Small art and love and beauty their drudging spirits knew.
Yes, it is bread we fight for — but we fight for roses, too!

As we come marching, marching, we bring the greater days.
The rising of the women means the rising of the race.
No more the drudge and idler — ten that toil where one reposes,
But a sharing of life’s glories: Bread and roses! Bread and roses!

sima_awards In #SIMAfinalist, Broken Landscape, a recent government ban on the practice of rat-hole coal mining has pitted powerful mine owners and their wage laborers against locals faced with coal-infested rivers and wells.

cabinfeverray sexarbete kontra räkningar kontra självförverkligande en så jäkla bra text om att vilja erkännas som arbetare utan att behöva uppfylla kravet på att vara självförverkligad. Vilka arbetare i en kapitalistisk värld är det, egentligen? Link in bio. #sexwork #sexarbete #kapitalism #workersrights #rightsnotrescue 4d

in_ja_near_ee LET'S FEEL THE BERN PEOPLE This picture makes me feel a lot of feelings, about America and New England and the punk scene in Burlington VT and cats and MLK Jr. and Allen Ginsberg and Sandra Bland and feminism and my friends' babies and a slight flicker of hope in the overwhelming darkness that is modern American capitalistic life. Help us @berniesanders, you're our only hope! #feelthebern #iowa 5d

canadashistory Madeleine Parent (1918–2012)

Union organizer and social activist. Late in life, Madeleine Parent was recognized her indefatigable activism on behalf of workers, women, and minorities. But in her younger years she was marked as a dangerous woman and a “seditious” traitor. In the 1940s, Parent organized workers in the massive textile factories of Quebec. She was convicted — and later acquitted — of seditious conspiracy. From the 1950s to the 1970s, she led the Canadian Textile and Chemical Union, and launched historic struggles over workers rights. In her late eighties, Parent continued to speak out on a wide range of social justice issues. In the end, her radical, left-wing ideas not only defined who she was but became her lasting legacy to Canadian society.
Vote for Madeleine Parent with link in bio.
