Chiseling Away at America’s Racist History

Other night of June 18th, 2020 I was standing with a handful of photographers on the outside of the protests that were happening at the monument to disgraced Confederate general Robert E Lee in Richmond Virginia. Not much was happening but as a photographer, you end up sticking around into the late-night just in case…

General Lee Loses Again.

Thursday morning we’ll have a better idea if the monument to America’s greatest traitor will fall over the weekend or allies of the Confederacy will once again ride in the streets of Richmond. But for now we have the beauty of the people’s voice in the form of graffiti all over the base of the…

Photos: Trump’s Wall in Washington DC

According to media reports, Trump will take down the over one mile of fencing that has been surrounding the White House for the last week. That’s a positive. But unfortunately that means that the signs and art that has been covering the ‘wall’ will also have to be taken down. In my experience that usually…

PHOTOS: Washington DC #BLM Still in the Streets

The White House seems to keep moving the fence father and father back, now taking over the entirety of Lafayette Park pushing the protests literally into the streets.

‘Rally to Free NY’ in Syracuse

Taking a page from the reopen America events, a set of similar rallies were held around New York State.  It is rare to have a conservative tinged rally or event in Syracuse (outside of a private fundraiser) even though currently the mayor is a Republican as is the congressman. Back when the tea party was…

ReOpen America rally-goers are members of Trump’s death cult

Originally published in NationofChange The protests across the country this past week calling for a ‘reopening of America’ is the obvious conclusion to the election of Donald Trump to the Presidency. Roughly a thousand people rallied in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania this week in the middle of a worldwide pandemic that has so far taken over 45,000 American…

Voices and Stories from the NYC Climate March

Across the country and the world last Friday, kids and adults marched and rallied in solidarity in a Climate Strike. The NYC Mayors office puts the number of people who marched in Manhattan at 60,000, according to the NTY Times; the organizers say 250,000. This journalist’s estimate puts the numbers far closer to the cities…

Photos from the Picket Line in Rochester – Midnight

Mike Elk and I have been on the picket line for the last week speaking to union workers who are on strike from their jobs at GM.  Our first stop was in Rochester, NY. When you think of union autoworkers you think Detroit, maybe Ohio… but thousands are employed by GM and other auto manufacturers…

UAW Vote in Chattanooga is Close

You can support Zach’s work at his Patreon.  Earlier this month I worked with Mike Elk of PaydayReport.com for Subverse.net – we got some really interesting behind the scenes stories about the United Auto Workers union vote and why there might just still be hope for a union at the VW plant in Chattanooga, Tenn….
