    On today's episode of Loud & Clear, Brian Becker is joined by activist, educator and author Bill Ayers, by Juan Jose Gutierrez, the executive director of the Full Rights for Immigrants Coalition, and by Nathalie Hrizi, editor of the magazine "Breaking the Chains: A Socialist Perspective on Women's Liberation."

    Today is May Day, or International Workers' Day, which is marked around the world as a day to celebrate the achievements of the labor movement and to continue the fight for social justice. In many countries, it's an official holiday. Here in the United States, where the holiday began, the memory of the day’s origins has long been suppressed by the powers that be. But on the first May Day under the Trump administration, a resurgence of both the workers' movement and the immigrant rights movement looks set to hit the streets today in huge numbers.
