Jacobin Radio w/ Suzi Weissman: Urban Politics from Barcelona to Chicago

Sept. 25, 2017

We look at urban politics from Barcelona to Chicago with Isidro Lopez, Podemos Member of Parliament in Madrid, and Troy LaRaviere, president of the Chicago Principals and Administrators Association. Isidro brings us his analysis of the independence referendum in Catalonia — slated for October 1 but now banned and declared unconstitutional by the Central Government — that has brought tens of thousands to the streets of Barcelona demanding the right to vote. Then, Troy LaRaviere, who is beginning his campaign against Rahm Emmanuel for mayor of Chicago, and taking on the Democratic Party in the process, joins us to to talk about his campaign, his support for the city's public schools and the Chicago Teachers Union, and the fight against charterization and privatization.
