Reporting live from North Carolina 📢

From WSWS:

Socialist Equality Party

Our reporting team just got to North Carolina to cover the next stage of the teachers revolt.

Thousands of teachers are marching in Raleigh, North Carolina today. On Saturday, teachers in South Carolina will join the growing rebellion against the bipartisan attacks on public education.

I'm writing to ask you to please donate today to the World Socialist Web SiteWe urgently need your support to cover many costs.

With your financial contributions, we can report and provide a socialist perspective for these courageous teachers who have taken a stand for the entire working class.
Thanks largely to the donations of our readers and supporters, we were able to cover the teachers strikes in West Virginia, Kentucky, Oklahoma and Arizona. And we have won a hearing among teachers who are fed up with the sellouts by the unions in every state.

We have written more than 140 articles on the strikes of teachers since the outbreak of the teachers rebellion in West Virginia in February.

Throughout the strikes, the coverage of the WSWS has been absolutely unique. We warned that the unions were working systematically to shut down, isolate and sell out the teachers struggles. We provided a voice for the demands of rank-and-file teachers and their effort to break free from the stranglehold of these anti-working-class organizations. We live-streamed interviews, provided on-the-spot reporting, and brought the voice of the teachers to a world audience. We held multiple conference calls attended by teachers throughout the country and internationally that outlined a strategy for the defense of public education and all the rights of the working class.

All our trips and interventions have involved significant financial costsairfarecar rentalshousing accommodations, the printing of thousands of leaflets, the sending out of mass text messages and much more.

If you have donated recently to the WSWS, I want to thank you for doing so. It has helped us carry out our energetic reporting throughout the teachers strikes. If you haven’t donated this month, please make as large a donation as you can.

I want to make a special appeal to our regular readers and our supporters to please set up a monthly donation. Increasing our regular monthly budget is critical in allowing us to plan much more aggressive interventions in the struggles of the working class to come.

We have an ambitious goal for the month of May: 200 or more new monthly subscribers to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Karl Marx's birth. 

Your regular monthly donations — even as little as $20 a month — can help build a mass revolutionary socialist movement today.

Can you help us?
