The bloody fingerprints of both major parties are all over police killings and the so-called ‘border crisis’. Policies of consecutive administrations, both Republican and Democratic, have destabilized Central America and violently increased immigration cruelties at the border, while racist police killings like that of George Floyd are a constant across the nation. Join Eugene Puryear and Rania Khalek for an in-depth discussion of U.S. imperialism’s links to the ongoing immigration crisis, and a detailed look at the ongoing Derek Chauvin trial.
BreakThrough News is building the media arm of the movement. We tell the untold stories of resistance from poor and working-class communities — because out of these stories we will construct a different narrative of the world, as it is and in real time.
Think to yourself, is this article something that would be published anywhere other than BreakThrough?
Five mega-corporations dominate the media landscape — controlling 90% of what we read, watch and listen to. People’s movements in every corner of the globe are changing history and shifting consciousness. But these movements barely receive any coverage from the corporate media. They need visibility. They need amplification. They need a media arm to break through.
Working-class people deserve better, we deserve media for and by us. We are not funded by billionaires or corporations – we are funded by you. Without you, BreakThrough would not be possible, so become a member and build the media arm of the movement with us.
