Striking mine workers at the Warrior Met Mines in Alabama took their picket line to the New York City office of BlackRock this week. The multi-trillion dollar investment management service is the biggest investor in the Mines, where 1,1000 coal miners have been on strike since April. The workers have preserved despite multiple vehicular attacks, arrests, and intimidation. Host Monica Cruz joins the strikers at the picket line in midtown Manhattan. PLUS striking workers in Italy continue on after a truck drives through a picket line, killing a union leader.

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.
