This time on Communist Movie Night, we watch a film about a Mexican mining town going on strike with the help of some brave women and the solidarity of workers across the country.

This week has been… a lot, to say the least, so we needed a space to vent. We fantasize about a pro-choice utopia, lay down rules for good communists, and for some reason go on a tangent dunking on British food. Reminder to be careful about privacy when researching abortion options and to support local abortion funds in your area. Stay safe out the…
 
We finally get to THAT GUY! Part one includes his early life all the way up to his rise to power in 1930. Topics include his folksy charm, Red Clippy, and ideas for a (totally) fictional revolution.

The title sounds like a setup for a bad Halloween joke, but in this episode, we're taking a look at a Philosophy Tube video called Witchraft, Gender, and Marxism. If this sounds like the perfect combination of topics for Christine to sink their teeth into, you are correct. Happy Halloween! (^w^) That is a pumpkin emoticon. Check us out on social me…
