Eric is joined in conversation with Channing Martinez on the launch of the Bus Riders Union Fare Strike. Organizers and volunteers of the Bus Riders Union began last week getting on the Metro buses and trains to organize riders to participate in a Metro-wide fare strike. Channing speaks about the need to stop paying the fares immediately and the urgency of learning to not just study revolution, but to put your body on the line.
