Two questions for Stacy, “Is Amazon moving into manufacturing? Also, it seems that Amazon took the Walmart model and moved it online? Is that a good analogy?

Michelle, could you talk more about the issue of Facebook, et al, consciously creating the digital infrastructure for white supremacy? Do they see fascism as their vision of the future?

To Dania’s point about building local spaces for social justice. It seems that we need to re-imagine the union hall as a 24/7 community center addressing all the needs of the local working class, including a local labor history archives, museum and education center. For example, at the height of UAW power in 1940s, Reuther’s Detroit home local had a library of 40,000 books. Today, Centro de Trabajadores Unidos en la in Minneapolis. Your thoughts?
