On this May Day special of People's Health Radio we share our own music and poetry on the topic of working class health and struggle, and also invite guests Beth Grayer and Zailda Chan to also share their poems. Also includes an interview with Anakana Schofield about her work to revive interest in Helen Potrebenko's important novel, Taxi!
Poetry and writings by Aiyanas Ormond, Beth Grayer, Cheryl Savageau, June Jordan and Zailda Chan.

Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
