Minneapolis Bus Drivers Refuse to Cooperate with Cops | Left Voice
« Amidst widespread protesting in Minneapolis over the murder of George Floyd, some Minneapolis bus drivers are refusing to help cops. They will not use their buses to transport protesters to jail. Other labor sectors should follow suit and must strike against police terror and violence. »
