Urgent Call for court solidarity - Cindy Sheehan & friends in court December 11 for UN Mission Trespass

absinthe | Medea Benjamin, Cindy Sheehan, Patty Ackerman and Missy Beattie have been in court all week stemming from their arrests outside the U.S. Mission to the U.N. last March on International Women’s Day. The courts have been lacking supporters so I looked here & saw no call for court solidarity for these great women. Surely we can pack the courts, can't we? Here's an article about it when the trial started:  http://www.commondreams.org/headlines06/1206-03.htm more...  0 Comments

Support Parking Production Assistants and Coordinators Right to Unionize

Joe Hill |
Parking Production Assistants (PAs) and Coordinators work in the film, television and commercial production industries in New York City. There are over 300 workers and their jobs are to clear out and hold parking space at least 12 hours in advance of a location shoot to allow production equipment to be trucked in.

These workers are working on major productions in New York City, currently including 13 major prime time television and cable series programs, and over a dozen feature films and numerous commercial production jobs. One of the largest producers in New York City is NBC-Universal, which produces the "Law and Order" shows and the new hit TV show "30 Rock" as well as other TV shows and movies. The production companies benefit from publicly funded tax breaks; they should repay our community for that benefit by recognizing the rights of their workers to unionize.

These workers are predominantly people of color – Caribbean, African-American, Latino, and Asian. A super majority have signed union cards to join the UAW and want a union and a union contract to improve their standard of living and working conditions.
