DEFEND THE FREIGHTLINER 5! - Solidarity Meeting March 29th

peter.lamphere@gmail.com |
THE FREIGHTLINER 5—Robert Whiteside, Allen Bradley, Franklin Torrence, Glenna Swinford and David Crisco—are members of the negotiating committee of United Auto Workers Local 3520 in Cleveland, NC. They were fired by Freightliner in April 2007 after leading a walkout when management broke off negotiations without extending the union contract. The importance of a victory in this struggle is magnified due to the historic weakness of the U.S. labor movement in the South. Join us in the spirit of solidarity with these dedicated and heroic trade unionists as they seek justice. more...  0 Comments

Hudson Mohawk IMC | An Iraqi born artist, now US citizen, Wafaa Bilal's work was shut down at the West Hall Art Department Gallery and will now be reopened tomorrow (March 11), but conservative public pressure threatens to close it once again. Wafaa escaped from Iraq in the early 1990's risking his life by crossing the Iraq/Kuwait border and is now a professor at the School of Art Institute of Chicago.
