Labor and the war in Afghanistan 

New College Cultural Center

The war in Afghanistan and the growing threat of an expanded war in Iraq have split the world trade union movement. While some South African and other unions have opposed the bombing and the war, the AFL-CIO and other unions around the world have supported the war. This forum will be the first public debate held with trade unionists from around the world about labor’s position on the war and what the labor movement should be doing about this war.

Support Immigrant Rights in the Wake of September 11 

The tragedy of September 11 changed the lives of millions, but none  

more so than the community of undocumented workers and other  

immigrants. Before September 11, this nation, from grassroots  

activists to DC politicians, was involved in a far-reaching debate on  

legalization of undocumented workers. The call for a general amnesty  

for 10 million workers extended from the halls of congress to President Vicente Fox of Mexico. There was hope for an amnesty program that would change the lives of millions of the hardest working but poorest residents of the US. Now racism threatens the progress made. The new USA Patriot anti-terrorism bill is now law and puts all immigrants at risk for arbitrary arrest, detention, and deportation.
