Building Bridges: Supporting Immigrant Labor, Fighting For Their Rights , Segment 1

2 semaines 6 jours ago
Supporting Immigrant Labor, Fighting For Their Rights with Pablo Alvarado, executive director, National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON) and Kent Wong, director of the UCLA Labor Center and Director of the UCLA Labor Center and founding president of the Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance Whether immigrants workers, documented or undocumented seek to hold crooked and exploitative bosses accountable for wage theft, and pay that is below the prevailing wage or work just too many hours for too little pay and benefits and are subject to abusive treatment to their personage, such as sexual harassment or want the freedom to push for decent jobs and organize unions without risking arrest, they deserve legal protections. Now with Trump threatening to bring a reign of lawlessness to American cities, the most precarious workers are subjected to more militarized and extensive workplace raids, mass arrests, family separation and expedited deportations. Then there is the all-too-familiar story of scape-goating immigrant workers and deliberately pitting them against American workers as big corporations cut wages as they seek to reap bigger profits. They replace one set of workers with another"from other regions or other countries"or by automating work. Meanwhile, CEO pay and bonuses continue to rise while workers wages fall. When you are scrambling to find work or getting beat out for a job by someone willing to work for less, theres an allure to an anti-immigrant stance. But taking that bait doesnt get us very far. The issue may not come up in contract talks, but a safe, fair workplace regardless of immigration status is key to social inclusion, promoting economic fairness, and helping communities exercise the rights they do have"especially those without a say in who gets elected to office. Migrants seeking asylum and immigrant workers arent pulling the strings of our rigged economy. Those making the decisions that cause economic hardship can more likely be found at Mar-a-Lago, not at the border. If we dont focus on holding the ultra-rich and greedy corporations accountable, workers will continue losing. All the raids in the world will not help native-born and documented workers with job security. This false notion that we are in competition with immigrants limits our ability to see each other, even when the collateral damage is children. At this moment, wealthy corporations and billionaires, not immigrant children and their parents, are sacrificing workers for profits. We should see this as a warning. When people are so dehumanized that forcing kids to sleep in kennels becomes acceptable, the value of life for everyone goes down. Instead of scapegoating children, mothers and fathers, we should reconnect with our humanity and demand change from the true source of our hardship: an out-of-control corporate class. Lets be clear: We have found the culprit, and its not our fellow workers and certainly not children.

This Week In Palestine: James Zogby, renowned pollster and president of the Arab American Institute, speaks out on media silence, Segment 1

2 semaines 6 jours ago
AAI (located in Washington DC) serves as a political and policy research arm of the Arab-American community. Zogby was born in the US of Palestinian parents, and is an important Palestinian voice that needs to be heard. Unfortunately, just when Palestinian voices need to be elevated, they are heard less and less frequently in our media, and here he speaks to that issue. Zogby's pertinent book is Arab Voices: What They Are Saying to Us, and Why it Matters (St. Martin's Press, 2012). Here are a couple of the reviews: “Jim Zogby has written an essential and enlightening book on Arab opinion. Arab Voices is a must read for anyone who wants to hear true voices from the Arab world.” ―Her Majesty Queen Noor of Jordan “Arab Voices is a breakthrough book. Finally, after decades of relentlessly ignorant or bigoted stereotyping of the so-called ‘Arab Mind' - often a form of anti-Semitism against Arabs - by partisans having other agendas, James Zogby responds. He presents the results of intensive polling, within historical, political and cultural contexts, in an engrossing search for accuracy, fairness and truth. Let's see if the slanted press and the wrathful cable-talk radio hosts can tolerate giving this book and its calm author a chance to correct the record.” ―Ralph Nader On May 22, 2018, he spoke to the Jerusalem Fund and Palestinian Center, where he was introduced by its director, Mohamed Mohamed.

1968 & 2018: Unite Against War and Police Violence!, Segment 2

2 semaines 6 jours ago
The Chicago Committee Against War and Racism held a rally and march, Saturday, August 25th, under the theme: “1968 & 2018: Unite Against War and Police Violence!” The rally was intended to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the watershed anti-war protests at the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago, while not being an exercise in nostalgia but the building of a new independent people’s movement against the U.S. government’s constant war-making and the related struggles against racism, poverty and police repression. The march from Daley Plaza to the General Logan Statue, site of iconic confrontations during the police riots and across from the Hilton Hotel were the delegates and press were staying, was addressed by Rich Whitney. That portion has no audio recording. Ahead of the event several people who experienced the "68 DNC" gave short remembrances.
