Labor Beat: The Penthouse of Heaven {LB499}

Chicago's Immigrant Rights/Workers Rights March, May Day 2006

On May Day, 2006 the largest march ever in Chicago took place--to support the rights of immigrant workers. Estimates of the size of the march ranged from 400,000 to 700,000!

Labor Beat's 27 minute documentary about that event and what led up to it: The earlier March 10 massive march which kicked off a national immigrants rights movement; Follow-up community planning meetings for the next big march; The emerging role of the unions in this struggle, including the press conference on April 24 at Haymarket Square, with Chicago Federation of Labor (AFL-CIO) and Change To Win speakers; The last minute preparations of the organizers on the eve of the march; The launch point activities at Union Park on march day.

The video contains interviews with union spokespeople from UNITE HERE, UFCW, SEIU, Carpenters, U.E., and others, including Jorge Mujica of the March 10 Committee, and a speech at the Haymarket Square ceremony by James Thindwa (Chicago Jobs with Justice) reminding us that the negative effects of NAFTA have been forgotten in the national discussion about border crossings from Mexico. The message of the video also criticizes guest worker schemes, and it calls for unionization, not just legalization, of immigrant workers, and for living wage legislation.

The march participants remind us with their signs and in eloquent statements that this protest was not only about Mexican/Hispanic immigrants, but about all immigrants, from Poland to India to the Philippines. Labor Beat's video about this historic day in the movement for social justice.

Labor Beat: Resolution 53: How the AFL-CIO Stood Up Against the War {LB484}

This Labor Beat documentary follows the story of the creation of a moment in labor history. At its 2005 Convention, the AFL-CIO for the first time passed a resolution against an ongoing war--the war in Iraq.

The video shows the preparations for this breakthrough, how U.S. Labor Against the War worked at the Convention to strengthen the Resolution Committee's initially weak resolution. It shows how USLAW used the momentum of its 2005 Iraq Labor Tour and the 18 anti-war resolutions passed by labor bodies around the country; how Resolution 53 was amended; how the discussion was moved up to a prominent point of the Convention agenda through Jesse Jackson's call to "bring the troops home"; how Resolution 53 was debated on the Convention floor; and the celebratory Iraq Forum, with labor representatives from Iraq and Kurdistan immediately after the resolution passed.

"Resolution 53: How the AFL-CIO Stood Up Against the War" captures two days in July 2005 that will be remembered as a turning point in labor's fight against the war.
