produced by Mimi Rosenberg and Ken Nash

presents a Special Program

International Labor and the War in Afghanistan

The WTC attack was a deadly crime which led to the death of thousands of innocent people most of whom were workers in the complex. We are witnessing in response another crime leading to the deaths of more innocent civilians But, this time the victims are in Afghanistan.

When President Bush and the US went to War with Afghanistan the American public supported the War overwhelmingly. Once the action was announced, the AFL-CIO ‘s President John Sweeney almost immediately announced the Federation’s support. While a minority of unionists objected, the US labor movement quickly fell into line behind the President. While Pres. Clinton focused on the motto ‘It’s the economy stupid”, Pres Bush, is equally focused on the War while the economy is going to its own hell as the numbers of the unemployed grow day by day

While most of the world’s governments have supported the war to some extent or another, many of those same country’s unions and federations of unions have dissented. While there is no sympathy for the terrorists who destroyed so many lives at the WTC, there is concern for the innocent lives already lost as well as those to be lost if the war is allowed to continue. To explore the positions of a number of key unions and federations across the globe, we present:

Jeremy Dear, an officer of the National Union of Journalists in Great Britain

Hassen Lorgat, Press Secretary of the Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU)

Karamat Ali, Education Secretary of the Pakistan Workers Confederation

Walter Johnson, Secretary Treasurer of the San Francisco Central Labor council.
