“Time for change in the labor movement"

Unions cannot effectively go on as we have. In the 1930s we had to  
move past craft unionism into industrial unionism; the labor movement  
today is again overdue for change. Today as the crisis of capitalism  
continues to unfold, attacks on workers and unions are escalating.  
What will it take to successfully resist these attacks? The labor  
movement is not going away; the question is: What internal and  
external changes are necessary to achieve lasting victories.  The  
talk addresses some of the necessary change, and calls for discussion  
and new ideas.

Our speaker, John Lambiase, was a long-time president of UE District  
6, which includes the GE locomotive plant in Erie, Pa. He led several  
successful organizing drives and struggles that resulted in good  
contracts. He brings wit and deep insights into important issues.

"Looking for Fidel"  2011, English Narration, 63 minutes

Come see Oliver Stone’s candid, in-depth conversation with Fidel  
Castro. Stone challenges Castro to explain actions following the  
execution of three political dissidents who attempted to hijack a  
ferry to the United States in April 2003. Castro's response and his  
actions were condemned throughout the capitalist world, further  
isolating Cuba. Stone was given unprecedented access, interviewing  
not only Castro, but many of the prisoners, their wives, leading  
dissidents and human rights advocates -- all of whom express their  
views forcefully in the emotionally charged environment of Cuba today.
