    As I remarked up-thread, every union victory in the South is a social movement. Struggles here take on a community and social character more than they do elsewhere, especially because workers and unions know they need allies.

    So yes ... this was a victory for LOTS of forces who organized to help the Smithfield workers.

    Solidarity forever.
