Building Bridges: Your Community & Labor Report
                                        National Edition
                Produced by Mimi Rosenberg & Ken Nash

Immigrant Workers Organizing Breeds Energy And Hope
For Labor Movement  
With
. Jacob Horowitz, Lead Organizer, National Guestworker Alliance
and the New Orleans Workers’ Center
. Joseph Sanchez,  Focus on the Food Chain,  Brandworkers' International
. Gaudalupe Palma Deputy Director, Warehouse Workers United, Inland Empire, CA.

Immigrant workers, documented and undocumented are on the move. They’re
organizing for labor rights and infusing the workers’ movement with new energy and
creativity.  We need to make sure every worker, documented or undocumented is
protected by our labor laws and we need immigration reform that allows immigrants
to be securely part of our country from day one—able to assert their legal rights,
including the right to organize.  Over two hundred million people, just about all of them
workers and farmers, are part of a great migrant stream, a human bond that connects
the countries of the developed and developing world. Who can see more clearly the
operation of the global economy than those workers? Who has a greater stake in
changing it? Who can help us to change our unions, and stop the hemorrhaging of our
workers organizations than immigrant workers?  Organizing immigrant workers is
necessary for the survival of our labor movement. If we are serious in wanting to build
political power, then we must organize immigrant workers, fight for their rights, and
make the movement for social justice one that belongs to all of us, documented and
undocumented.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:
Are you sure you want to remove this diary from your hotlist?
Are you sure you want to remove your recommendation? You can only recommend a diary once, so you will not be able to re-recommend it afterwards.
