Longshore Workers in the Fight, from Longview, Washington to Buenaventura, Colombia
Tonight's show features the current struggles of workers in two ports. First we speak with Dan Coffman, President of ILWU Local 21, about the Longview workers' courageous fight against the transnational corporation EGT, and how their community has mobilized and braved police brutality to stand up for good local jobs. Then we hear John Walsh's interview with longshore workers of Unión Portuaria in Buenaventura, Colombia, talking about the conditions in which they live and work, and their own workplace struggles.
