Labor Beat

Selected Vintage Labor Beat Videos

From our video cellar -- we’ve dusted off these 9 shows from recent Chicago labor history. What were fighting for 4-7 years ago? Has anything changed? Have we learned anything?

These mp4 files were uploaded before our HD era, and then disappeared when Google videos recycled old uploads. We’ve now stored them on our own web site so you can see them again. Note: it’s best to watch them on the smaller screen.



Raid on a Nation - Japanese Version

This Labor Beat video is about a protest against FBI raids on Chicago activists back in 2010. Our video was then translated into Japanese as part of international defense campaign. This video was shown in Japan by Iraq Peace TV in Japan. It demonstrates that these attacks on 1st Amendment rights of peace activists in the U.S. are of serious concern internationally. Produced by Labor Beat.
