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.



UK and Iraqi Labor on the War

In 2007 Labor Beat interviews Jeremy Corbyn (Member of Parliament from Islington North) who discusses Tony Blair’s role in dragging the UK into the Iraq War. Also Hashmeya Muhsin Hussein, President of Iraqi Electrical Utility Workers Union, talks about resistance to occupation. Corbyn is of late in the news as the likely next leader of the Labour Party in UK.
