Labor Solidarity Committee:[1] Mission Statement

The purpose of the Labor Solidarity Committee is to facilitate communication and relationship building between labor and Occupy Portland. Labor and Unions are an essential part of the Occupy Movement and it is the goal of the Labor Solidarity Committee to make sure that they are included as much as possible.

The Labor Solidarity Committee is made up of organized and unorganized workers. We aim to better educate labor unions and other worker-oriented groups about ways to get involved and support Occupy Portland. We also work to bring existing struggles in the labor movement into Occupy Portland.

We currently meet weekly on Fridays, from 5:30-6:45pm at the St. Francis Church. To get involved, email: maydayoutreach@gmail.com

The Occupy Movement recognizes the dire economic situation the country is in and is not held back by mainstream politicians. This gives the Occupy Movement an amazing chance to lead labor down the right path. There is a wide gulf between the demands that the labor movement and the Democratic Party are putting forward and what working people desperately need. Occupy would not exist were this not the case.
The Occupy Movement will be crushed if the demands being fought for do not connect with working people. A key characteristic of any powerful social movement is the appearance of successive, large demonstrations that draw in new layers of working people, students, and the elderly. The average working person feels impelled to join such a movement because they see their own interests reflected in the movement, and once they join they learn that their interests are the same as those of the others involved.

Hostile Forces

Summary: On 27 Jan 2009, the Huffington Post ran a story by Sam Stein titled "Bailout Recipients Hosted Call To Defeat Key Labor Bill".[2] The story included around five minutes of an hour long recording between federal bailout funds recipients. The call shows the firms to be involved in lobbying, effectively, with public money. The file released here is the full hour long recording.
