Organizer/Author
This conference will bring together labor video, computer and media people from throughout the country and around the world. It will be a critical arena for the development of labor©ˆs media in the battles ahead to make our voices heard. We know that our unions and the working class as a whole are under attack on numerous areas and that this assault is escalating. Under these circumstances, the need to have a media counter-offensive is absolutely essential.
