Join trade unionists and worker as they discuss the wars in the Middle East and the role of organized labor in the United States. Why are US unions virtually silent about the war on Lebanon, the Palestinians and Iraqis and what are unions doing around the world on these issues. Why has the South African Congress of Trade Union President Willie Madisha said that apartheid in Israel is worse than South Africa’s apartheid? Finally what are the conditions of Arab-American workers in the United States?
