|The Festival aims to showcase student and professional films from the United States and around the world which publicize and highlight the struggles, successes and daily lives of all workers in their efforts to unite and organize for better living conditions and social justice.
In these past two years of unprecedented attacks on workers rights to organize – in Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana, New Jersey and Michigan by right-wing politicians funded by corporate interests –workers continue to organize and fight back. The recent huge victories in Ohio and New Hampshire against a harsh anti-worker, anti union bill prove that labor unions and workers united still matter – they are still vital to the dignity and survival of all workers in the US and around the globe.
Anti-Family and Anti-Worker Budgets do not succeed. Don't be fooled! The budget now being pushed by the GOP is a further shifting of taxes from the top 1% down to what remains of the working middle class and the working poor. Nothing in this budget document does anything to save our economy, rather it furthers the plundering of our community assets by those already legally avoiding their fair share of taxes. No Medicare, no Pell Grants, no school lunch programs, no senior assistance programs.
