Confronting Racism Against Obama/ Richard Trumka
- Dear All,
I know that many of u are following the elections in the US - it is
really such a tense time - progress will only come by electing Obama.
Some of the speeches I have seen are amazing - rekindling a relationship
with politics that have been so violently taken from us. This is a
really great speech by Richard Trumka and I would really advise you all
to watch the 7mins40..and in general follow the thread on confronting
racism against Obama.. it is very interesting despite the horror of what
would happen if the neo cons got in again ...bests anjx
an extract from a recent speech by Richard Trumka, former
President of the United Mine Workers of America.

was 10 points in the lead before polling day in new hampshire!
