Book Talk with Kari Lydersen

Book Talk with Kari Lydersen from William  Hughes on Vimeo.

Kari Lydersen has penned an absorbing book, “Revolt on Goose Island.” It chronicles how 250 members of the UE, a progressive union, occupied a factory, “Republic Windows,” in Dec., 2008, located in Chicago, IL, rather then just meekly submit to its closing. It’s labor history at its best. This “direct action” came not long after AFL-CIO labor leader Richard L. Trumka denounced the evils of “globalization,” and the predatory schemes of the Wall Street boy-ohs. Ms. Lydersen’s “Book Talk” event was held at Red Emma’s Coffee House, a worker-owned store, in Baltimore, MD, on April 9, 2010.
