Workers' Resistance to Occupation and Empire

Categories:
program: 
Labor Radio
program date: 
Sun, 11/09/2008

An interview with Jana K. Lipman, Author, Guantanamo: A Working-Class History Between Empire and Revolution.   Guantánamo has become a symbol of what has gone wrong in the War on Terror. Yet Guantánamo is more than a U.S. naval base and prison in Cuba, it is a town, and our military occupation there has required more than soldiers and sailors--it has required workers. This revealing history of the women and men who worked on the U.S. naval base in Guantánamo Bay tells the story of U.S.-Cuban relations from a new perspective, and at the same time, shows how neocolonialism, empire, and revolution transformed the lives of everyday people.  This also includes an interview with Michael Eisenscher, National Coordinator, U.S. Labor Against the War
