The first day in revolutionary Cuba

first_imgOct. 2 — The first full day of the 2017 “In the Footsteps of Che Guevara International Brigade” began with more than 250 delegates from 21 countries enjoying a well-prepared breakfast in the dining hall of the Julio Antonio Mella International Camp near Caimito, Cuba. As the morning progressed, many of the delegates slowly drifted away from the dining hall to explore the surrounding scenery of the camp before the start of the day’s activities.In the first item on our agenda, we marched to the monument of Julio Antonio Mella, a young revolutionary killed by the Batista dictatorship, for whom the camp is named. Upon our arrival at the site, a floral wreath was laid at the monument, and touching words were spoken by a Pioneer elementary school student in memory of Mella and the legacy he left behind.Delegations from around the world held banners, signs and flags to show their solidarity with the Cuban people. Banners from the Chicago, Albany, N.Y., and Washington, D.C., Cuba Coalitions in the U.S., and stunning banners from Chile and Greece, were joined by two handpainted Workers World Party/Partido Mundo Obrero banners. Both had portraits of Che Guevara and the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro.The bilingual banner demanded “End the U.S. Blockade of Cuba/Fin al Bloqueo Contra Cuba.” The other echoed Cuba’s internationalism by opposing the U.S. war against Venezuela, Syria, Iran and the DPRK as well as demanding an end to the economic war on Cuba. A delegation of Puerto Ricans held a banner calling for an end to PROMESA, the bankers’ colonial financial control board, designed to squeeze the last cent out of the island’s working class.Walking where Che walkedAs we returned to the camp, the air was filled with enthusiastic cheers,  “Viva Cuba! Viva Che! Viva Fidel! Viva Mella!”Following the brief ceremony, the brigadistas congregated in the camp’s theater to watch a beautiful slideshow about Che Guevara.The song “Che Comandante” was the background music, and overwhelmed by emotion, everyone began to sing along, echoing the happiness felt in our hearts for the legendary man who fearlessly helped lead the Cuban Revolution.We were greeted by Fernando Gonzalez Llort, the president of Cuba’s Institute of Friendship. One of the legandary Cuban Five, Gonzalez Llort was imprisoned in the U.S. for over 15 years for defending his country against a right-wing overthrow. We also listened to inspiring stories from four of Comandante Che’s former associates.The day ended with a hearty dinner of rice, beans, chicken and ox-tail, followed by more music, singing and dancing at the Noche Cubana as we became acquainted with representatives of the global movement in solidarity with socialist Cuba. Indeed, a beautiful ending to a beautiful first day, a beautiful beginning to the brigade’s visit. For the next two weeks we lived, worked and traveled together, walking where Che walked.Adapted from a talk given Nov. 11 at a Workers World Party forum in New York City.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img

Film review: “Signed, Sealed and Delivered: Labor Struggle in the Post Office”

first_imgPostal workers wildcat, 1978.“Signed, Sealed and Delivered: Labor Struggle in the Post Office,” is a 45-minute-long film made in 1980 by Tami Gold, Dan Gordon and Erik Lewis. On December 20, postal worker activists took part in a webinar where the historic film was viewed and discussed. Below is a lightly edited review, of the film originally published in Workers World July 10, 2013.On July 21, 1978, thousands of postal workers walked off their jobs when their contract expired, saying “no” to mandatory overtime, forced speedup and unsafe working conditions.As a result of the wildcat strikes — one took place in Jersey City, N.J., at the New Jersey International Bulk Mail Center — 600,000 postal workers won a better contract. However, 200 workers were arbitrarily fired by postal management for “illegally” striking.The film shows the above events and the struggle of postal workers to win back their jobs. And it follows their fight into the streets, onto the floor of the American Postal Workers National Convention and among workers and communities nationwide.However, it took the tragic death of Michael McDermott — a 25-year-old mail  handler who worked at the N.J. Bulk Mail Center in Jersey City, who was sucked into a conveyor belt and crushed to death — to bring their hazardous working conditions to national attention.Some points underlined by the discussion in the film are relevant to the biggest challenges facing postal workers today and to the current crisis in the U.S. Postal Service. A struggle must be waged to keep postal services public and push back privatization; the community and labor must get involved to save the Postal Service.The film can be viewed at Hirsch is a retired mail handler who participated in the wildcat strike of 1978. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img
