Labor organizers explain why they’re marching on DC for Palestine tomorrow (The Real News Network)

Original online here.

On Jan. 13, a second march on Washington in solidarity with Palestine will take place, following the record-breaking mobilization this past November. Conditions on the ground in Gaza have drastically deteriorated since the first national march, and the urgency of taking action has only increased. Input from labor has also only grown since last fall, with major unions like the UAW throwing its support behind a ceasefire. Yet for many, the question of solidarity with Palestinians remains a distinct issue from what some see as the core concerns of the labor movement. SEIU rank-and-file members Emma Mae Weber and Ryan Harvey speak with The Real News on why they’re attending the march on Washington, and why they think the voice of the labor movement is sorely needed on the issue of Palestine.
