REMINDER: Commemorating the Detroit Arab Workers Strike for Palestine

 
This is a reminder to attend our virtual event happening TODAY at 2pm PST / 4pm CST / 5pm EST ! Tune in via livestream video at facebook.com/uspcn !!!

On November 28th in 1973, 2,500 Arab auto workers shut down production at Chrysler’s Dodge Main assembly plant near Detroit, Michigan, in a historic wildcat strike called for by the Arab Workers Caucus. The strike resulted in the first ever "Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS)" victory in U.S. history — successfully forcing the United Auto Workers (UAW) to divest from their State of Israel bonds (over $300,000), purchased with union dues money.

Join USPCN-Detroit, virtually, on Saturday, November 28th, at 2 PM PST (California) | 4 PM CST (Chicago) | 5 PM EST (Detroit) on facebook.com/uspcn to commemorate this historic strike, featuring the following speakers:

GEORGE KHOURY - Nakba survivor, long-time Detroit based Palestinian leftist, labor and community organizer, and leading member of U.S. Palestinian Community Network (USPCN);

JEROME SCOTT - Founding member of League of Revolutionary Black Workers, member of League of Revolutionaries for a New America (LRNA), and board member of General Baker Institute; and

MIKE SIVIWE ELLIOT - former Detroit auto worker, retired leader of UAW Local 551, and member of Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression (CAARPR).

Moderated by Julia Kassem and Danya Zituni of USPCN-Detroit.
