« Another side of the biofuel boom | Main | Meet Liberian labor leaders in DC TONIGHT! »


Congratulations on this!

Collaboration here worked because of strong leaders in the industry, and smart activists. It is important to remember that the voice of workers is the primary source, and when those voices are manipulated - or interpreted - by US activists, there is a possibility for misrepresentation and a change of message. Activists need to act as a microphone and a resource for these workers as they take strides and initiatives for their communities. Workers understand best the issues they face, and this understanding can be complimented well by US activists if done strategically, as with this case.
