Video from Labor Beat on Republic Occupation...

Here is a video from Andrew at Labor Beat T.V. I will have audio from last night's victory announcement press conference up tonight...

LABOR BEAT- "Workers' Republic: Scenes From a Successful Factory Occupation"When the workers at Republic Windows and Doors were notified their factory would close in three days, they took matters into their own hands. The union work force seized control of the factory for 6 days to demand the severance they are by law owed. On the sixth day of their occupation, they won all their demands, and showed the world's working class a classic example of people power (something not seen in the USA for decades).This short video from Labor Beat represents a fraction of our coverage of this historic event. The full 30-minute episode, "Workers' Republic," will be uploaded soon.
