Class Four: Some Extra Bits

I discovered some miscellaneous goodness to share:

1. Remember the line "Si se puede" that the strikers shout? I told you that Cesar Chavez and others in the United Farm Workers used it as their slogan. Read more here.

2. I found this photo on Flickr, a photo sharing site. It is by Artful Dodger, also known as Kate. It was taken march 4, 2008 in Portland at Pioneer Square. Here's the caption

Human rights demonstration by with demonstrators wearing frog costumes and bearing "Si se puede" / "Yes we can" slogans.

3. There's a great list of videos and resources regarding work and workers on the Labor Studies site for Hofstra University.

4. If you'd like to know more about the National Labor Relations Act, this is a good place to start.

5. I just saw a trailer for a new movie coming to theatres about immigration starring Harrison Ford and Ray Liotta. It features a whole host of different stories. You can read a review here and click on a link to watch the trailer.

What have you found?
