In these hard economic times, the work of the Seattle Solidarity Network (SeaSol)
has been very inspiring to me. SeaSol is "a volunteer network of working people who believe in standing up for our rights. Our goal is to support our fellow workers' strikes and struggles, build solidarity, and organize to deal with specific job, housing, and other problems caused by the greed of the rich and powerful." Or, in other words, SeaSol makes scumbag bosses and slimy landlords' lives miserable until they pay people what they owe!
A few recent victories of note: winning $22,000 for an unjustly fired employee of a major developer
, winning relocation money for tenants in a low-income housing building
, inspiring these violent (but entertaining) actions of a local restaurant owner
and a few months later, putting him out of business.
A few youtube videos to round the post out!
