I am VERY glad it has come up at the steering committee (which I am not on). But that makes the sectarianism even more criminal. As does the fact that the initial call appears to have come from a much broader milieu and already provided the opportunity to build a united front in NY for May 1st..
Plus, eventually there will have to be a fight against endorsement of liberal Senate legislation. So far in NY we've been lucky that everyone has come out against guest worker programs even though the SEIU nationally has been awful on this and even on the repressive non-amnesty provisions of the McCain-Kennedy proposals. The last thing we need is a separate sectarian group upholding radical demands on this issue, as opposed to a united front where a fight can be held for principled but inclusive demands.
I disagree that there has been no discussion of
May first. In fact, I believe the newly 'emerged' steering committee
for the A-10 coalition took it up so as to be part of the agenda for
the next assessment mtg. and planning for next steps. I have also
heard informal disucssion among some of the union organisers who are
part of the A-10 planning.
