The March Against Corporate Greed (2012), a new film by Manolo Munoz – a videographer and member of the Communications Workers of America (CWA) – tells the story of a dramatic eight-day march for economic justice by union activists. In November 2011, a group of capital district CWA members, engaged in a struggle for a fair contract with the corporate giant Verizon, began a hike from Albany to New York City to call attention to the disparities in wealth and income between the 1 percent and the 99 percent. Joined by a few Working Families Party members and other CWA members along the way, they met up with 35,000 supporters of the Occupy movement at the Occupy Wall Street encampment in Zuccotti Park and, then, together with contingents from other unions, proceeded to a massive Occupy the Brooklyn Bridge demonstration.
This premiere of The March Against Corporate Greed, held in support of the Occupy campaign, provides a great opportunity to see this important new film, produced and starred in by capital district union activists. Admission is free of charge.
