Today we interviewed:

Adwoa Sakyi from the General Agricultural Workers Union of TUC (Ghana). Adwoa spoke about the challenges of organizing women workers.

Therese Hulthen from HRF, the Swedish hotel and restaurant workers union. Therese spoke about her impressions of the IUF congress, including the women workers' conference which preceded it.

Teresa Mackay from the Transport and General Workers Union in Britain -- a lay member involved in the rural and agricultural sector-- speaking about issues concerning those underpaid workers.

Hemasari Dharmabumi, from the IUF Asia and Pacific Indonesia Project Office, speaking about struggles to organize hotel workers in Indonesia -- from the historic Shangri-La dispute up to the current struggle to organize the Hyatt chain. The interview ends with an appeal for global solidarity with the Hyatt workers.

And we did two interviews in Spanish:
