Labor Paeans By Jody Kolodzey, In These Times
Today, Local 1000’s membership roster reads like a who’s who of the political folk world, from stalwarts such as Joe Glazer, U. Utah Phillips and Pete Seeger to relative newcomers such as Ani DiFranco, Pat Humphries, Joe Jencks and Laura Love.

In some ways, McCutcheon says, Local 1000 is “the most telling thing that’s happening in labor music today. I mean, everybody that’s involved in labor music, number one, is a member, and at least as important is the difference it has made in people who never knew or thought about labor unions at all, and all of a sudden are passionate about the AFM.

I am pleased that Anne Feeney will be joining us. She has a concert on the evening of our march at the Longshore Workers Hall in Tacoma, I am on her list. When I saw that she was going to be in town I sent her an e-mail about our march and she stated that she has been a supporter of Leonard Peltier and would like to join us.
