In recognition of his courage, sacrifice and leadership, we honor Brother Mikhail Volynets, President of the Confederation of Free Trade Unions of Ukraine (CFTUU), with the 2004 George Meany & Lane Kirkland Human Rights Award. In the face of extreme political repression, employer interference and government corruption, Brother Volynets and the CFTUU are vigorous advocates for workers rights, democracy and social and economic justice.

We should never forget that the big labor unions are international socialist organizations.

(Unless we get over 40% of the Hispanic vote in 2008, President Hillary will take all your guns away.)
