SEIU RN Dian Palmer Calls on AFL-CIO Head John Sweeney to Review Video From Dearborn Protest, Retract Statement Accepting CNA Distortions
Date:4/24/2008

orkers in Ohio -- the CNA and Labor Notes organizers have made sweeping and inaccurate claims of "violence by protesters." Last week, Sweeney issued a statement condemning SEIU members' role in the protest based on misrepresentations by the CNA and other Labor Notes conference attendees.

"I was quite surprised to learn that you had accepted the untruthful accounts of what happened in Dearborn as a 'violent attack orchestrated by SEIU -- and even put out a press statement to that effect -- despite the fact that you weren't even there," said Palmer, in the video message. "I appeal to you -- as a leader of the American labor movement, as a former member of SEIU, and as man of faith -- to help us put the false and misleading stories to rest."

VIDEO CONTRADICTS CNA'S, LABOR NOTES' CLAIMS OF VIOLENCE

Raw video footage directly contradicts the distorted stories presented by the CNA and Labor Notes shortly after the conference. The footage of the entire 15-minute protest shows a mostly female crowd of nurses, hospital workers, nursing home workers, home care workers, and their children picketing and chanting. After a brief period of tension when SEIU members were blocked from entering the hall, the protestors dispersed. Raw video footage available at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CC95ZMRnkrQ and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjeRyPOwnPk&feature=user.

A video by the Labor Video Project also tells a different story than the one being disseminated by the CNA -- not only about the Dearborn protest, but also about the union elections in Ohio. The video features an interview with Susan Horne, a registered nurse with CHP in Cincinnati, who responds to questions from an angry conference participant concerning the protest.
