Last week on LabourStart: New campaign, new live events, and a new intern

Iran: We have reached out to IndustriALL who will probably sponsor a campaign with us in support of striking oil workers next week.

Myanmar: The campaign is growing slowly, and after 8 days online has just 3,835 supporters. A followup mailing to some 70,000 names on the English list is going out today. A Burmese language version has been prepared. We asked the global unions if they wanted to host a live event and they are now consulting about this.

Puerto Rico: The campaign went live last Friday and has grown quickly (4,624 supporters in the first 6 days).  As a result, we now have a fairly large number of campaign supporters in Puerto Rico (406 in Spanish and 150 in English). In addition, the union has agreed to hold an online event hosted by LabourStart.

Campaigns: We discovered a bug in the software that showed the wrong error message if you failed to select a country; this has now been fixed.

Intern: We have a new intern working with us from this week – Cam Cannon, from the University of Manitoba, in Canada.
