In Stand for People and Planet Over Profit, Green Groups Back Oil Worker Strike

In what may seem like an unlikely alliance, environmental groups are throwing their full support behind oil industry workers who on Sunday announced a widespread work stoppage over complaints that Big Oil companies "value production and profit over health and safety."

The strike, which marks the largest national strike of oil workers since 1980, was called by the United Steelworkers Union (USW) after negotiations with Royal Dutch Shell, which is leading the industry-wide bargaining effort, broke down.

We "have nothing to lose but our chains." We "have a world to win."
"WORKING MEN OF ALL COUNTRIES, UNITE!" (Marx & Engels, 1850)

So may it happen, to help save this planet.
