Newsmaker Awards

It was an overflow crowd with inspiring presentations and music at the People's Center in New Haven, CT on April 25 2010, for the People's World/Mundo Popular Newsmaker Awards presented to three organizations on the front lines in the struggle for good jobs. With unemployment at a crisis levels, the event was organized as "A Call to United Action to Create Jobs for All with Equality and Peace."

John Jairo Lugo accepted the award with three immigrant workers who had their pay withheld while working on a farm. They took their case to the Labor Department and won a partial victory. The exploitation they and others have experienced, along with outrage at the new anti-immigrant law in Arizona, is propelling what is expected to be a large march for immigrant rights and jobs for all on Saturday, May 1 in New Haven. Marchers will gather at Front St and Grand Ave and march downtown to the federal building for a rally..[2]
