Recurring Trend?: St. Louis Union Hall to Host Communist Awards Ceremony


Is it just me or is there a recurring trend in St. Louis between Unions and the Communist Party USA(CPUSA)?


And now(finally), according to the CPUSA News, People's World, we have the 2011 CPUSA Hershel Walker Peace and Justice Awards Ceremony being held at the CWA Local 6300 union hall in July:

"St. Louis, MO: Annual Hershel Walker 'Peace & Justice' awards breakfast

July 9 2011 09:00 - July 9 2011 12:00

Missouri / Kansas Friends of the People's World announce Sally Kohn will be the keynote speaker.

Sally Kohn has been called "the progressive answer to Glenn Beck." She is a grassroots organizer and media commentator, translating big ideas for everyday audiences. Sally is the Chief Education Officer of the Movement Vision Lab, a grassroots popular education organization.

The list of this year's 'Peace & Justice' awardees will be announced soon.

The breakfast will be held at the CWA Local 6300 union hall.

Tickets for the Breakfast are $25 per person; $200 for a table of 10.Program booklet ads are $500 (full-page); $300 (half-page); and $150 (quarter-page). The ad program booklet deadline is July 1

More information about the Breakfast: Tony Pecinovsky, MO/KS People's World, 438 N. Skinker, St. Louis, MO 63110;tonypec@cpusa.org"

Ironically the anti-capitalist CPUSA wants you to pay $500 for a full page ad. What happened to spreading the wealth and sharing the ad for free?

Well as you can see, there is a disturbing trend that has developed in St. Louis between the unions and the CPUSA.

What I have a hard time believing is that the everyday union member actually supports these close ties with the Communists.

It's just a shame that they can't or won't do anything to stop it...

Because this association will eventually come back to haunt them.
