NYIHA MEDIA is pleased to publish a poem about Haiti entitled 'I Am Sailing on a Raft of My Bones' written by Anoush Ter Taulian, an Armenian Artsakh war veteran, 3/18/17.

I Am Sailing On A Raft Of My Bones
Quivering fingers are a sign.
Quivering fingers are a sign of life.
Stretching up through the concrete coffins.
Pressing on my breasts.
Come closer.
Breathe your caring into me.
So that I can inhale the sunrise.
It is so hard for us to breathe.
Mother Earth is also suffocating under.
Millions of tons of real estate developers rape concrete.
We are cracking, exploding, tumbling.
Releasing into each other becoming.
Scattered parts of an infinite universe.

How Hotel Workers Got it Right by David Bacon 3/5/17

Mayor Gavin Newsom went to a picket line at Union Square, in the heart of the tourist district. In front of the Westin St. Francis he declared the lockout was hurting city business, and that he would honor the union boycott of the 14 hotels until they settled. Hotel housekeepers, bell men, cooks, and laundry workers returned to their jobs, but without a contract. To pressure them further, the companies refused to deduct dues and turn the money over to the union. Rather than watch its income plummet in the middle of this battle, however, the union set up a system to collect dues by hand from over 5,000 workers. In the end, "it brought us much closer to our own members," said Local 2's secretary-treasurer Lamoin Wehrlein-Jaen.
