Susan Erem, co-author of On the Global Waterfront: The Fight to Free the Charleston 5, talks with the Old Mole's Bill Resnick about how the longshoremen of South Carolina were prosecuted on trumped-up charges of inciting a riot, and how, with international labor support, they were victorious. Bill and Susan discuss the political forces at play in the case. More about the book here.
