Dear Friend of America’s Survival, Inc.:

We have caught a top official of the giant labor federation, the AFL-CIO, stonewalling questions about her pro-Castro views and an illegal trip she made to Communist Cuba. The controversy helps to shed light on a problem with organized labor today – its penetration by socialists. 

We have posted a new report, with pictures, about AFL-CIO official Karen Nussbaum.  I confronted her on Monday about the time when she went to Cuba on a Weather Underground-sponsored trip under the auspices of the “Venceremos Brigades.” Nussbaum acted like she had seen a ghost and walked away.   She was obviously embarrassed.

Our report begins this way: “A top official of the AFL-CIO is stonewalling questions about her participation in an illegal 1970 trip to Communist Cuba organized by Weather Underground terrorist Bernardine Dohrn.”

Nussbaum could have said that she was young at the time, and that she regretted the trip and her expression of pro-communist views. Instead, she tried to walked away and stonewall my questions. This is not acceptable.

Will you help put the heat on Nussbaum and the AFL-CIO? You can contact Ms. Nussbaum’s office directly at 202- 637-5137.  This is the office of the “Working America” AFL-CIO affiliate.

What  do you think the reaction of “Working America” will be when they learn that their “leader” is an apologist for the Cuban Communist dictator? Please help get the word out. Please go to our home page and read our report.  Please send links to this report to the media and your friends and associates.

You can also call the AFL-CIO’s “media outreach” department at 202-637-5212. Please ask why Ms. Nussbaum will not address questions about her trip to Castro’s Cuba.

For America's Survival Inc.,

Cliff Kincaid, President
