November 26, 2008: Vote! You can help a news story on the liberation of hundreds of Vietnamese workers in Malaysia win the prestigious “Every Human Has Rights” award!

Here’s the background: The power of the media is such that the right publicity, at the right time, can free hundreds of workers from sweatshop enslavement. That’s the message from Australia’s national broadcaster, Channel 7, whose coverage of Vietnamese, Bangladeshi, and Burmese guest workers trapped in a Nike sweatshop in Malaysia has earned international attention. As many as 1,200 exploited workers may owe their freedom to this story!

Please read this Talking Union blog post for the full details of this exciting news, watch a clip of the Channel 7 coverage of the Vietnamese workers’ plight, and vote for Channel 7 to receive this human rights award! Voting closes November 30, so please vote right away!
