    RADIO FREE CBC: A 21ST CENTURY STRIKE NEWSPAPER - via email from LabourStart
    Locked out workers at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation have been pushing the envelope with their use of the new communications technology, as the dispute enters its second week. A good source of information about the dispute is the union's new website, http://cbcontheline.ca/

    They have also been creating the equivalent of a traditional strike newspaper, but have done so using cutting edge technology -- streaming multimedia, MP3 and podcasts.

    To make their content easily accessible to trade unionists around the world, we're stopping all regularly scheduled broadcasts on our online radio station, Radio LabourStart, and switching over to broadcast these alternative radio programs created by the locked-out CBC workers. We will broadcast nothing else until the lockout ends. To tune in, visit http://radio.labourstart.org

    Show your solidarity with the CBC workers by listening to their broadcasts on Radio LabourStart today. Tell your co-workers to tune in as well. Spread the word!

    Thanks.
    Eric Lee
