EAST STROUDSBURG, Pennsylvania—Some 4,000 rallied here May 14 to support workers at the Pocono Medical Center who have been fighting for a new contract and against company union-busting moves since October last year. The 500 service, maintenance, and technical workers are members of Service Employees International Union Local 1199.

Militant Army volunteers from Philadelphia and New York sold 15 subscriptions and more than 50 issues of the paper. One new subscriber, Garfield Frank, a worker at Jamaica Hospital in Queens, said he wanted to understand why the Militant talks about “us” as working people internationally, not only in the United States, and why working-class politics must start with the world.
