FIREBRAND: A Voice For Portland's Ranks And File Workers

The first issue of FIREBRAND, a radical rank and file paper focusing on workplace and community issues has been published. Come and pick up some free copies to distribute in your workplace and community. The new labor collective Firebrand formed in the winter of 2003 from the need for radical labor organizing. We see all around us, in our workplaces and communities, the need to struggle against bosses, bureaucrats and all those who would profit from our misery.

"It's a rich man's game, no matter what they call it; And you spend your life putting money in his pocket."
