VoA covers DC Labor screening

Voice of America sent reporters to cover last week's screening of Who Killed Chea Vichea? at AFL-CIO headquarters in Washington DC.
...the producers say one thing is certain: the murder of Cambodia's top labor leader in 2004 hurt the country's labor movement.
The film, which examines the murder of Chea Vichea, who was then the president of the Free Trade Union of Workers of the Kingdom of Cambodia, was shown at the Washington headquarters of the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations—the largest federation of unions in the US—last week.
“The killing of Chea Vichea has weakened the labor movement greatly,” Rich Garella told the audience after the screening. “And it goes to show that a movement is made up of many individual people, but when you have a charismatic leader like that, it counts for a lot.”
The screening was sponsored by the AFL-CIO, the Asian Pacific American Labor Association and the Solidarity Center.
