Doc ‘Murder By Proxy’ Announces Screenings
Speaking of documentaries, Murder By Proxy warns employers that if degrading, toxic work environments are not addressed the risk of actual workplace violence and homicide becomes more likely. The film that uses the US Postal Service as the launching point for discussion is beginning its national screening schedule — Royal Oak, MI (3/13); Washington, DC (3/20); New York City (3/27); Los Angeles; and Seattle. You can now purchase the film by download or mail. Every union should own several copies.
Director Emil Chiaberi and Dr. Gary Namie will attend the Seattle screening and take questions (date not yet confirmed). MBP tells the ‘story behind the story.’ Its hero is real-life 40 yr. veteran mail carrier, Charlie Withers. Charlie’s insistence on telling the truth about conditions behind the Royal Oak Michigan massacre in 1991 has been the center of his life’s work ever since.
Here are Emil, the director, and Charlie.
Charlie came to Washington State to testify on behalf of our Healthy Workplace Bill in Feb. 2008. His testimony is captured in the documentary. Charlie is incomparable, the real deal, and a hero to Ruth and me.
