Conducts research and collects data on the global history of labour, workers, and labour relations

Michael Bedford Collection

Some time ago we received from Michael Bedford his documentation/research collection on rightwing vigilantes in the Philippines and the support they found in rightwing Christian groups in the USA. The vigilantes were responsible for the killings of many human rights activists, left wing activists and labour leaders.

The documentation part of the collection will be available in November this year, but as part of his fieldwork/research he also did a lot of interviews in the Philippines, most of them directly after the EDSA revolution in 1986. These interviews are now accessible (although they still wait digitization)
