Bernie Sanders speaks to striking UAW members in front of the Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant. This video was recorded Sept. 25.  During his speech, he thanked auto workers for standing up against a big corporation and marched along with auto workers.

This video is part of TSE features editor Sean Taormina's article about WSU student organization Young Democratic Socialist of America aiding UAW workers who are striking.

Since the strike of roughly 48,000 UAW-represented General Motors workers began on Sept. 16, groups of Wayne State students have been organizing in their free time between classes to donate supplies, join picket lines and offer support in whatever ways they can.
