Public talk: From Precarity to Power: Class Struggle in the USA and the Return of the IWW

The global economic crisis of 2007 has increased the misery of life under capitalism for workers around the world, particularly the already poor and precarious. However, amidst the tragedy of increased exploitation and poverty, new struggles have erupted, each with their own potentials for human liberation as well as limitations. In this talk, US labor organizer Erik Forman will discuss his experiences rebuilding the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) at Starbucks and in the the US fast food industry, IWW participation in the grassroots workers' movement in Wisconsin and in the Occupy protests, and the potential for revolutionary unionism in the United States of America.
