(en) US, IWW* Beckons Radical Workers - Midwest Wobfest 2006

Date Tue, 13 Jun 2006 10:55:38 +0300

It's time to line up for the Midwest Wobfest, hosted by the Twin Cities General
Membership Branch between July 14 -16, 2006. IWWs from around the country will
converge on Minneapolis and St. Paul for a weekend of music, history, and discussion
around how we build community and solidarity amongst the working class.
The festival schedule begins with a bonfire of discontent on Friday, July 14th with
food, song, and soapboxing.
On Saturday the 15th, there will be discussion forums throughout the day on - Wobbly
communication structure, industrial classification, regional organizing, dual card direct
action, Solidarity Brigade or One Big Union? - to name a few. We're honored to have
Brother Staughton Lynd with us for the keynote afternoon address on Saturday. A large
revue will close out Saturday, with several musical acts, one comedian, and a slide
presentation showcasing photographs and art of the IWW and other working people.

Sunday will offer a chance to take a labor history tour of the Twin Cities.
We'll also visit with some old timers involved in past struggles and others
engaged in present actions.

Certain events will be limited to card-carrying members of the IWW, with the
keynote address and revue open to the public. Free housing is available on a
limited basis, so please register early.

Registration fees for Wobfest will be $20.00, which can be waived upon request.
Additional festival details and an electronic registration form will be posted
at iww.org in the coming days. Questions on the weekend's events can be directed
to the Twin Cities GMB at twincities@iww.org or (612) 339-4418. Line up Fellow
