(en) US, NYC, March 14 @ Forum: ALTERNATIVE WORKER ORGANIZING and THE CRISIS IN THE LABOR MOVEMENT

Date Sat, 11 Mar 2006 19:29:28 +0200


LIBERTARIAN BOOK CLUB / ANARCHIST FORUM: The March Anarchist Forum
panelists from Workers Solidarity Alliance; Industrial Workers of the World
; Make the Road by Walking; Million Worker March
On Tuesday, March 14, at 7:30pm, the Libertarian Book Club's Anarchist Forum
will present a panel of rank and file labor group members who will describe
their response to the current crisis in the U.S. labor movement. This crisis
is one in which the established unions continue to decline in membership
and the recent controversies in the official labor movement have done
little to show a new way forward. At the same time the power of the workers
on the job and in society in general continues to decrease.

The panel will also present alternative ways of worker organizing that can
restore the power of the labor movement. Recent experiences with immigrant
workers in Brooklyn, with the Starbucks organizing campaign and with
rank-and-file struggles among auto workers and in other sectors around the
country have shown that workers can organize without bureaucracy and as an
integral part of a struggle within the community for justice and equity.
The panelists will draw on their recent experiences and place them in the
larger context of the needed changes in the labor movmenet today.

After the presentation the panel will have an extensive open discussion
among themselves and with the audience about the state of the labor
movement and strategies for the future.

The event will take place at the Brecht Forum, 451 West Street,
Manhattan (between Bank and Bethune streets) (212-242-4201).
Take an A, C, E, or L train to the 14th Street and 8th Avenue subway stop
or take a 1, 2, or 3 train to the 14th Street and 7th Avenue stop.

Everybody is welcome and invited to come and to have their say.
Admission is free for the presentation, but a contribution to aid the LBC is
suggested.

---------------------> ”IRAQ'S CIVIL RESISTANCE” <-----------------------
-> Radio Host and Journalist, Bill Weinberg describes the Hidden Iraq<-
@@@@@@@@@@> The February Anarchist Forum<@@@@@@@@@@


On Tuesday, February 14, at 7:30pm, the Libertarian Book Club's
Anarchist Forum will present Bill Weinberg, host of the Pacifica program
“The Moorish Orthodox Radio Crusade” and creator of the World War 4
website, where important but seldom seen news from around the world can be
found. Weinberg will provide a detailed picture of the almost never
discussed Secular Left Opposition in Iraq. These are the Iraqis that oppose
the U.S. Occupation, the Torture State it protects, and the Jihadi
Insurgents, alike. He will show how we can lend solidarity to the Trade
Unions, Women’s Rights Groups, and Community Organizations under siege in
Iraq.
After the presentation Bill will have an extensive open discussion
with the audience about the conflict in Iraq and how order and justice
become a reality.

The event will take place at the Brecht Forum, 451 West Street,
Manhattan (between Bank and Bethune streets) (212-242-4201).
