How Workers Can Win: Class Struggle Today

*** Important information ***

Between the time of us requesting a room at SOAS for this event and receiving confirmation, a strike has been called by the University and College Union (UCU) over pension pay, with this one of the dates affected.

Neither Haymarket Books nor the speakers at this event

wish to undermine the strike in any way. As such, we will confirm a new date for the event as soon as possible. Please stay tuned for more information.

More speakers TBC.

We are often told that neoliberalism has produced an atomised, precarious and powerless working class unable to fight back. This talk challenges this view by looking at how globalisation has created new concentrations of capital and recomposed the working class; in the process, new sites of struggle have emerged in which workers can still exercise tremendous power and pose a formidable challenge to capital. If we can identify these sites and organise effectively, workers can still win. This is an essential topic for anyone on the left considering how we might win power and transform people’s lives in the era of globalised, neoliberal capitalism.

This is a free event, but registration to secure a place is encouraged.
