Our friends at Pluto Books are hosting a series of Webinars which we think will be of interest to all members of the Anti*Capitalist Resistance.
Join Pluto Press, the Wildcat book series and a host of activists and authors from across the world for How We Organize! Radical lessons from workers' struggles around the world, a series of webinars discussing the innovative new tactics, strategies and objectives of worker organizing and independent unions today. The webinars will be hosted via Zoom and will include open discussions and Q&As with the speakers.
Foxconn is the world’s largest electronics supplier, manufacturing many of the world’s iPhones, iPads and Kindles. The factory in Shenzhen, China, is one of the busiest in the world, and the conditions at the factory are notoriously grim. In this webinar, we will analyze the buyer-driven global production chain structures, the impact on Chinese factory workers' well-being, and the bottom-up struggles initiated by aggrieved workers and their supporters. Further reading: Dying for an iPhone: Apple, Foxconn and the Lives of China’s Workers.
