Flyer Hitchhiker

Overworked and underpaid: our current working conditions rely on standards from a period of struggles. But they are getting worse year by year. Lots of complains but little resistance to keep some of our labour standards. However, more militant strikes take place in some areas of Europe.

What are the differences in workers organizing between N/A & the old world?
How do grassroots unions work over there?
Does an international workers movement still exist?

This workshop will guide you through the history of class struggle and workers movement. We will analyze key events of anarchist and syndicalist organizing in the Ukraine and Spain. We will follow the evolution of international workers movement from the beginnings of basic democracy to the current trade union structures of representatives. We will stress out the special union situation in Germany as a prototype for liberal economies and a challenge for grassroots unions.

We will finish our round trip through the ages and places of workers movement with the discussion whether and how this experiences can be applied to develop strategies for our current situation.
