Class Struggle Along Global Supply Chains, Part II
Part II will focus on struggles over commodities sold on world markets, like the 35+ bread riots in 2008 that presaged the Arab Spring in 2011, as well as the battles of longshore workers handling the grain.
This presentation will show the links between revolts in Cairo, port shutdowns in Oakland, worker sabotage and wildcat strikes in Puget Sound, and militant actions by supply chains workers everywhere.
Empire Logistics maps the geography of these struggles in an attempt to foment militant action that spreads working class solidarity beyond these nodes, across sectors, and along supply chains to all corners of the globe.
An open discussion will follow. Presented by Gifford Hartman
