‘Class Power on Zero-Hours’ book presentation by Angry Workers
Sat 3 April, 2021 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PMPay-what-you-can
Join Angry Workers, a small political collective from London, to talk about finding new ways of building class power in tough times. What next for working class politics and revolutionary strategy?
“We will talk about the large logistical and industrial backyard of the metropolis. About the reasons we moved there to get rooted. We will talk about slow-downs and overtime strikes in warehouses and frustrations at factory gates at five in the morning. About our workmates from Katowice and Jalandhar. About the impact of Brexit and zero-hour contracts.
We will share our experiences with our solidarity network, an IWW organising drive and campaigns to stop local libraries from closing. We will talk about being union reps in two big unions and the limits we found.
We will make proposals about working class strategy and revolution.
We will also discuss our organising experiences in relation to the current attacks: the increase in legal repression (‘Kill the Bill’, police repression in Italy and Greece) and the widespread ‘fire and rehire’ tactics to cut jobs and wages. These are two aspects of the same attack.”

The School of Activism 2.0 is a two week programme of workshops, talks and activities brought to you by Peoples Republic of Stokes Croft over the Easter holidays. The workshops are intended to be empowering experiences equipping people with the tools to challenge the status quo, contest power structures and ultimately to change the world.
We learn by doing.
We make our own future.
School of Chativism
If you're feeling hyped about all this educating, and you wanna connect with other SoA students to talk about what you've learnt, and/or discuss the future of ethical social media, then this is for you...
"The School of Chativism is an experimental social media space that will run for the duration of the School of Activism 2.0. This is the place to discuss and share events at SOA2. But it's also a space for questioning what social media currently is, and what it could be, for activists and activism. We can remake it as we go, transform it throughout SOA2.“
