Europe: From the Industrial to the Social Strike?

Peter sez:A new kind of unionism for both the old and the new kind of workers. A new kind of protest form: not the old company, industry or even national union strike but the 'social strike'. And bear with the Italian text pages because at the end there is a short list of demands which may not be 'revolutionary', in the old Leftist sense, but are surely 'emancipatory' in the new, socially-self-empowering one.Now click on the YouTube line...27 of 48,223 [Networkedlabour] Fwd: [Blockupy…See More

Greece: The New Frontiers of Labour, of Computerisation and the Commons

Peter sez:I've only looked at 5 minutes of this one hour video but am thinking that it is essential viewing for anyone concerned with labour, computerisation and human social emancipation. Holding all these together is the notion of 'the commons'. This is radically different from either a kinder gentler capitalism or from communism - tho evidently communism and commons-ism (if one can pronounce the latter) have something, well, in common? Perhaps, to avoid confusion with communism - which has a…See More
