Eric Lee: Creating a Global, Networked Unionism for the 21st Century (http://www.ericlee.info/blog/)

Peter sez:

In so far as I think I may have pioneered this language (now being energetically promoted by Orsan Senalp elsewhere on UB), I cannot but welcome this title. I note, however, that just as we are awaiting a spelling out of the Conference slogan, 'From Social Networking to Social Revolution', the meaning of the title of this piece is not (yet?) specified. I look forward to the specification…

Eric Lee: Trade Unions in the Democratic Process (of the Arab Spring) (http://www.ericlee.info/blog/?cat=8)

Peter sez:

This comes over to me as arguing for a European (or Western, or Israeli?) model for unions in the Arab world. Yet it ends with the slogan of the World Social Forum, 'Another world is possible?'. This would seem to leave open what kind of trade unions are necessary to bring about what possible other world.

Now read on...

Labour Start Conference Harmed by Anti-Israel Campaigners (Eric Lee, Workers' Liberty, UK)

Peter sez:

Whilst awaiting fuller independent accounts of Labour Start's 'From Social Networks to Social Revolution' Conference in Istanbul, we have LS creator/owner Eric Lee's account of disruption caused by BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) campaigners there. It was published by the Association for Workers' Liberty (AWL), one of the decreasing number of socialist or labour movements in the UK opposed to the growing BDS campaign there.

Eric says in his last paragraph that…

Hilary Wainright: Occupy Barcelona - but Where are the Unions? (Red Pepper, UK, via The Bullet, Canada)

Peter sez:

Interesting account, not only because it comes from the editor of Red Pepper (UK) but also because Hilary has always been pro-union and here marks their virtual absence. I would like to know whether the local assembly-based dockworkers' organisation, the OEPB, was also absent because it long had a tradition of joining or supporting other social movements in Barcelona.

“Get up, stand up: stand up for your rights!  Get up, stand up: don't give up the fight!”----Bob Marley

 The legendary reggae artist Bob Marley gave us some good advice. There are times when people do have to stand up for their rights. But there are also other times when it pays to sit down for your rights. In 1937, during one of the worst years of the…
