The General Strike:

Past, Present and Future

General strikes have toppled governments, put down military coups, won shorter hours, and forced employers to recognize unions. General strikes have shut down entire industries, and brought entire cities under workers’ control – at least for a time. General strikes demonstrate our enormous power, our ability to make a new world, should we organize to win it. They cause bosses the whole  world over to tremble. We will explore the history of general strikes, and the possibilities for rebuilding a labor movement capable of wielding so powerful a force.

Sunday, January 9, 2022 – 4:00 p.m.
