Call for workshop proposals

As part of a mobilization towards the 2013 Anti-capitalist May Day march, we are calling for workshop proposals for a one-day anti-capitalist teach-in, which will take place on April 7, 2013. This call out is aimed at any individual or group who would like to submit a workshop proposal for this teach-in.

We are looking for workshops related to May Day and/or labour, from an anti-capitalist perspective. Workshops can be introductory or more in-depth and either participatory or more of a presentation. They should be two hours in length.

Here are some potential topics: - May Day, international workers day; - History of workers' struggles in Quebec; - The abolition of work; - Alternative work (coops, worker-run factories, etc.); - Critical view of unions; supporting workers' struggles while being against work; general strike; solidarity among workers' struggles; - Temporary foreign workers, undocumented/non-status workers, Live-in care-giver programme, international division of labour / global apartheid, free trade zones (maquiladoras); - Patriarchy, racism and labour; - Domestic work; affective and/or immaterial labour; - Plan North and labour, environmental issues, indigenous sovereignty and resource sector workers; - Precarity, austerity and labour; changes to unemployment insurance; new forms of struggle in a time of austerity and workers' struggles outside unions; unemployed and poor people's struggles; changing nature of labour and social class; - Work in prison; unemployment and prison system; - Schools as a factory for the workforce.

Only anti-capitalist, anti-authoritarian, anti-colonial and anti-oppression workshops will be considered!

Groups are also invited to collaborate to put together a workshop.

Le verger au complet!

La Convergence des luttes anticapitalistes (CLAC) produit une série de podcasts sous forme d'entrevues nommée Le Verger au complet qui vise la diffusion d’informations relatives à l’abolition de la police et des prisons et à la justice, en abordant des thématiques telles que l'emprisonnement des migrant.e.s, la criminalisation de la dissidence et la justice transformatrice.

Alors que les discours libéraux présentent les violences policières comme l'affaire de quelques pommes pourries dans le panier nous proposons plutôt une analyse critique de la police et des institutions punitives: on ne réforme pas un système pourri, on l’abolit! Attaquons-nous au verger au complet!

Les idées et la révolte se partagent
