Building a Working Class Anti-War Movement

A workshop will be held this week to explore what a working class anti-war movement would be like. Subjects for discussion include: What are the cause of the present war, what would a community based working class anti-war movement look like, the need for internationalism and an overview of successful working class war resistence.

The workshop will be hosted by Norm Diamond, former President of the Pacific Northwest Labor college and co-author of "Power in our Hands" and Morgan Miller, long time member of the Industrial Workers of the World, former Chair of its international Executive Board and writer for the Industrial Worker newspaper.
