Building a Working Class Anti-War Movement
Working people are the true losers in war. On all sides, working class people are the ones who do the dirty fighting, have bombs rained on them and starve. When theyre not soldiers, they are subject to increased speedups and increased repression in the name of national security.
A workshop will be held this week to explore building a working class
anti-war movement. Subjects for discussion include: What
are the real causes of the present war; what a community-based working
class anti-war movement would look like; and the need for
internationalism. Well look as well at successful historical working class
resistences to war.
The workshop will be hosted by Norm Diamond, former President of the
Pacific Northwest Labor college and co-author of "The 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.
