Two quick plugs: first off, registrations are now open for the Transnational Social Strike Assembly that’ll be happening in London in February. The organisers say:
“Following on from meetings in Poznan, Poland and Paris, France, we will be in London over the weekend February 10th-11th 2017 to further open up the debate and discussions. At its core, we seek to develop new forms of collective action, that go beyond national borders, making connections and linking struggles. The emphasis on new transnational forms of organisation and action is central to our practice. The weekend will focus on bringing together migrant, women and labour groups and individuals together.
We are putting together discussions will include:
The End of the Holding Pattern: Welcome to Brexit Europe
Right Populism, Left Nationalism: Migrants and Wages
March 8th Women’s Strike
Migrant Strikes, from US and Italy
How to fight the boss when your boss is a machine?
What is social in the social strike? Striking outside the Wage
All of these sessions will be led by a pairing of one UK group with international groups.
We invite your organisation to participate in this assembly and to share your experiences in how we can develop transnational solidarity and new forms of effective action. Please let us know if you would like to join in organising a workshop or to present and we will do our best to make space for you. Please contact us if you would like further information and add your name to the list of supporting groups (found at the bottom of this callout)
If you would like to attend then please register using this form:
We also ask if you can share the facebook event on your pages and groups.
We look forward to hearing from you.

Secondly, the Angry Workers of the World collective have put out a call for people to help with their ongoing efforts – a leaflet and meeting for workers at the ready-meal factories some of them work at, putting up new posters advertising the local solidarity network around West London, helping distribute the latest issue of their local workers’ newsletter, and also meeting up with people from beyond London who “share common hopes… (workers’ self-emancipation from capital, state and oppression) and who want to establish solidarity networks and regularly circulate newspapers or other publications amongst the local working class”.
