Workshops on the Crisis in Boston

by Chris Sturr | April 20, 2009

A notice about a terrific popular economics workshop led by the fantastic Mike Prokosch of Community Labor United and United for a Fair Economy.

“Economic Crisis” workshop series starts April 21

Please join us for “The Economic Crisis, The Global Economy, and the Economy We Want” at Encuentro 5, 33 Harrison Ave, 5th floor, downtown Boston (near the Downtown Crossing and Chinatown stops).

This lively three-evening workshop will look at the ways wealth has been stripped from workers, the public sector, and “real economy” corporations over the last 40 years; how that wealth created the Wall Street bubble; the global dimensions of the US economy and crisis; and how we can transform it.

This Will Not Be A Lecture. We will form human bar graphs, stack chairs in outrageous piles, sing Wobbly songs, and generally have a riotous time as we rigorously examine our sick economy and how to make it safe for working people.

The schedule is:
Tuesday April 21: How did they get us into this mess?
Tuesday April 28: International Dimensions of the Crisis with Adrian Boutureira of United for a Fair Economy and Tim Costello of Global Labor Strategies
Tuesday May 5: Where’s our leverage? What’s our strategy? with Stephanie Luce of Solidarity

All sessions will run from 7 to 9 pm. Pizza will be served at 6:30; pre-register to insure space and pizza with the workshop’s sponsor, the Boston Radical Education Project, repboston[@]gmail.com or 617-491-2876. The suggested workshop fee is $5 and no one will be turned away.

See you there! Please spread the word.
Mike Prokosch (United for a Fair Economy and Jobs with Justice)
