Announcement :: Labor
Tomorrow: Workers Speak Out for Their Right to Organize
07 Mar 2006
-------------------------------------------------------------------
TOMORROW: WORKERS SPEAK OUT FOR THEIR RIGHT TO ORGANIZE!
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Wednesday. March 8.
6:00 pm.
Boylston Hall.
Harvard Yard at Mass Ave & Holyoke St.

Featuring...

*GERARDO CAJAMARCA, a former Coca-Cola worker from Colombia, who witnessed the campaign of violence against union workers there.

*SECURITY OFFICERS fighting for the right to unionize at Harvard.

*DINING HALL WORKERS demanding dignity and justice from Harvard.

*CAMILO ROMERO, Coordinator of United Students Against Sweatshops.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
What's this all about?

This is part of Harvard Student Labor Action Movement's new Right to Organize Campaign.

The campaign demands that Harvard support the right to organize by requiring all contractors to prove their neutrality towards organizing, and that Harvard immediately cut all contracts with
notorious unionbusters Coca-Cola Co. and Allied Barton Security.

Come learn first-hand how these companies are abusing working people from Boston to Bogota, and learn what you can do about it.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
But you want to do something about it right now?

*Sign our petition to the Harvard administration.
http://hcs.harvard.edu/~slam/newpetition.htm

*Talk to your friends, students, co-workers and activist groups about the Right to Organize.

Oh crap. So it's Dan DiMaggio and his slimy gang.
Re: Tomorrow: Workers Speak Out for Their Right to Organize

actually, no. it's just regular students, whether anarchists or progressives, united with dining hall workers, security workers, and coca-cola workers. dan's not here anymore, but just like anyone else who supports labor struggle, him and his "gang" are welcome to join us.

Oh great, platformist and Trotskyist university students, uniting with paid organizers, rent-a cops, and elected union representatives! A truly revolutionary coalition.

Security Guards and Campus Cops are not workers, and they are not part of the Labor Movement They are paid agents of the Capitalist class, they are hired guns to enforce the rules of this system and keep the rulers in power. No one should welcome them to a pro-Union platform. To join with them is to let the ARMED enemy into your camp....Know Your Enemy!

I have done my part to insult individual working class (read student) people. This caused them all to run to each others defense. Therefore I have done my part for woring class solidarity.

I put out the wolf call and they all herded up.

I participated in the refusal of work and the refusal of boredom--something more revolutionary than all of your sub-Stalinoid class-reductionist "speak outs" put together, waiting-rooms to the re-education camps that they are.

good for you, child of privilege.

I made 150 bucks on the stock market this week. So in truth, I did *fuck alll* for the working class.

I did, however, not participate in the working class, so I did help to reduce it's number and therefore the number of the so called oppressed. Maybe that will place the burden of "revolution" solely on St. John's Prep students.
You must feel flush with your $150

Way to stick it to the working class through proper investment. Assuming your stocks perform this well every week you could buy a million dollar house for entertaining your bourgeois friends in only about a century and a quarter.
Very funny but...
10 Mar 2006
Assuming you knew math, I could reinvest my weekly profits as new capital, increasing the date at which I buy my million dollar house to the rate of compounded reinvestment.
Stop posting to yourself, FLIPSIDE, you fucking moron.
10 Mar 2006
We all know that your life is so empty and worthless that you can't find anything else to do but post back and forth to yourself. Get a fucking job, loser.
Re: Tomorrow: Workers Speak Out for Their Right to Organize

Jobs are for losers.
Re: Tomorrow: Workers Speak Out for Their Right to Organize

Aww shucks, you caught me using simple interest instead of compound interest.

But it's still $150 for an entire week, and that's pathetic.
Re: Tomorrow: Workers Speak Out for Their Right to Organize

$150??? does this mean your wife saraphim can quit her job at bu av services???
Re: Tomorrow: Workers Speak Out for Their Right to Organize

That's a pretty funny troll post, but not as funny as the Boston Local Activists Database.
FLIP-i-CIDE, anyone?

Anyone game?

Clever.
