FDL’S BOOK SALON: Strike Back: Using the Militant Tactics of Labor’s Past to Reignite Public Sector Unionism Today. “During the 1960s and 1970s, teachers, sanitation workers and many other public employees rose up to demand collective bargaining rights in one of the greatest upsurges in labor history. These workers were able to transform the nature of public employment, winning union recognition for millions and ultimately forcing reluctant politicians to pass laws allowing for collective bargaining and even the right to strike. Strike Back uncovers this history of militancy to provide tactics for a new generation of public employees facing unprecedented attacks on their labor rights.” Come chat with author Joe Burns and host Douglas Williams, 5pm ET, 2pm PT.
FDL’s Movie Night: Propaganda. “Since it mysteriously appeared on You Tube on July 18, 2012, Propaganda has been described as ‘1984 meets The Blair Witch Project’, ‘A mouthful of scary porridge’, and ‘Even better than Triumph of The Will.’ ¶ Controversial to its core, this hard-hitting anti-Western propaganda film, which looks at the influence of American visual and consumption culture on the rest of the world from a North Korean perspective, has also been described as ‘either a damning indictment of 21st Century culture or the best piece of propaganda in a generation.’” You can watch the full movie here. Join Lisa Derrick and Director Slavko Martinov for the discussion Monday, 8pm ET, 5pm PT.
