Dan La Botz speaking on “Defending Our Public Sector”
Labor activist and historian Dan La Botz will speak about responses to the attacks on public-sector services and unions that have intensified during the economic crisis. In parts of Europe and across the world, people are meeting such cuts with resistance, but in the United States such organizing is just beginning. La Botz, a co-founder of Teamsters for a Democratic Union, has been instrumental in creating Defend Ohio, an organization of union members and social-movement activists who have begun organizing around public sector attacks in their state. He is the author of several books on organizing, including A Troublemakers’ Handbook: How to Fight Back Where You Work and Win!
