March of discontent: lessons in work struggles (Italy)

30-03-2013 20:43

The working class is awakening, and the mobilisations of the last few days among the logistics sector workers in Emilia Romagna are the first signs. Recently, we have seen two different images of work struggles: the Peugeot workers in Paris clashing with the police on one hand; and the sad, resigned-looking picket organised by Fiom outside a Fiat establishment in Italy, on the other hand. Both are fighting for their jobs, but the differences are clearly visible and stimulate many diverse reflections. The French workers’ determination in defense of their rights and dignity has spread to the Italian logistics sector workers’ mobilisation on March 22, and manifested in their determination to defeat the enemy. Workers of different backgrounds and origins, Italians and migrants, have united against the exploitation carried on by the worker cooperative owners and the main worker cooperative, the Coop.

Unhealthy influence: The rise of the NHS Partners Network

30-03-2013 09:39

The transformation of a small private healthcare trade association into a powerful and influential lobby group provides a clear indication of the direction the NHS has taken. Today the NHS Partners Network has some of the most powerful private healthcare companies as members and is a trustee on the NHS Confederation board. Social Investigations examines the development of one of the best-connected and most persuasive privatisation cheerleaders.

UG#625 - Jettisoning Accustomed Categories of Thought (Marxian Class Analysis 2)

29-03-2013 17:39

This week is something of a continuation of episode #624, featuring the second part of economics professor Richard Wolff on Marxian class analysis, and we approach the end of David Graeber's Debt, The First 5000 Years. I hope it works as an aid to help to rethink what you think you know about economics and politics and to jettison any categories of thought which you find unhelpful.

UG#626 - Where Communism Meets Capitalism (TPPA, Marxian Class Analysis 3)

29-03-2013 17:33

This episode we note some similarities between the so called extreme 'left' and 'right' ends of the political spectrum - when the government claims the ability to unilaterally decide how to run things, the stated ideology often goes by the board anyway. Bryan Gould discusses the confidential 'trade agreement' TPP, noting that it is less about free trade and more about subduing national sovereignty to the multinational corporations who devised it. In our second hour, we continue with Richard Wolff's Marxian class analysis, looking specifically at the 1917 Russian revolution.

UG#627 - The Progressive Process of Desocialization (Marxian Class Analysis 4)

29-03-2013 17:28

This week, two Marxist professors speak on the social impact of capitalism and especially in USA. First, Silvia Federici speaks on 'The Progressive Process of Desocialization', how capitalism breaks down communities and people's human relationships of care. Next it is the turn of Richard Wolff who applies his Marxian class analysis to the US household, noting that more and more adults are rejecting the traditional (feudal) model of domestic exploitation and either living alone or in more egalitarian patterns.

Radical Anthropology talks in London with David Graeber and others

29-03-2013 12:31

Symbolic culture emerged in Africa over 100,000 years ago, in a social revolution whose echoes can still be heard in myths and rituals around the world. These talks are a general introduction to anthropology, including the latest findings from genetics, evolutionary biology, primatology, cave painting research and archaeology. There is hot food in the venue and plenty of time afterwards for socialising in local pubs.

An expose on some disturbing practices of fundraising at the University of Nottingham Preying on and manipulating the elderly who may not understand what is happening...  this is documentation found on what appears to be a calculated attempt by the University of Nottingham (and related groups) at the destruction of a man's family using such techniques... in addition to other rather questionable actions--some in the US.  Doesn't the University care about its reputation?For shocking information about the predatory fundraising apparatus and apparent elder abuse at the University of Nottingham, see
