This is the Nottingham leg of the national speaking tour on the recent state repression of independent workers' organisations in Europe.
In Serbia, 6 members and associates of ‘Anarcho-Syndicalist Initiative’ (ASI), the Serbian section of the International Workers’ Association (IWA) have been framed for ‘International Terrorism’ after a different group threw a petrol bomb at the Greek embassy in Belgrade, causing minor damage totalling just £18 (yes, eighteen!). They have already spent over three months in prison awaiting trial. More information:
Meanwhile in Germany, the Berlin IWA section FAU-B (the Free Workers Union) has been effectively banned by bosses at the Babylon Cinema through the courts. Workers at the cinema joined the FAU as a radical alternative to the existing union. The German court has now banned FAU from organising and some of its members face possible prison sentences. More information.
Main speaker: Secretary of the International Workers’ Association (IWA)
