Book reading: Carlo Tresca: Anarcho-Syndicalist and…Bohemian?
With F.S. Rosa and Dr. Susan Greene
Italian immigrant Carlo Tresca was involved in some of the foremost labor struggles and fights for immigrant rights and against fascism and Stalinism of the early 20th century. Tresca was dedicated to anarcho-syndicalism--the principle that all workers, regardless of gender or ethnic group, should work together in solidarity and direct action to improve their working conditions and, ideally, to create worker-run collectives. The textile strikes in Lawrence, Massachusetts and Paterson, New Jersey were run along these principles; Tresca was involved in both of them.
F.S. Rosa, who is a member of SEIU 1021, will read from her novel, The Divine Comedy of Carlo Tresca, and discuss Tresca’s relationship to both anarcho-syndicalism and the arts.
Susan Greene will discuss plans to incorporate Carlo Tresca’s image into her mural “Re/Membering American Anarchism.”
