Tenacity Against Precarity
The global penetration of neo-liberal economic policies not only impoverishes and marginalizes workers everywhere, but has also created a world-wide precarity in employment, with the imposition of temporary, contract and expendable labor relations as the norm, even within social democratic or "paternalistic" capitalist systems.
We will view a series of short films, from the DVD-zine Precarity, that highlight the labor activism of flexworkers in several countries (France, Italy, Argentina, US, Japan, South Korea) and discuss the variety of strategies and tactics they employ (Legal actions, Street theater, Culture-jamming, Subvertising, "Reality Hacking", Media-squatting, Mass Action) against the conditions of scarcity, precarity, exploitation and dehumanization in their struggle for global labor justice.
