Solidarity Halifax presents a free screening + discussion of “The Take” (Naomi Klein, Avi Lewis 2004).
7pm, Thursday, August 22nd – rm 303, Dal Student Union Building
Workers all over the world have had to find ways to resist the most severe excesses of global capitalism. In Halifax, baristas are organizing against a system that views them as expendable and normalizes labour abuses and job insecurity. In Argentina a decade ago, workers were facing plant closures and the flight of capital. “The Take” is the story of how they fought back.
Join Shelby Kennedy, barista union activist, and members of Solidarity Halifax for a movie night and discussion about the global fight for workers rights.
