Operation Solidarity- A Grassroots Perspective

Location

Room 1510 SFU Harbour Centre
515 W. Hastings
Vancouver , BC
Canada
British Columbia CA

Thirty-five years ago months of protests against the provincial government coalesced into Operation Solidarity and before it was called off by the union leadership, 85,000 workers had joined a general strike. Join us for a discussion of how protest against government cutbacks was transformed into a powerful strike movement and how that strike was defeated by its own leaders.
Join former Solidarity Coalition members Jean Swanson and Donna Morgan, and Lisa Descary, BCTF activist and member of the International Socialists, for a panel discussion of the lessons from Operation Solidarity from a grassroots perspective.
