David Harvey - Emancipation from What and from Whom? @ Subversive Film Festival
I like Dr. David Harvey's idea of "organizing the food chain," and this Excluded Worker's Congress sounds interesting. "One of the biggest employees of labor in the United States are the restaurants. It's very difficult to organize restaurant workers unless you have a different set of organizing principles than a traditional labor movement," Dr. Harvey notes. I imagine Dr. Harvey would start such a project with immigrant labor, family farms, and farmers' markets, perhaps for instance with groups like the Sustainable Food Center, Workers' Defense Project, and Cooperative Texas in Austin, Texas. That said, accompany this talk with Jan Gehl's Cities for People @ FORA.tv.
