Collective Action Works: Inside the Movement to Organize Media and Culture

Labour journalist and author Sarah Jaffe hosts a virtual forum on organizing in the media and cultural sectors. As the digital media union movement has not let up for more than five years now, and as the pandemic begins to recede, it’s time to take stock of what we’ve won, to reflect on new strategies, and to frankly assess the challenges that lie ahead.

Union members in new media and culture unions discuss what they’ve won through collective bargaining, what’s sustaining the push to organize amid the pandemic, and how equity goals are reflected in their campaigns.

Occupy! Ten Years After

What has been the legacy of Occupy, ten years later? How are we to locate the Occupy movement in light of earlier protest waves, such as the student uprisings of 68 and the worker protests that followed, or the anti-globalisation marches of the late 1990s? What new social and political dynamics has Occupy bequeathed us today? In this panel debate we welcome leading writers and thinkers on the Occupy movement to reflect on these questions as a part of our “Aftermaths” series of events.
