Jacobin Reading Group: Power Through the General Strike
February 13 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm PST
On the 100 year anniversary of the Seattle General Strike of 1919, we’re talking about the power of strikes past, present, and future. We’ve got a little Seattle history, some socialist strategy on strikes in general, and a look at the recent LA Teachers’ strike.
