Taking back our time - 3rd Rethinking Revolution discussion


Aileen O'Carroll draw on the stories and diaries of those working in IT company’s to talk about the secrets and contradictions of working in a global industry. The myth is that IT workers happily work a 60 hour week but like workplaces of a previous era, there is a struggle over the nature of work and the length of working time within our lives. The left tends to focus on the formal visible struggles conducted through trade unions. What can this other level of often individualised struggle teach us in the fight for a new world?

Rethinking revolution is a series of discussions in Dublin about the core ideas those of us who want revolutionary change think we have in common and so too often neglect to discuss. The discussions will be kicked off by an opinionated presentation of one or more approaches on these questions with the purpose of drawing all present into a discussion that we hope will continue long after the meeting. The talks are organised by the Outreach group of the WSM and inspired by those arguments we keep having in the kitchen at parties.

The discussions will happen on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month in Seomra Spraoi.

The discussions will start at 6.30 sharp as Seomra Kitchen has a 'People's Kitchen' every Wednesday from 7.30 (so afterwards you can get a tasty meal and continue the discussion.)
