------------------------------
For a long time, North American anarchists seem to have abandonned the 
terrain of workplace struggles. But yet, the working class forms the only 
group in society capable of building a radically different society, a 
libertarian communist society.
 
We consider the participation of anarchists in unions and in the workers 
movement in general to be essential, because the resistance of workers is 
best weapon against capitalism and the State.
 
U.S. Anarchists will come share their experiences of involvement in the 
workers movement and unions south of the border. The goal of this is to 
make clear anarchist points of view on workplace organizing and to see how, 
as revolutionaries, we can take part in these struggles while making 
popular anarchist practices in the workplace.
