Class Dismissed! Capital's War on Workers and Democracy

November 18-20, 2011

The 2011 Parkland Institute Fall Conference explored the attack on workers and unions seen in places like the United States and Britain, and looked at the warning signs that this anti-public sector worker wave is already on its way to Alberta and Canada. The conference also explored the accompanying attack on democracy and how capital is working to hinder real action to protect our common environment and explored hopeful examples of resistance from places like Wisconsin and North Africa, and how we in Alberta can learn from those experiences.
