International Revolutionary Skype Series: Chilean Port Strike
Since 2011 countries around the world have had historic upsurges and have gained serious insight into the dynamics of struggle in this period. Advance the Struggle along with La Peña Second Generation proudly presents a monthly Skype series with revolutionaries from across the globe to discuss these massive social movements.
The first session will be with Chilean port workers who were recently on strike for three weeks. The event will take place on Tuesday February 25, 6:30pm at La Peña Cultural Center (3105 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley, CA). Below is a description of the event and the leaflets for the series. Hope to see you there!
Join us for a live Skype discussion with Chilean longshore workers who last month ended an intense three-week strike in their fight to end the casualization of labor and obtain retroactive pay from years of unpaid lunch breaks. Their struggle forms part of a coordinated network of Chilean working-class organization and resistance fighting for labor rights, better living conditions and universal public education.
This is the first installment in a series of Skype sessions with revolutionaries around the world, offering an opportunity to engage with their valuable insights and relate it our own tasks.

This looks like a great series — thanks for putting it together! I was hoping to make it to the Chilean skype last night but a different meeting lasted longer than I expected. Looking forward to Brazil!
Is there any way you could record the sessions and post them as youtube videos?
I second Mazin since I did attend the Brazil talk. It was very informative and gave texture and a great first hand account of the nature and dynamics of the struggle for transit and against austerity measures in Brazil. Great job ya’ll.
We are currently working on getting these presentations taped and online. Thanks for the interest!
