Come hear two presentations on what is happening with the movement of Los Angeles Truckers and how that fits in the logistics of empire and capitalism. The Los Angeles truckers have had a wave of strikes and struggles, shutting down the largest port in the country. Ernesto Nevarez will speak about his 25 years of experience organizing truckers. Gifford Hartman, one of the founder of the website Empire Logistics, will present on how the trucking industry fits in a larger terrain of how commodities circulate on the global level.
Come through to La Peña Cultural Center , 3105 Shattuck Ave, Berkeley.
Sunday May 4th 1-3 pm to hear both presenters.
Below is the flier for the event, a call for May Day actions at the port of LA, and a letter from Ernesto on his goals for the event. Hope to see you there!!
