Een transnationale discussie over migratie & arbeidsverhoudingen en  
daarmee samenhangende conflicten. Migratie en media-activisten,  
tezamen met onderzoekers en vakbondsorganizers analyseren best  
practices in de strijd tegen precaire en onzekere arbeidsvoorwaarden  
en delen inspirerende voorbeelden van nieuwe organisatie- en  
vakbondsvormen voor sociale gerechtigheid. Zij laten daarnaast nieuwe  
creatieve campagnes zien, zoals de ‘Justice for Janitors’-campagne in  
de V.S. en de ‘Schoonmakers voor een betere toekomst’ in Nederland (www.beteretoekomst.org 
  ).

Het doel is om traditionele vakbondspraktijken ter discussie te  
stellen en om activisten, academici, mediamakers en kunstenaars te  
inspireren om zich aan te sluiten bij hedendaagse arbeidsconflicten.

Met: Enrica Rigo (migratie onderzoeker); Marcel van der Linden  
(Arbeids Historicus); Zoe Romano (Chainworkers); Nico Scuglia  
(Oficinas Sociales); Massimo De Angelis (the Commoner); Dagmar Diesner  
(No Borders London); Seoren Kohler (Multitude); Hagen Kopp (Migratie  
Activist).
Voorafgegaan door een lancering van het boek Urban Politics Now! (NAi  
2007).

Migration and media-activists gather with theorists and labour  
organizers to discuss and share best practices in the fight against  
precarity and insecure labour conditions. Sharing inspiring examples  
of social justice unionism and creative campaigning like “Justice for  
Janitors” in the U.S. and “Cleaners For a Better Future” in the  
Netherlands.

The aim is to challenge traditional labour practices, syndicate and  
inspire a sharper network of social activists, academics, media makers  
and artists to join contemporary urban labour struggles and  
confederate into a globalization from below.

14:00 – 15:30: Start main program

panel #1 Towards a Globalisation from Below

value struggle
-Enrica Rigo, Contested Migrant Citizenship in Europe
-Marcel van der Linden, Organizing and New Labour Internationalism
-Hagen Kopp, Forging a Transnational chain of migration-activism

Globalization has brought us an increasingly integrated global circuit  
of large corporations and financial conglomerates, which have  
concentrated power in fewer and fewer hands. On the other side, we can  
find an emerging globalization from below, that of migrants, labour  
struggles and social activists, claiming space and redistributing  
wealth.

15:30-16:00: Break with possibility of sandwich and conspiring.

16:00- 17:15: panel #2 Syndicalism 2.0

-Dutch Cleaners Campaign (Herrie Hoogenboom,organizer FNV Bongenoten)
-Migrant labour struggles in South Spain (Nico Scuglia, Indymedia  
Estrecho)
-Filipino Migrant Domestic Workers Union (Fe Jusay - CFMW)
-German Retail Strike (Franziska Bruder, Verdi)

Examples of campaigns that have brought inspiration and innovation  
back to labour, revolving around organizing and social movement  
unionism, building community, going back to the base and out of the  
office.

17:15-18:30: panel #3 No Longer Invisible: Labour & Media

-Zoe Romano (Chainworkers Milano), interventions of a bio syndicate
-Merijn Oudenampsen (Betere Toekomst), Mediawork in Dutch Cleaners  
Campaign
-Soeren Kohler (Multitude e.V) : Media-activism and worker  
participation at German Retail strike
-Dagmar Diesner (NoBorders London), Screening Underground Londoners

Media-activism has provided a vital ingredient to new campaigns, to  
visibilize what normally remains hidden from view. Media-activists  
showcase their work, and discuss issues of participation and  
representation.
