What’s a general strike? Can we make it happen? – Toronto Spring Meeting

15/06/2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Join Spring’s Toronto chapter for a discussion of key political issues as well as socialist strategy and tactics. The rapid escalation that took place from Bill 28’s introduction on October 31 to its defeat just one week later shows that labour is actually capable of harnessing its resources and energy on extremely short notice. In this case, it had no choice: the pressure from education workers, rank-and-file members in other unions, and the wider public pushed the leadership into action. The existential threat of Bill 28 tipped the balance.

The question now is how could the labour movement start planning a similar escalation–for the moment these conditions emerge again (which could be sooner than we expect)–to defeat Ford on everything else we’ve been fighting for: reversing his privatization agenda, defending public services, repealing Bill 124, protecting the Greenbelt, defending labour standards, winning a $20 minimum wage and Paid Sick Days, and ending the misclassification of gig workers.

This is an in-person meeting at 720 Spadina Ave (near Spadina station), Room #202. We ask everyone to wear a mask. Doors will be open for light refreshments at 5:30pm and the meeting starts at 6:00pm.
