This Summer, the Work People’s College, our union’s summer academy and retreat, which has been revived since 2012, will, for the first time, also take place in Europe. We invite all IWW groups to come to Berlin from 24-27 July, to take part in this 4-day gathering, with trainings, workshops, and socialising for little and adult wobblies alike! The workshop programme and encounters are aimed to equip new members with the skills needed to build branches, organise and fight struggles to win, and for us all to plan how to build the One Big Union together.
We hope to bing together more than fellow workers from across Europe to learn what we need to build and contribute to a global revolutionary worker’s movement.
For suggestions, questions, or to help the work along (and we’d be really grateful for that!), please contact the planing committee: europe [at] workpeoplescollege [dot] org
We hope to meet many of you next summer in Berlin!
We want the Work People’s College to be accessible for all fellow workers. For 4 days with rooms and camping on a lake, including catering and workshops we will need about 100 euros per person, and we’d also like to give travel stipends to those, who can’t come otherwise. To help pay for this, we’d like branches and members to help fundraise and also, when they can, to donate:
