Subject:   SPAM-LOW: [september17discuss] Work, Dignity and Social Change
 

That was the slogan of the Unemployed Workers Movement network (the

autonomous ones) in Argentina after the economic crisis in 2001.

 

Within each of these areas there were other specific topics - but they

kept with the generalities most of the time and it was quite

effective. It is also a lot easier to first agree to a few general

principles, and from there get specific than the reverse.

 

Dignity of course is less a demand and more a proclamation of

self/collective selves.

 

There is a long and wonderful history of sharing organizing principles

with social movements around the world. For example, the recuperated

workplace movement in Argentina uses the MST (Landless Movement of

Brazil) slogan, Occupy, Resist Produce.

 

Just a thought.

 

I will be in the Plaza shortly.
