Webinar: Snapshots of Organizing Across Asia

Date: 

Thursday, October 17, 2019 - 9:00pm

Labor Notes and the International Labor Rights Forum are co-hosting a webinar on October 17 at 9:00 p.m. EST on how labor activists across Asia are building power in the face of multinational corporations. 

What are the opportunities and challenges for strengthening solidarity across the region? How can we organize in our own unions to build a movement that can tackle rising inequality across borders? How is state repression impacting how activists organize?

These are some of the questions we hope to discuss with activists from Japan, Myanmar, and the Philippines.
