I wasn’t sure about this, until I saw it, rather funny, if you know what the Daily Mail is like:

Update 1: Two for the price of one, thanks to entdinglichung for pointing it out, the Irish chickens are busy too!!

LabourStart’s Global Solidarity Conference.

leave a comment »

Just in from Eric Lee:

LabourStart will be holding its first-ever global solidarity conference this summer in Canada and we’d like to invite all members of our Facebook group to attend the event.

The conference will be held on 9-11 July 2010 at McMaster University School of Labour Studies, in Hamilton, Ontario.

We’re starting to put together a detailed agenda of plenaries and workshops based on the input we’ve received from trade unionists around the world.

Now we need to know who is coming and we’ve begun registering participants.

If you would like to attend, please register today:

http://www.labourstart.org/register.shtml

(You must do this even if you pre-registered — it will remember your details once you’ve keyed in your email address.)

Participants from developed countries are expected to pay their own way, but we are also raising some money — including from registration fees — to bring over trade unionists from developing countries as well.

This promises to be an enormously exciting and important event and I look forward to seeing you there.

Eric Lee

P.S. Please send any questions you have about this event to the organizing committee – canada@labourstart.org
