how migrant workers fight back

2-3:30pm on Saturday 19th June, part of the Beyond Resistance day school

Migrant workers are one of the most brutally exploited sections of the working class. Imperialist exploitation of the developing world and the globalisation of neo-liberalism have impulsed large movements of migrants to the main centres of capitalism in search of employment. Here in the UK these migrants are subject to low-paid and casual working conditions and intimidation by police and the borders régime.

What chance do migrant workers have of fighting back against multinationals? What good are the established trade unions to casual and migrant workers? What do campaigns like the struggle against UBS bank tell us about how to build solidarity?
