Overview

 Organise2020

Part of Organise 2020 - the free festival of ideas in union organising

Far right narratives are on the rise and are being mainstreamed as authoritarian Presidents from Trump to Bolsonaro use racism, sexism and anti-migrant narratives to sow division. The coronavirus pandemic has been increasingly used by regimes to crack down on human and union rights. The brutal murder of George Floyd and the subsequent protests around the world has shown the ever-present need to organise internationally against systemic racism and oppression.

This session will explore strategies being used by trade unions and sister organisations to combat the far right in the workplace and communities and confront institutional racism and how we can build international solidarity.

Chair: Patrick Roach (general secretary, NASUWT)

Speakers:

  • Chidi King (director of equality, ITUC),
  • Tefere Gebre (executive vice president, AFL-CIO)
