Building Revolutionary Unionism Anywhere Means Building Revolutionary Unionism in the South


This is a recording from the IWW Southern Speaking Tour event which took place in Houston, TX, earlier this summer. The IWW Southern Speaking Tour saw events in 13 different Southern Cities and was probably the largest coordinated IWW activity across the South since the 1930s. We hope that it’s just the prelude to much more.

Many thanks to the comrades and fellow workers at Subversive Skype who recorded and originally posted it online.
