Freedom to organise! National speaking tour comes to Brighton
The acting Secretary of the International Workers’ Association (IWA) will be speaking in Brighton on the recent repression of anarcho-syndicalists in Europe. The incumbent IWA secretary is one of the Belgrade Six framed on international terrorism charges.

The talk will also cover the Free Workers’ Union in Berlin (FAU-B) who have been effectively banned by bosses using the courts. In Germany, no workers’ organisation is legally allowed to take collective action or call themselves a union unless they can demonstrate an ability to negotiate contracts on behalf of workers, and under this rule the FAU-B have been threatened with massive fines and prison sentences.
