Movie Series: “Who Is The International Working Class Today?”

March 21, 2021

There are many discussions today about the nature of the working class and their capacity to fight for their own interests. Usually, we look at history to learn about the workers' movement, but what potential exists in the modern international working class? What does a modern workers’ struggle really look like? What recent examples are there of workers organizing against the conditions they face and exerting their power? Join us in this movie series as we explore these questions by looking at workers' struggles that happened in our lifetime.


Coming for A Visit

Undocumented migrants win the battle to get their papers. A historic strike filmed from within.Paris, 2009. More than 6000 undocumented migrants (sans-papiers) go on strike to demand their legalization. These are restaurant, construction, and janitorial workers who pay taxes and are all exploited by staffing companies who refuse to help them get their papers!
Coming for a Visit, shows the hard day-to-day work of organizing, the challenges of dealing with unions, and the key role that revolutionaries can play. Oh, and did we say these workers won?! This is an inspiring movie with lessons to learn.
