Some AngryWorkers will be round and about England in the next few weeks showing a brand new documentary about the logistics workers’ struggles/movement in Italy. Called ‘Ditching The Fear’, this film portrays the struggle of mainly migrant workers against the harsh labour regime of companies like TNT or IKEA. These struggles emerged in 2008 and have since then, not only won better conditions, but also put workers’ self-organisation back on the wider political agenda. Workers’ militants of the rank-and-file union SI Cobas talk about blockades of logistic hubs and their alliances with activists from the social centres.

There is now also a trailer available:

We’ll also have a discussion afterwards about how these struggles could be a point of reference over here. Hope to see you there!
