Jeff Shantz on Green Syndicalism

Categories:
program date: 
Mon, 04/22/2013

Joe Clement talks with Jeff Shantz about his book, Green Syndicalism: An Alternative Red / Green Vision. They discuss Shantz's history working for Greenpeace as the organization shifted from direct action to canvassing and lobbying, and the connections he made as an exploited canvasser with exploited workers in industries exploiting the natural world. The book draws on the theoretical work of Ernesto Laclau and Chantal Mouffe, but offers practical considerations of the needs of activist organizers to make connections across groups, and to integrate activism into daily life and workplaces. Part Two of the discussion (not broadcast) will be available soon.
