Labor in the Era of "Free Trade": A View from the South

a talk by Carlos Vilas

Wednesday, April 10 at 8 pm

Cutbacks, "restructuring," the impact of new
technologies, the weakening of labor movements and other
features of "globalization" are even more deeply felt in
the southern hemisphere than here in the North. Vilas
will examine the relationship of "globalization" to
"imperialism" and look at the varied responses of Latin
American labor movements--with an emphasis on the more
active labor strategies of the Southern Cone.

Carlos Vilas, a professor at the National Autonomous
University of Mexico, is the author of _Between
Earthquakes and Volcanoes: Market, State, and the
Revolutions in Central America_.

Admission is $6.
