Please join our friends and us for a 5-week reading/film series on Chinese class struggle. We are organizing this collective study group leading up to a talk in mid May by a member of the gongchao collective, who has conducted interviews and oral histories with workers at the Apple subcontracted factory, Foxconn.
Every Saturday at 3 PM at the Wildcat on 23rd & Spring
This schedule is subject to change based on participants’ preference.
