It's time to line up for the Midwest Wobfest, which will be hosted by the Twin Cities General Membership Branch between July 14 -16, 2006. IWWs from around the country will converge on Minneapolis and St. Paul for a weekend of music, history, and discussion around how we build community and solidarity in our union.
The festival schedule begins with a bonfire of discontent on Friday, July 14th with food, song, and soapboxing.
On Saturday the 15th, there will be discussion forums throughout the day on - Wobbly communication structure, industrial classification, regional organizing, dual card direct action, Solidarity Brigade or One Big Union? - to name a few. We're honored to have Brother Staughton Lynd with us for the keynote afternoon address on Saturday. A large revue will close out Saturday, with several musical acts, one comedian, and a slide presentation showcasing photographs and art of the IWW.
