Chicago, The Great Teachers’ Strike @Bolton Octagon January 27th, FREE by Blackburn with Darwen
Bolton Trades Council presents this Banner Theatre production! 7.30pm. Book Free Tickets through the Octagon Box Office.
As battle lines are drawn across the United States between the corporate elite and the mass of the population, the Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) and their community allies joined together to fight for public sector education. Their demand was for an education that teaches children to think, create and challenge and not provide zombie labour for the profit machine.
Chicago tells the story of the CTU’s strike and explores their successful organising agenda that empowered their members and mobilised parents, students and the wider community. That agenda produced a strike vote of 98% on a 90% turnout, 9 days of mass pickets, creative sit-ins and demonstrations covering 840 schools across the city, and hundreds of thousands of vocal and active supporters.
In 2012 the CTU and their allies managed to stall the corporate onslaught and develop a fighting agenda demonstrating that another education system is possible. By weaving together music, song and inspirational video footage and interviews Chicago provides compelling lessons for both educational and broader public sector resistance here in the UK.Categories: Divisional News, Preston Posted: 14 Jan
