- As a contribution to the Save Vestas campaign, we are showing With Babies and Banners, a film about the 1936 struggle at General Motors factories in Flint, Michigan, whose victory curbed a vicious management, launched the unionisation of the US car industry and inspired millions of American workers to fight the effects of the Depression.
- The film focuses in particular on the role of women workers, strikers' families and wider community support in the victory.
- Followed by discussion, with plenty of time for questions and contributions.
