To everyone else: Welcome!!
May First/People Link is a politically progressive member-run and controlled organization that redefines the concept of "Internet Service Provider" in a collective and collaborative way. May First/People Link's members are organizers and activists. Like any democratic membership organization, we gather together each year to evaluate the past year's experiences, plan the coming year's work and elect a Leadership Committee to apply what we've decided. Like a coop, we pay dues, buy equipment and then we all use that equipment as we need to for websites, email, email lists, and just about everything else we do on the Internet. Learn more about us, our politics, membership, or read some of our member profiles below. If you like what you see, please join us.

Their bed, their chair, their blanket--
that’s what they...

The morning workshop portion on the first day of the gathering was over, and the afternoon plenary was the first time that many of the attendees had come together in the same room. Some were weary from driving halfway across the country to get to Cleveland. Some were distracted by the scarcity of conference housing. The workshop offerings, totaling almost 100, left others unclear about how to navigate this overwhelming weekend.

CSAAWU represented farm workers in the Western Cape agricultural strikes in 2012/13. Most of these strikes for increased wages were unprotected and many workers lost their jobs.
The union fought and lost two dismissal cases in 2014 in the Labour Court, one against Steytler Boerdery and a second against La Maison.

CSAAWU applied to the...
