You're probably aware of the very harsh and exploitative conditions in Chinese electronics factories. This came to world attention in 2010 when there was a wave of workers' suicides at the Foxcon factory, which produces Apple's iPads and iPhones. Although the company has made some slight improvements in conditions, its main response was to introduce large numbers of robots.
Jack Linchuan Qiu, whose book 'Goodbye iSlave' documents working conditions and workers' attempts to organise in Chinese electronics factories will be in London on Septemeber 6th 2017, and Breaking the Frame is organising a meeting with trade unionists to inform and build solidarity with Chinese workers. You are invited to attend/send a delegate to the meeting, which will be aton at the Feminist Library meeting room, 5A Westminster Bridge Road, London, SE1 7XW.
If you are able to attend, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Please help us publicise this event by forwarding this email to your colleagues.
Mr Qiu will also be speaking at a public evening meeting organised by Breaking the Frame (http://breakingtheframe.org.

Again, please forward this information to colleagues and other interested parties.
