Crowdsourcing Campaign for the 2nd Networked Labour Event in Tunis, WSF, Global Square

This is an appeal for a individual and institutional cooperative funding and collaboration campaign to realize the 2nd International Networked Labour event, this time in Tunis, during the World Social Forum, in March 2015.

Draft open proposal for the 2nd event can be seen and modified here:https://titanpad.com/networkedlabour2ndencounterproposal

Project, content and program will be designed, managed and executed, based on open-participatory budgeting and p2p collaboration principles, and as part of broader Global Square initiative (http://www.global-square.net). In case you like to help us to get there financially please support the GNUnion campaign at Coopfunding.net: https://www.coopfunding.net/en/campaigns/global-networked-labour-union/

Besided we welcome all kinds of technical, logistical, creativity, design, physical labour and knowledge based contributions, especially from interested creative communites and cooperatives and their members from around the world.

The estimated budget, as well as the participatory tools and mechanisms that can be used to follow and join the event from a distance will be published here, during the second part of February 2015: http://www.networkedlabour.net/

– Using a simple system based on combining evil google’s evil tools like google+, your tube, and hang out on air we had tested the live stream on Wednesday by broadcasting the Blockupy action took place in Frankfurt for the actual and virtual visitors of the Occupied university of Amsterdam:  http://blog.p2pfoundation.net/in-solidarity-with-blockupy/2015/03/18

Today evening LSE and UvA occupations met via Skype and had a very inspiring exchange, where David Greaber was present at the London side of the brief semi-assembly we did together. I did post the short video on the net. Here is the youtube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2QBRx9j8wGE

Discussion goes on the ideas around ‘how to build a global student movement’ as well as transnational strikes, together to emancipate knowledge and labour. We did decide to meet and exchange more other, virtually and actually, and forge the int. student movement spreading since especially after the crisis, aligning with workers and others.

Whose profit? Reply to Schram on rendementsdenken – ReThink UvA

By Enzo Rossi (Political Science) & Dan Hassler-Forest (English)

In Friday’s issue of De Volkskrant, Arthur Schram argues that all is well with the managerial university. Colleagues and students in the Maagdenhuis should just abandon their left-wing romanticism and get down to churning out the next batch of degrees, papers, or whatever they are told to produce. So let’s take a closer look at his arguments, of which we can discern two: (i) rendementsdenken mandates whatever restructuring it requires, and (ii) professional managers are the best judges of that.

The first argument trades on the ambiguity of the term rendementsdenken. The term is stretched over a continuum that runs from “balancing your books” to “maximizing your profits”. Hardly anyone disagrees with the former, and hardly anyone who works or studies at a university thinks that it should be run like a corporation, to enrich shareholders or management. In fact, hardly anyone thinks that way about any other kind of public service—such as health care and judiciary workers, for instance.
