Lucien van der Walt on Workers' Education and Trade Unions

Lucien van der Walt. 2016. Why Workers’ Education? Why trade unions and what’s next?, South African Labour Bulletin, 40 (5): 46-48.
Abstract: In these grim times, both globally and locally, it is important to reaffirm the centrality of workers’ education, and the need for a strong working-class movement. Ordinary people have immense potential to change the world, and steer it in a more progressive direction than that promised by capitalists, populists and the political establishment.
