Fan Shigang and Wen Li are the authors of “Striking to Survive: Workers’ Resistance to Factory
Relocations in China”. Their talk is co-sponsored by the Arrighi Center for Global Studies and East Asian Studies.

Blurb from publisher: The struggles of workers in China’s industrial centers are shaping the future of labor and democracy not only in China but throughout the world. Chinese worker-activists Fan Shigang and Li Wen will provide a unique, on-the-ground perspective on the most recent wave of militancy among China’s enormous working class.
