Wednesday 6th September 2017:. Interrogating Digital Capitalism #2: Digital Technology as Heavy Industrial Technology: Slavery, Conflict and Environmental Destruction. Digital technology is often seen as ‘immaterial’ and ‘smart’, defining a new industrial and social paradigm. Yet digital gadgets are produced within an ‘old-fashioned’ highly exploitative regime – conditions in Chinese electronics factories, such as Foxconn, were brought to international attention by a wave of worker suicides in 2010. The industry creates massive environmental destruction, make a major contribution to climate change and helps generate violence and conflict in Africa. Speakers: Jack Linchuan Qiu author of Goodbye iSlave, will describe the campaign for workers’ rights at Foxconn and other Chinese electronics factories. Nina Isabella Moeller will discuss the environmental impact of digital technologies. Free/donation. 7.15pm, Feminist Library meeting room, 5 Westminster Bridge Road, London SE1 7XW. Venue is accessible, we would advise wheelchair users to contact us in advance if possible. For more information/booking contact email@example.com. There will also be an opportunity for trade unionists, and others interested in discussing a possible solidarity campaign with Chinese electronics workers, to meet Jack Linchuan Qiu at 4pm on September 6, at the Feminist Library. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested.
