Globalization, Labour and Resistance in Sudbury

Edited by David Leadbeater  

Mining Town Crisis; Globalization, Labour and Resistance in Sudbury. Many people who have heard about class struggle in mining towns assume that it all happened long ago and far away. Here academics, workers, and activists show how little has changed. They focus on Sudbury, Ontario<–>the largest hardrock mining center in North America, and one of the world’s richest nickel reserves<–>since globalization came to town during the 1970s. Their topics include strike-breaking and the corporate agenda at </The Sudbury Star />; environmental impacts of nickel mining in four case studies, three continents, and two centuries; hunger and food insecurity in Greater Sudbury; French Ontario; progressive art and culture; lessons from the Little Blue Schoolhouse; and the rise and decline of Local 6500 United Steelworkers of America.
