DVD - The GAMA Strike: A Victory For All Workers
In 2005, the Socialist Party uncovered a major scandal of migrant worker exploitation. "A modern form of bonded labour" was how Joe Higgins, Socialist Party TD described the regime for Turkish workers at the multinational construction company, GAMA, which came to Ireland following an invitation from the Irish government.
This DVD documentary captures the historic struggle waged by the GAMA workers for justice. It shines a light on the gross exploitation that is the dark side of Ireland's economic growth. It demonstrates that rather than migrant workers being used to undermine pay and conditions, with organisation, action and solidarity decent pay and conditions can be won for all workers.
A premiere has been organised for Thursday 27 July in Wynn's Hotel, Abbey Street in Dublin where the first ever public screening of this heroic story will take place. There will be short presentations by a GAMA striker and Joe Higgins TD.
Tickets for this upmarket black tie event can be purchased from myself, it costs â‚¬5 and if you are attending please let me know ahead of Thursday as numbers are limited.
