  1. Great stuff! We are preparing to get together some hacktivists, indignados and labour people as well as people all three of these at the same time to discuss very similar issues in, around, and beyond the LabourStart’s Global Solidarity conference in Berlin between 22-24 May, which is right after the ITUC congress take place there. So there will surely be interesting bunch of networkers. Would be nice to have a chance to report back for Cyberunion audience 🙂
