Paul Mason at the Left Forum 2011 Opening Plenary

You might know him as the ‘mainstream’ public service journalist from Newsnight, but Mason, author Meltdown, also calls himself a Labour Historian. He wrote Live Working or Die Fighting: How The Working Class Went Global , and in this talk, informed by his work at the coalface of 24 hour news, he talks about the new global movements, the changing nature of work, the radicalisation of the intelligencia as future opporunties evaporate, and increasing pressure on the working class, the changes going on in North Africa. Very good talk, well worth watching it all.
