About SNU

Social Network Unionism Project is not only about theorising the recent developments in  P2P technology, the phenomenon called Web 2.0, and conceptualising the transformatory impact of these technical developments on unions at national and international levels, and labour movement in general.

Besides defining the concept of SNU, by looking closely to the existing practices within and without established unions and labour organisations, the project also aims at promoting a new type of working class organisation that takes online and real world social, peer to peer networking principles into the core of its exisitance.

The idea is based on the premise that the developement in the mentioned communication and media technology since 2004 onwards, has created new organisational capacities for networks as well as new networking capacities for organisations. There are already astonishing experiements taking place towards future promising syntheses from whose succeses and failures we can learn and upon them we can build new models; not only to grow in numbers and fight back stronger, but also to form wider alliances and start building new social, economic and political norms and cultures bottom up.

Based on these insights the objective of this blog is to explore further on the potential of such ‘Social Network Unionism’ in terms of reaching out the unorganisible, activating organised rank and file, making direct democracy a reality, and bridging as much transformatory social forces as possible.

We hope that such concept and effort would contribute to the global process of union revitalization and may be further to the general emancipation of labour from ‘work’, meaning to be passive object of greed for private profit and power.

  1. Please redesign the header for your website. I totally support what you advocate but when it comes to forwarding links to your website I shrink back, the forms and the colours are so unpleasant. Sorry I am not a designer so can’t offer to help, but there are many do-it-yourself versions available on the net. Just make a simple title, no need for clever designs.
    Thanks

  2. Att: All Recipients,

    If you are ‘free-mind-enabled’ (or not), don’t wait for Dec. 21, take powerful action now!

    Best regards to All,

    Here is an unconditional free gift from
    The Archives of Universal Knowledge:
    ..ELIXIR OF TRUE WORLDLY-SELF,……..
    Awakening THE TRUE SELF involves a simple metaphysical
    self-administered natural healing application,…….

    “With the unconditional truth of universal
    consciousness, I have released my whole self
    from the Powers of Ego-Belief Mind Control.
    My mind is now enabled to be true and whole. ”

    HOW TO USE THIS POWERFUL ELIXIR OF LIFE
    (ISOLATING NEGATIVE CAUSE AND EFFECT)
    Procedure (ACTION/EFFORT): Upon awakening each morning for a period of not less than thirty-one days, mentally consume the natural universal affirmation three times or more until a strong addiction occurs. This is exactly the same universal process used by population-control corporations. The only difference is that ‘consumer–gains’ include instant access to happiness and unconditional mind-freedom. (The more truth you use, the more of everything you get back!)
    WARNING ! Your system-controlled Ego-Belief-Self will not want you to consume this powerful elixir of life and will use various implanted programs to prevent you from claiming your personal mind-freedom.
    This complimentary ‘Freedom-Addiction Program’ is now yours and includes Nature’s guarantee of success without any negative side effects! You can safely use it to release yourself from harmful Corporate-controlled consumer-consequences.
    Every citizen can now declare their true intentions to themselves and activate personal reform. This is how Nature’s Truth of emotional-based reality has been designed to set everyone free during the current mind-shift process. So, finally we get to create how we want to live as individuals, not as mobs of hypnotized ‘sheeple’ or mind-toxic zombies unknowingly supporting exclusive Global Powers, but as awakened conscious ‘Beings’ preparing for life after Corporate Time-Control…………
    While individual/collective Ego is under the control of corporations, it will continue to devour anything it can. That is not what Humanity has suffered so long for? Ask yourself for a good reason not to consume and share the ‘TROJAN HORSE’ file-format called ‘EGO++ENTHUSIASM’. It contains the universal key to enable everyone to suit their own lives with exactly what they truly want.
