Precarity Circus @ Joe Hill Celebration

Thanks to all who participated in our action and the Joe Hill celebration Friday night.  A shout out from Amy Goodman and rousing support from the audience made the evening a huge success!

On the occasion of Don’t Mourn, Organize! Performances in Celebration of Labor Troubadour Joe Hill (1879-1915) SENS-UAW organized a festive demonstration that used humor and play to highlight the precarious conditions of our work-study-lives at The New School.

Inspired by the Precarious Workers Pageant at the Venice Biennale (2015), SENS-UAW demonstrated the difficulty of life without a union. The Precarity Circus featured clowns struggling to keep all the balls in the air, unstable balancers, and inflexible contortionists.
