Dave Smith on Blacklisted

Wednesday, 20th May, 2015    
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Five Leaves Bookshop*
14a Long Row, Nottingham, NG1 2DH

Dave Smith will be talking about his new book, Blacklisted (New Internationalist), which he co-authored with investigative journalist Phillip Chamberlain. Blacklisted brings together the controversial story of the illegal strategies that multinational construction companies were willing to resort to in their attempt to keep union activists away from their places of work. This is a story where spying and collusion with the police and security services resulted in victimisation, violence and long-term unemployment which ultimately lead to the destruction of families and communities. 

Dave Smith is a blacklisted union activist from the construction industry, and award winning campaigner on human rights, health & safety, anti-fascism and employment rights issues. He currently works as a trade union education tutor.
