Helsinki Left Discussion Group: Workers’ rights and trade unions

Welcome to Helsinki Left's Discussion Group! 

The idea of this group is to learn and discuss topics together that are relevant to the Left, and to explore them from different perspectives, with a variety of options for reading (or listening to audiobooks) or watching. For each session, we will cover one theme, for which you can choose your preferred material to read or watch, as there will be several books, essays or films suggested on the list for that theme. 

We will hold bimonthly discussions in a laid-back atmosphere. 

This document is a work in progress. Feel free to suggest additional materials and themes to the list! To suggest any material or theme to this list, please do so by adding your suggestion as a comment.
