Workers in the Global South are doomed through economic imperialism to carry the burden of the entire world. While these workers appear isolated from the Global North, they are in fact deeply integrated into global commodity chains and essential to the maintenance of global capitalism.Looking at contemporary case studies in India, the Philippines and South Africa, this book affirms the significance of political and economic representation and the struggle of these workers against the deepening levels of poverty and inequality that oppress the majority of people on the planet.In Organizing Insurgency, Immanuel Ness shows that workers are eager to mobilise to improve their conditions, and can achieve lasting gains if they have sustenance and support from political organisations. From the Dickensian industrial zones of Delhi to the oligarchic oppression of agrarian workers on the island of Mindanao, a common element remains – when workers organise they move closer to the formation of socialism, solidarity and equality.
