Congress ’09 begins

leave a comment »

A warm welcome to Congress 09, which meets in Liverpool this week. You can follow Congress this year by means of a specific website, featuring photos, comment, a widepread use of social media and online discussions with the specific purpose, in this year of recession, of spreading Congress away from the Convention Centre to allow those not directly involved a better picture of it.

You can track Congress directly here.

Incidentally, the US confederation the AFL-CIO is also meeting this week, in Pittsburgh, and you similarly track its progress here.
