GNUnion aims at
1. Creating one big mesh network for the working people from the Global South and Global North by linking autonomous networks and communities of high-tech/knowledge, industrial and service workers; domestic, immigrant, rural, jobless and future workers; solidarity, activism and research networks; labour, environmental, social justice and information freedom activists,
2. Hyper- and self-empowerment of the individual nodes and networks involved,
3. Emancipation of human labour, creativity and potential from current dominant system based on waged slavery by mesh networking existing and working alternatives and building new ones,
4. Combining labour, digital, creative and media activism to confront system with transnationally meshed, systemic and strategic mass actions,
The network of the projects we design and develop focuses on self-organizing and connecting like-minded peers and their network bases to each other strategically and synergetically. To this end we build dynamic, free, libre, and open access spaces and tools through which our collective agendas, struggles, and energies can entangle with each other, and we can act upon them harmonically. Variety of projects listed below invites like minded peers to use the individual social and communicational power they have and collaborate around dynamic, creative and positive projects empowering them. By combining peer to peer social dynamics and technologies, and embedding them into our internal and external processes and relations we ultimately target global emancipation of labour and the commons from the capital, by empowering all the single nodes joining in collaborating creation of a commons humanity.
Below are the core projects we are currently occupied with. We have been developing those based on totally free and peer to peer contributions, cooperation and mutual aid. This allowed us to be able to stay autonomous and independant from any state or private entity, its financially and ideological influece. In order to support and empower each other we have used the spaces created by organisations like P2P Foundation, Union Solidarity International (the Organizing Network – ON), and collaborating with comrade projects Says-Us, LabourLeaks, Cyberunions, May First/People Link, and others free of charge. Most recently GNUnion became affiliated to the Fair.coop, the first global people's owned cooperative. The only exception of finacial and material support we recieved, was a small fund we used to realise the organisation of the first Networked Labour Seminar. This fund came from the Transform europe! and Transnational Institute.
