How to make sense of these mushrooming mass protests-cum-rebellions which have no clear class character, owe their lightening speed of organisation largely to the rallying capacity of social media, which have few distinct or established leaders and whose often contradictory demands are constantly changing and are now emulating each other?

Tribute to Ernesto Leal, a founder of the London migrant cleaners' movement

Tribute written by members of the Latin American Workers' Association (LAWAS) in 2009 after the death of Ernesto Leal (11 January 1938 - 22 October 2009), Chilean communist exile who eventually moved to London, working as a cleaner and founding LAWAS. In the same days of Leal's death, Unite the union purged LAWAS, leading cleaners to join the IWW and eventually founding IWGB and UVW, which continue to organise cleaners and other low-wage migrant workers in London's service sector. We republish it here from The Commune (now defunct) in light of the recent historic victories of migrant cleaners at LSE and SOAS.
