The 10th Joseph Mairs Memorial was held on January 22, 2012.
The Joseph Mairs Memorial Committee founder and chair, Alastair Haythornthwaite spoke to ‘Our Common Condition’, both with the striking miners of 1913 and with workers across the nation.
Our keynote speaker was Dr. Ingo Schmidt who spoke to “The Class Language of Economics”. Drawing on his personal experience as the son of working class parents growing up in Germany, Dr. Schmidt exploered how class distiction is both denied and recogonised by all in society.
