Autism

Autistic people face discrimination and prejudice in a society which expects us to understand and fit in with social rules that are not of our making. People with autism are also part of the disabled people's fightback. This section includes my work providing 'Autism in the workplace' training and information for trade union representatives, plus campaign news, and personal and political observations.

Soft skills are hard.

Marxism and Autism: there is a spectrum haunting Europe

09/07/2016 - 18:30

As part of Workers' Liberty's annual Ideas For Freedom event, Janine and Dr Dinah Murray will introduce a discussion on Marxism and autism.

How can Marxism explain the autistic experience in modern capitalism? What is the political economy of the neurodiverse working class? How are autistic people exploited and oppressed?

Venue: Student Central, Malet Street, London.
