Houston IWW says
The Houston IWW is a class-oriented labor union in Houston. In October we'll be hosting David Michael Smith to tell his story about his years of experience being the president of the Faculty Union at the College of the Mainland (COM), his termination from COM, and his subsequent legal victory against the university. David MIchael Smith was a labor organizer at COM, and an openly Marxist professor who was targetted for his political opinions.
