[Excerpt] Depression level unemployment has given rise to the biggest upsurge in organizing activity amongst the unemployed since the 1930's. While the level of the current movement is clearly not the same as during those times, a broad and rich range of experience has been gained over the last few years by the dozens of unemployed groups that have sprung up around the country. Recently, many of these groups met together in Erie, Pennsylvania, for the first conference of the newly formed National Unemployed Network.
