‘Do you not know how a picket line works?’ Mick Lynch asked the Sky News Reporter. Sometimes, we wonder if our Human Origins research colleagues understand how picket lines work. Because the picket line provides the most powerful model for the emergence of human solidarity, shared consciousness, rules and symbolism. But in the Pleistocene, with the origins of our species, who ‘downed tools?’ Who were the ‘workers’ and who were the ‘bosses’? How did they get organized? What did this picket line look like, and what is the evidence remaining today?
