    Hi everyone,

    Can someone point me to an article that covers most of what the IWCA got up to in the 90s-2000s? I am writing an article that looks at different types of workplace and community organising tactics and would like to mention some of what the IWCA did in it. Since I know lots of IWCA posters posted here in the past, I thought it would be a good place to ask... hope they still do, I've only looked at these boards very infrequently in the last few years.

    that was very good actually. :D

    I do find it odd that soo many anarchists have a semi for the IWCA whilst having nothing but hate for the Socialist Party, probably the sad tendency for anarchists to fall for any old shit if it claims to be grass roots and beyond politics etc

    My defending him has about as much effect as your denouncing him.

    I'm under no illusions about what either of us says effecting the situation in Venezuela, on here it's more a matter of intellectual rigour and honesty.

    And if it matter nowt why do you say it like it does?

    I think things like the IWCA Athletics club, the youth athletics pilot scheme and the work done in Oxford to open up sports facilities of oxford university to working class kids in Oxford show that this is not the case

    As I said, the sites haven't been updated for a while hence the 'were'. Stuff about what we've been up to since then will be added soon.

    thanks oisleep, Sue and yield. I will take a look, and force myself to write the article in the next couple of weeks. It will start by looking at solidarity networks and then examine other types of workplace and community organising that differ interestingly from the usual union/party model.

    888 - not sure if it's the type of thing you were looking for but there's a bit of information about what's been going on in Oxford on a new site here

    www.iwca-athletics.org

    Also gives us brief summary of the IWCA in Oxford, past present & future

    Are you suggesting I shouldn't comment on things that happen outside the immediate area I live in?

    If you read the post I was responding to you will see it was a reply to someone who suggested things had stopped in Oxford/BBL - therefore the reply focussed on what was happening in Oxford/BBL

    Well you (the IWCA) don't have a policy on Palestine do you? Ah fuck this, we can rant over a pint some time.
