    Anarchist Communist Group Day School 3rd November, 10.30 am to 5pm

    at May Day Rooms, London, 88 Fleet Street, London EC4
    Austerity and poverty, attacks on wages and working conditions, unaffordable housing, war and nationalism, the rise of right-wing populism and increase in racism, climate change- all things to make us feel that the situation is hopeless and that all we can do is make feeble efforts to resist. However, we believe, as Kropotkin says, that real change is possible and may come when it is most unexpected. So what can we do to bring this moment closer? We will discuss this question in the context of actual struggles going on in Britain today.

    Defend the NHS?: An anarchist communist perspective on health

    Organising to win?

    There are thousands of people in Britain committed to social change. They are involved in a multitude of groups and campaigns. However, despite this we seem to be continually on the defensive and very far from creating the kind of society we would like to see. This workshop will discuss why this is the case. Why aren’t we more effective? It will begin with a presentation on the importance of organisation and a discussion of what we think are the key characteristics of effective organisation. We will then look at a number of examples of different sorts of strategies in order to highlight some of the strengths and weaknesses of different approaches. We will also hear from at least one example of effective organisation.

    chilango Neither Westminster nor Brussels....

    Funnily enough I taught a history lesson* in a school the other day about the end of WWI. It was very basic stuff but I managed to include Wilhelmshaven and Kiel in my brief spiel.

    * I'm not a history teacher, nor a historian. I just get to do some fairly random things in my line of work.

    Hmm... well aside from London and Leicester, we've got groups and members in Devon, Essex, Glasgow, Norfolk, Peterborugh and Surrey. If any of those are close enough for you, let me know and I'll put you in touch.
