    Ideas and Struggles: Anarchism Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
    Anarchism today is part of a long tradition of thought and struggle. This discussion meeting, presented by Brian Morris, will show how many of the ideas of past anarchists, such as Bakunin and Kropotkin, are still relevant today. The reason for this is that their ideas emerged from actual struggles of the working class. However, this does not mean that we should treat these ideas as religious doctrine. They were very much products of their time and issues such as the oppression of women were not at the forefront of their thinking. Though many of the fundamental conditions are still the same, like capitalism and the State, there have been many changes and new struggles which have become relevant. Therefore we need to look for new ideas. But where do we look? The corridors of universities or people involved in struggles? Brian will focus on environmentalism as one of the important new struggles.
    Brian Morris is the the author of books on Bakunin , Kropotkin, Ecology and Anarchism,.
    Convened by London Anarchist Communist Group
    7pm, Thursday, April 19th at May Day Rooms, 88 Fleet Street, London EC4 1DH
