Myth of Community: The Challenges of Organising Locally

'Save the community', 'Support from the community', 'The community thinks', 'Community Land Trust' are just a few of the references to 'community' that we us when are involved in a range of struggles such as housing, saving a library or getting access to land. However, to what extent does this 'community' exist? In this meeting, drawing on many practical examples of organising, we will discuss problems such as the impact of capitalism and divisions within localities. We will then hope to discuss how we can create genuine community based on working class struggles.

As part of Antiuniversity events:

Vision of a society without government
Is organised human life possible without a state?
How would it be better than the situation we have now?
Why have so many people and movements fought for a world without government?

This session will explore the history of radical anti-statist movements and look at the potential these movements and ideas have in our society today.

Rebellion in Patagonia

workers in Patagonia, influenced by anarchist ideas, demand improvements in pay and conditions. After employers at first agree to workers' demands, which are supported by workers in other sectors and areas, the regional governor, under pressure from local employers, orders the paramilitary police to intervene to crush the movement. In response a general strike is declared, paralysing the ports and wool production for export. The government backs w the landowners, and soldiers are brought in to crush the strike.This dramatised account of the events directed in 1974 by Hector Olivera was banned by the Videla dictatorship in Argentina.
An important part of the history of the internatinoal anarchist movement. Come and be inspired!

Any chance the 'Myth of Community' could be audio recorded? Maybe worthy of a follow-up article.
