"What's Wrong With Using Parliament?". (Housmans Bookshop, London)

Official launch of The Socialist Party's latest publication:

"What's Wrong With Using Parliament?",

http://www.worldsocialism.org/spgb/20C/Parliament_update.html

with an introduction by Stair.

Saturday 20th November 5pm

Housman's Bookshop
5 Caledonian Road
Kings Cross
London
N1 9DX

All welcome. Free entry. Free discussion.

"Stair has had a long interest and involvement with what he may have described at one time as "anti-authoritarian politics".

Housmans was one of the destinations he had on his agenda pre-internet on numerous trips to London when further exploring these ideas.

His employment meant he did his "time" in the "retail and service sector" and will talk about his experience of the attitudes and positions of his fellow workers and how some of these observations tie into the question of "how we get from here to there", a classless, wageless, moneyless, stateless society.

This pamphlet comes at a time when many people are questioning the destructive effects of capitalism and also with it a rejection of leaders and the traditional left. This is something that can be encouraged. The aim of the pamphlet is to show that there is another view of social change that may be a "blind spot" with those who get involved with "anti-capitalist", "activist" or/and "anarchist" politics".

Was this intentionally posted on the eve of the 405th anniversary of the moment the only guy who entered Parliament with honourable intentions tried to show Londoners the best way of using the building - potentially as a way of keeping warm during this usually cold time of the year?

Me? Do a thing like that? Never.

Are you saying that we should have entitled it "What's Wrong with Fusing Parliament?"?
