lol, just typing what it says on the leaflet, so i am not going to defend the wording wink

I would have written that A-S is the largest anarchist current with relevancy in todays struggles or some BS like that.

Anyways, the content is the same! And i will be doing half of the talk i was just told grin

Sorry.

well, this is no joke for us in the WSA since SolFed did vote to expel us from the IWA.

well, before this starts getting into any kind of general IWA discussion yet again, let me just say that the talk is delivered by one of the old school solfedders and me, so we are going to hear a varied and diverse take on the subject.

and folk who know me i rarely shut up about the SAC, so better get a bullet proof vest wink

Anyways, the focus of the talk is on the politics of anarcho-syndicalism and the relevance today.

Ok, don't want to ruin the announcement.

If folks want to carry this forward, perhaps we can do so here: http://libcom.org/forums/international/iwa-congress

thanks syndicalist!

Bumping this up again so folks can put this awesome event in their calendar wink

Hope to see some AF comrades there as well to increase mutual understanding of eachothers politics.

The plan is to have this in a round table discussion format with two short talks first and enough time for questions and discussion. And probably a trip to the nearby pub afterwards for most.

There will be someone directing people to the new venue at The Basement.

please let anyone know who might be coming.

Sorry folks. I'm completely knackered after the trip to Dublin at the weekend. It's not very likely I'll be along.

Thanks to SolFed for last night's meeting and their two informative and witty speakers.

However, many of the questions - more accurately: statements - required of the listener a high level of competence in discriminating between revisionist, official, sectarian and mythical interpretations of history.

And I still want to know what place is there for the power of oration and persuasion within the principles of mandated and instantly recallable delegates?

Nonetheless, an enjoyable evening. Many thanks.

Thanks Peter!

As a quick report, 16 people attended, mostly anarchists from SolFed, AF, NAN or unaffiliated and couple comrades from ICC and Permanent Revolution.

This format was a new experience to me, with comments and contributions from folk lasting often as long as the speakers contribution and went into such high fly detail and mostly refered back to historical events - and then quick response from us speakers in the end and that was it. The informal discussions afterwards seemed to be quite intense and good as well when people went into smaller groups and continued talking about everything under the sun.

I am not good with anarchist theory, nor history so i do feel out of place in this kind of discussions. If one day we could have an anarcho-syndicalist discussion which stuck to the relevance today that would be great wink
