Hi all,

I signed up about two years ago and don't think I've been back since....

I'm currently working on the anarchism.org.nz site which is a bit on a lonely existance check out anarchism.org.nz/forums which is pretty much where it's at, at the moment.

I'm guessing this site is using drupal as it's cms? If so it's gotta be the first I've seen to make drupal look really good

yep drupal. though i can't take any of the credit for it looking good tongue

the forums are still missing some of the standard functionality of phpbb though (working jump-to-last-post being the obvious one).

Yeah even though the forums are far more functional than the standard or inproved drupal forum modules

Yeah an ability to mark all posts as read would be cool or am I missing something?

yeah that's another one on the list - drupal's pretty new to all of us and for the moment at least only a couple of us know any php (not me), so we're pretty much making it up as we go along grin

Is there a list of stuff somewhere that you are working on? I know there's a few people here that have some drupal, mysql/php skills that might be able to give you some pointers

Hi Yuda, any help you're able to offer would be great!

There's a long list of stuff we're working on, but not anywhere in one place. I'll try to write something up later on - would be good to have an overall todo anyway.

Hi Yuda,

I've started a todo which will hopefully give you an idea of what we're working on at the moment: http://libcom.org/forums/feedback-and-content/libcom-todo

any ideas would be great!

I probably can't help out too much myself, I've got enough projects on the go as it is, but I know there are a few people who do check out these forums with good skills

cool. No worries if you (or anyone else) can't. What's more useful than anything is having people to bounce ideas off.

no, she's some kind of labour party supporter or something.... i don't know lefty liberal or something. she acknowledges the centrality of the class struggle tho, which is better than alot of "anarchists". i shall introduce her to the joys of anarcho-syndicalism when we stop moving around...

Hi Im new to anarchism,and this forum. *waves*

With respect to the quote below : do we have things 'too easy',(so building support for consumers to ignore anarchists as "bomb throwing trouble makers" )compared to the countries being raped by the western world where injustices are obvious?

Mike.E

Totally agree with this from anarchy.org.au

Quote:
1) Introductory note

A common experience, particularly for young people who come to anarchism from the English-speaking world, is one of isolation.
In my own case I came to anarchism through reading Homage to Catalonia and then the (very few) anarchist books I could obtain in my city. These were nearly all liberal academic histories or reprints of texts from the nineteenthth century, so for quite a while I was completely unaware that a contemporary anarchist movement even existed. It took me a year to find other individual anarchists, and a further year to discover there was actually a small anarchist group in my city. Another year passed before I took part in the formation of an organisation, but as we were very inexperienced, we ended up joining with a much older anarchist group. It was only then that we became able to undertake effective activity. I’ve written this text (with the help of others) in a way that I think would have enabled me and our initial small group to become effective much, much faster.

Hey guys I've started posting again. I used to post more then a year ago, but have found myself back to this site after hearing about the Anti-Deustche Antifa.

Im currently a Uni student studying in Queensland.
I used to identify with communism/anarchism/socialism but now just identify myself as a pro-Australian Greens progressive liberal. I have a particular distaste for extremism, and follow the saying 'there is no left or right when you are an extremist'. My politics are more shaped around finding justice for all people, in every situation. I have particular interest in the search for peace in Israel/Palestine after reading some of Norman Finkelstein books and Antony Loewenstein's blog.

I dont support the organisation Fight Dem Back but do not condemn them, I feel as though the organisation is more about publicity for its original members then it is for actually concentrating on fighting racism. I'll leave it at that, because any organisation that fights racism cannot be condemned.

I hope by posting here I can continue discussions on progressive liberal politics.

Hey casey, welcome smile

There haven't been that many Aussies posting on here lately but hopefully there's still a bunch reading who will reply to you soon (I'm from the other side of the Tasman).

Whereabouts are you in Australia? There are anarchists in most centres, although the most are in Melbourne and Sydney (probably unsurprisingly!) There are a couple of anarchist-communist groups if you lean that way - the Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group and the Sydney Anarchist Communist Tendency who would be worth getting in touch with if you are in either of those cities.

Hi Asher smile

Thanks for the welcome... I live in rural NSW but travel a fair bit to Adelaide due to the family situation so interested in anything either here or in SA.

And also thanks for some of the advice, the Anarchist-Communism group sounds intriguing, I must do some more reading into this as I am still feel I am very new to this but I am glad to finally meet some like minded people/sites, the only thing people seem to care about out here is the rain or their livestock...

byebye for now smile
