Oxford anarchists?

Can anyone help out? I haven't been able to find any anarchists since I got here, most student politics seems to centre on things like the Marxist Forum and the SA. Any info on contacts in the university or the city itself would be much appreciated.

Yup there's them, though they're mostly not anarchists. Corporate Watch are also based there, and I'll PM someone I know to see if they wanna get in touch smile

Mystic,

If you're still searching, feel free to get in touch. I'm involved with OSAN...john is right to say that we're not all anarchists (I'm not) but we do operate non-hierarchically, and adhere to the Peoples Global Action hallmarks. There are also a bunch of affinity groups in the town, tho, again, there are no solely anarchist groups. We're all nice and ecumenical in Oxford. smile

MattS, I've got a libertarian communist friend moving to Oxford from Aotearoa New Zealand who would be keen too if you can flick me your details.

simono, MattS was writing 8 years ago...

I am partly based in oxford, and there's quite a few anarchists there. The only active group tho is Thames Valley Solidarity Federation - get your friend when they move to contact us on the website: http://www.solfed.org.uk/?q=local/thamesvalley or to PM me or, better co's he actually active, Auto.

Marky1, I imagine a lot of people in Oxford are anti-monarchists! If you want any explicitly libertarian socialist or anarcho-syndicalist anti-monarchists then get in touch with me or Auto, or contact Thames Valley SolFed.

(Just in case people haven't noticed, this thread is from 2004 - I don't know if all the groups mentioned above are still active.)

Well there are a number of Anarchists up here and I'd assume we're all implicitly anti-monar
chist. grin If you mean actual Republican campaigners I assume there'd be some up round here.

In terms of current Anarchist groups in Oxford, there's Thames Valley SolFed which is probably the most active. There was also the more informal 'anarchists in oxford' grouping which seems sadly defunct now. Still, they do have an occasionally used email list.

Apart from that, there are various libertarian, non-hierarchical groups in Oxford. Take a look round and there'll be something for you. smile
