Newcastle/Tyneside Anarchist Group

Anyone in Newcastle or the Tyneside area (or indeed Sunderland etc) interested in joining a class struggle anarchist/libertarian communist group pm me or email newcastleanarchistgroup**@gmail.com (delete the little asterisk things), meetings are currently underway to discuss working together.

Why do folk always stick Sunderland on as an appendage or some kind of after thought? Why is it that even revolutionaries even see Sunderland as playing second fiddle to Newcastle? Sunderland is actually a larger city population wise.

Back in the late 70's early 80's our group encompassed the whole region and went under the name of Tyne & Wear Anarchist Group (TWAG); we also had a Tyne & Wear DAM. TWAG had around 6 regular activists in Sunderland, a similar number in Gateshead, the same in Newcastle and a member out in Blyth. TWAG would also regularly link up with comrades in Middlesbrough and Darlington.

It's the Newcastle inferiority complex innit. Like the Russian proverb, the empty barrel rattles loudest laugh out loud

Because in this case we're all based in Newcastle at the moment, however people in the other areas I mentioned are welcome to get involved until we can help them set their own group up.

Local Afed and Solfed members are already involved in the conversations, as are ex TWAG people.

Aha! Then perhaps I can entice you with a Solidarity Federation talk being held in Newcastle on Saturday 10th September?

Check out solfedtour2011@gmail.com and this will redirect you to the site we set up for it.

Come along - it'd be great to build links with other anarchists in the North East! red n black star

Heads up folks,

I Want to point people towards a new anarchist initiative launching in Tyneside.

Made up of SolFed, AFed, IWW and other non-aligned class-struggle anarchists. We aim to focus on local community and workplace issues that are both relevant to people's lives and winnable.

http://www.tynesidesolidaritygroup.org.uk

The site will hopefully explain where we are coming from and what we want to achieve. With more in depth articles to appear over the coming weeks. Any interested parties please contact us via the website. We look forward to hearing from you.

On behalf of Tyneside Solidarity Group.
