In the run up to pride season our gender and sexuality working group are holding their third open meeting to discuss these issues, their intersection with anarchism, and plan actions.
Thursday, 16 May 2019 from 19:00-21:00 at Freedom bookshop, 84b Whitechapel High Street, London E1 7QX
We’re participating in this year’s Anarchist Festival – there will be lots of excellent talks and workshops, a full list can be found here: anarchistfestival.wordpress.com
We will host and co-host:
Re: Attack at Publico, bookshop of the Anarchist Federation in Paris
An anarchist comrade was violently attacked with a knife the afternoon of 2nd May 2019 in the FA bookshop Publico (Paris).
There is nothing to suggest the attack was targetting him in particular, but rather the organisation he represents and to which he belongs : the Fédération Anarchiste.
We will not let ourselves be threatened, intimidated or assaulted with impunity. We will keep on struggling and spreading our political messages, which are without doubt disliked by some in these times of struggle.
We will continue the fight against this society and the violence it imposes on us.
Solidarity with our comrade, solidarity with Publico
Paris, 2nd of May 2019
We will be holding our second open meeting on Saturday 4th of May in Halkevi Turkish and Kurdish Cultural Centre in Dalston starting at 3pm.
The full address is: 31-33 Dalston Lane, E8 3DF
Come along if you want to find out more about how you can get involved with the Green Anti-Capitalist Front.
Going back to theory! Following up from last month’s reading group on Synthesis and Platformism, we’ll discuss Syndicalism on 21 May:
This will be the founding meeting of the Anarchist Federation gender and sexuality working group. This will be a space to discuss these topics from an anarchist perspective, plan specific events and actions around gender and sexuality, and discuss how anarchists should interact with the wider movement.
So, if you want to discuss or get involved in developing anarchist theory around gender and sexuality, come along! All genders welcome!
Wednesday 17th April, 7pm, Freedom Bookshop, 84b Whitechapel High Street, London E1 7QX
We are calling for a broad anti-capitalist front to take part in environmentalist actions starting on Monday 15th of April in London, outside St Paul’s Cathedral, meeting at 12 noon. We will be assembling at St Paul’s Cathedral for a tour of the heart of global extractive finance, also known as the City of London. We support the efforts by groups like Extinction Rebellion to build large movements, but we also support the many working class, immigrant, anti-borders, socialist, anarchist and communist groups which have been working to dismantle the capitalist roots of climate change, species extinction and extractive industrialism. Unlike Extinction Rebellion, we are not asking you to get arrested but we must highlight the fact that capitalism is the root cause of this crisis and bring this message to the workplaces of the people profiting from environmental destruction.
We’re having a meeting for people interested in getting involved in anarchist organising in London on 6th April 2019, 4-6pm at Freedom Bookshop, 84b Whitechapel High Street Whitechapel, E1 7QX.
Things we do: run a monthly anarchist reading group, run a film night, help publish Organise magazine, help publish and distro Rebel City newspaper, have socials, have fundraisers (remember that awesome gig we did in Jan with Inner terrestrials?), publish pamphlets, launch environmental initiatives (Green anticapitalist front), go on demos as a group.
Things we could do: anything your little anarchist heart desires!
