News for contacts of the London Anarchist Federation
This coming Saturday October 28th the Anarchist Federation will be running three meetings at the London Anarchist Bookfair 10am to 7pm. Venue: Park View School, West Green Road, London, N15 3QR
The Cult of Corbyn
The nature of Corbynism and how we relate to it, and how we need to help bring to birth a mass grassroots movement that goes beyond electoral politics and poses a real threat to capitalism and the State with a vision of a new society based on equality and freedom. No to electoralism and yes to class struggle. We hope to debate with a supporter of Momentum at this meeting. Ground floor.
2pm – 3pm
Is the working class movement dead?
Since the 1980s there have been dramatic changes in the working class movement, with a marked decline in class consciousness, de-politicisation and a shift towards right-wing populism on the one hand and, more lately, the dead end of Corbynism on the other. This meeting will evaluate where we are as a class now, while looking at the role of pro-revolutionaries in the current climate. Room F5
3pm – 4pm
Welcome to the anarchist future
Ever wondered what it would be like to live in an anarchist society? How would they live, work, educate, and sustain themselves? Got any burning questions you wish to discuss? We are lucky to have some visitors from a future anarchist society, who will welcome you and explain how their world works. In sharing their experiences they hope to inspire each of us to think about how we envisage our future anarchist societies. We carry a new world in our hearts after all. Ground floor
