It seems there is an ever growing interest in the ideas of Anarchists and as such it has been suggested that it would be a good idea to have a regular discussion group. This would be a place where we could ask questions of one another as well as exploring the key concepts and proposals of anarchism.
The first discussion group meeting will be this Sunday 29/03/09 at 4 p.m. in the Henglers Circus (Wetherspoons) on Sauchiehall Street. There will be a red and black flag hanging off the table, subtle like, so look out for that.
Following the model of similar groups it is suggested that we meet monthly and in the fortnight before agree a topic for discussion in order to give folk the time to do any reading on the subject.
This Sunday it was felt we should have a general talk about anarchism/anarchist-communism and what it means. Other topics that have been suggested are education and the nature of work. Of course other topics that could be discussed are things such as militarisation, patriarchy/matriarchy, climate change, the nature of class etc…
Theory is no substitute for action, but action without theory is directionless and an expression of alienation.
Our theory must feed our practice, which in turn must feed our theory.
See you on Sunday!
