Christchurch Anarchist-Communist Discussion Group

Wednesday 5th May, 7pm
Workers Educational Association, 59 Gloucester St

Continuing on from last month’s discussion about recent attacks on the working class, the Anarchist-Communist Discussion Group in May will look at anarcho-syndicalism, industrial networks and new forms of workplace/community organising.

Before the discussion, you should read the short article on the topic (.pdf format, 428kb). We will have copies available on the night, but reading beforehand and thinking about ideas it brings up will enable better discussion.

From the discussion article:
“The old ways of struggle have failed. Traditional trade unions, politicians and protest marches are inefective in resisting attacks on the working class. What is needed is radical forms of resistance that are accesible, constructive, and at the same time, revolutionary. Could one solution be the formation of anarcho-syndicalist networks and assemblies, both in the workplace and our communities?”

The group meets on the first Wednesday of every month and aims to provide a space for the open discussion of anarchist-communist ideas and practice. Each month there will be a short article to read or a short video to watch, that we can then discuss together.

It’s free, and tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided.

The group is a joint effort of the Christchurch branch of the Aotearoa Workers Solidarity Movement and Beyond Resistance.

See you there!
