‘Books and Beverages’ invites you back this month for another discussion.
Evey so often we get together at a pub/cafe to discuss a chosen paper, zine or book. From topical themes and radical history, to ideas around organising and other random rants, we hope to gain some knowledge, exchange ideas, and have a few drinks (+chips) while doing it.
The reading this month is:
Wages Against Housework
This text was one of many that came out of the Wages For Housework movement, a movement that argued unwaged and domestic labour (primarily by women) was essential to capitalism.
The link is the HTML version, or there is also a PDF download.
Another (totally optional) reading is Counter-Planning From the Kitchen: http://caringlabor.wordpress.com/2010/10/20/nicole-cox-and-silvia-federici-counter-planning-from-the-kitchen/.
Here is a critique of the Wages for Housework campaign by Angela Davis: http://issuu.com/garagecollective/docs/davis_on_housework
WHEN: Thursday 24th May 6.00pm
WHERE: The Coffee House, 290 Montreal Street (opposite the old Dux De Lux), Christchurch Central. (MAP: http://g.co/maps/ddj6s)
Books & Bevs is an informal, open space and anyone interested is welcome to take part.
