The Anarchist-Communist Discussion Group invites you to our first meeting on Wednesday March 3 at 7pm at the WEA, 59 Gloucester Street.
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.
For the first meeting, we will be watching a video of a talk given by Barry Pateman, a vastly experienced British anarchist now based in the USA. He is one of the editors of the Emma Goldman Papers and a curator of the Kate Sharpley Library (one of the largest anarchist libraries in the world). He is also editor of the book ‘Chomsky on Anarchism’. Barry spoke in Wellington in May last year, and we will be showing the video of the talk at our first meeting, followed by discussion of the ideas raised in it.
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.
