What is Anarchism?
On Saturday 29th at approximately 3pm Alex will be conducting a workshop at the St Andrew’s Square occupation with the aforementioned title. It would be really good for a few of us to go along and help out. The occupation seems to be going well, with between twenty and thirty occupiers there at any one time, but, as always, the more the merrier.
There were a few problems with the emailing of the list of films out to everyone. The meeting agreed to leave the choice of film to Euan, and it will be shown at 8pm in the Banshee Labyrinth on Niddry Street.
We had a great discussion of the articles on Fascism last week at the reading group, with a good attendance, and great soup. The group will meet again in the Chaplaincy at 1pm on Monday to discuss Rudolf Rocker’s excellent piece “Methods of Anarcho-Syndicalism”, which can be found here
Radical Book Fair
This wonderful thing is taking place from today until Saturday in the Blue Drill Hall, 30-38 Dalmeny Street, entry is free and there’s lots of lovely things happening there. Joel also asked me to include a request for anyone interested in a radical zine fair on the 6th November to get in contact. We should definitely get some Polemics to that.
Possible Music Group
Complementary to the Radicool Art group, which focuses on visual art, I (Charlie) would really like to have some sort of anarchic jam session or music night. I’m offering my spacious living room for the event. The idea was not just to bring protest songs, but freely jam on tunes and keys that we like. Jam sessions are a great example of the beautiful art that can be produced by a group of equals playing together with no leaders and a minimum of direction and rules. All will be welcome regardless of musical ability or instrument ownership.
The fabulous New Urban Frontier will be playing on Wednesday at the Jazz bar for a Forest cafe fundraiser, much dancing will ensue.
Tomorrow starting at 8:30am there will be a picket of the CEC Council Chambers on the Royal Mile against the privatisation and cuts that the council will be implementing soon. If you can, go along and show your support.
