Welcome to the Edinburgh University Anarchist Society Week 7

Welcome to the Edinburgh University Anarchist Society website. We use this space to inform anyone interested in the events the society is putting on and to display contact details for getting involved with us.

We are a group of people unhappy with the current state of the world and looking for change. We share the common values of equality, liberty and respect and believe that by implementing these in our every day lives we can make a difference.

We operate as a non-hierarchical community of equals who meet each week to plan new ideas for activities and direct action. We make our decisions by full consensus and value the opinion of the newest member as much as the oldest. There is no charge for the society and the environment is friendly and respectful toward the opinions of others. We don’t all call ourselves anarchists and each person has a different idea of how they envision change for the future; we count these differences among our assets and strengths as a diverse and dialectic community.

To get involved with the society, find out more about us and what we are or even ask us a few clarifying questions, please come along to one of our meetings, or social events detailed below. Additionally, keep checking this space for updated new events that EUAS will be holding throughout the year. These involve guest lectures, film nights, reading groups, radical art groups, skill share days and more.
