Whatever Happened to the Revolution?

10 June 2018


Venue: Conway Hall, Brockway Room, Red Lion Square, WC1R 4RL

Organiser: Anarchist Communist Group

The Anarchist Communist Group is a revolutionary group that seeks to overthrow the current society, ending exploitation, hierarchy, all oppression as well as stop environmental destruction. The aim is to create an anarchist communist society. To achieve this aim we produce a range of literature, including a newspaper and a website in order to spread anarchist ideas widely. In addition, we are all involved in practical struggles with others on a range of issues.

Most of our time is spent having to resist attacks on all fronts - bosses, the government, and all the general injustices of society. But many of us hold in our hearts a hope for a completely different society. Isn’t it time we put Revolution back at the top of the agenda? What do we need to do to make it a reality rather than just a vague hope at the back of our minds?

Anarchist communists believe firmly in the possibility of working class revolution. This talk/discussion will first present anarchist communist ideas on revolution before opening up to general discussion about revolution today. Some of the questions to discuss are: What do we mean by revolution? What steps can we take now? What are the obstacles?
