AF national conferences

Do you have em? If so, when's the next one and can Freedom get a report? This being in the interests of fairness cos I'm asking Solfed for similar...

about the content of the conference afterwards? No i don't think so. I think last years was documented - but maybe that was just an internal thing i can't remember...

There is a certain level of privacy in some things - like members wanting to talk to members without making it a public debate, which is oh so possible with the internet, but i can't see why the agenda couldn't be realeased.

The decisons made would presumably be public anyway cos they'd make up public activity.

We definately put out a little report detailng what decisions had been made last year. Obviously there's some stuff that we like to keep internal.

Can't see why putting out a report for Freedom this year would be a problem, anyway. Though I didn't think Freedom went in for this kind of internal anarchist stuff.

I'm sure one of us will raise at at conference and get back to you, but perhaps it would have been better if you'd contacted the National Secretary via email rather than through here.
Conference looks good this year, with a good turnout and exciting prospects with the current quite large growth of the AF

Really looking forward to it. The potential turnout looks good. The main theme is "theoretical and tactical unity". I can't see why people wouldn't talk about it afterwards, it's unlikely we'll be plotting the actual date of the revolution smile In any event we always invite some non-members along as well as offering an invite to Solfed to send a delegate.

Yeah current setup is the main articles go to big issues and newsgathering, some of the smaller ones cover internal stuff, and every so often we do a special (eg. the ‘what’s on this year’ thing) . All part of the plan to make us indispensable to both the general public and anarchists wink.

With the new members the AF seems to be on the up. Fair play.

Wow speedy response. Thanks martin. For some reason I thought the AF was the main show in Manchester town. I know SF and AF are friendly there though. Which is good.

Both groups are relatively large in Manchester and work together quite frequently. It should be like that everywhere.

Well, not much need I'd have thought for BIROC as quite a few of us are in the IWW. Plus the BIROC meeting is on at the same time as the Afed conference, so it'd be difficult for anyone to get along. We're even missing a couple of our memebrs cos they're going to BIROC.

AF and Solfed in Manchester? Both quite active, Solfed are a bit bigger when it comes to formal membership, though we hope to grow a bit in the near future. Relations are very good when we manage to meet up, which isn't always possible. We should be working together on the official Mayday demo here.
