I should think so. PM me your email address and I'll pass it on to the national secretary.

You know the "Donation" towards AFED? Do you have to pay it? What about if you're a student or unemployed, moneys hard to have, even to keep. You nearly have to fucking pay to live now!

Well nobody's going to show up on your doorstep with a bat if you don't pay, but it is generally expected that you pay subs if you can afford it.

just thinking [now course i don't know what you're policy is on people such as me] whether any groups are doing anything i would like to be a part of.

Quote:
in support of Russian comrades arrested at the G8 in St Petersburg

maybe depends on what you think of anarchism tongue

Quote:
In mid-June we helped with the Projectile Anarchist Film Festival in Newcastle

comes across as really positive, not knowing myself much at all about the event.

Quote:
mysteriously appeared all over London and Manchester

sounds like fun.

Quote:
industrial policy being a major topic of discussion. After supporting Gate Gourmet airline catering workers at the end of 2005, AFers took action over pensions in March as mentioned earlier, held solidarity pickets outside coffee houses for the sacked Starbucks IWW members in USA, and participated in a picket of JJB Sports.

i guess that outside equally mysterious community action this is what i meant. i'd have to know more about how these are intended to go to think about whether giving up my own time.

Quote:
We have supported the development of the IWW union

i am already liberal with my own solidarity for the IWW grin

Quote:
30 people got nicked by 800 cops and one journalist was put in a coma by a police baton charge.

is this the circled A and if so who are its parasites groucho

not interested in journalism myself or "posting on libcom" smile

yeah so sounds like the circled A but i'd like to know more about your industrial intentions maybe to help judge what that's about.

the first real job i ever had the staff there were so militant it's very weird looking back. i just don't understand how "we" could fuck that up and if it was because of anarchism, social democracy, or just that i'm a fantasist.

[/memory lane] not that it's important to anyone else.

admin - bollocks posts removed. watch it

Would you not withdraw voting rights from members who aren't paying subs? You should.

We try to be flexible about it, not everybody can afford to pay on time, every time. As long as nobody takes the piss, it's not an issue.

without clarification i can only assume that it's because i'm not sexy enough - just as lazy riser was saying... you sexy young fools.

i would like to see someone suggest it's because i'm anti-working class; likely because if the did i would likely change.
