Anarchist Communist Group events at Anti University 2018 in Lomdon

Whatever Happened to the Revolution?
Convened by Anarchist Communist Group
Sunday 10th June 2018
3pm-4.30pm
Conway Hall, Brockway Room, Red Lion Square, WC1R 4RL
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?
Anarchist Fitzrovia: a walking tour
Convened by Anarchist Communist Group
See where Frank Kitz, a leading light in the Socialist League, met with others and downed a pint or two in the process. Visit the sites of Louise Michel's Free School, the German anarchist Autonomie Club, Lilyan Evelyn's anarchist Ferrer School, the haunts of the celebrated Italian anarchist Errico Malatesta, the soup kitchen set up by refugees from the Paris Commune.
Goggle at the building that housed the (in)famous Malatesta Club of the 1950s. See where anarchist sympathiser and artist Augustus John drank. Stand outside The grocer shop of Albert Richard, hero of the Paris Commune, who sold only red beans and rejected reactionary white beans.
Linger at the newsagents run by Armand Lapie, scene of doctrinal disputes. Pause at the spot where the colourful anarchist Xo d'Axa played his barrel organ. All this and much more.
Sat 9 June 2018 15:00 – 17:00
Meeting at Great Portland Street Tube entrance

The Anarchist Fitzrovia: a walking tour looks very interesting. I wish I could make it. But we're having our joint Surrey AF / ACG meeting in that day.

Hopefully I'll be able to make it up to the Whatever Happened to the Revolution? discussion on the Sunday.

Our Surrey AF / ACG meeting is being rescheduled, so I now hope to make it up the the Anarchist Fitzrovia tour.

On the train back from Fitzrovia.
It was a very interesting tour with stories of some amazing sounding characters. Thanks Battlescarred for hosting.
Also, nice to meet Rat as well as some non Libcomming comrades. Having sung Libcom’s praises they will hopefully be on here soon.

It was good to meet you too Noah Fence.

There were many interesting details revealed on Battlescarred's tour. I wish there was a Malatesta Club in London today: https://libcom.org/history/malatesta-club
