Leicester Meeting - Nation or Class? 23/01/18

Leicester Anarchist Communists (formerly Leicester AF) run regular libertarian socialist discussion meetings. This month's topic is...

Nation or Class?
7.30pm on Tuesday 23rd Jan
Upstairs at the Regent Club
102 Regent Road
Leicester LE1 7DA
(5 mins walk from Leicester train station)

"The working class has no country!" But what does this really mean, when workers in any given country seem to willingly embrace the idea of the nation, patriotism, nationalism and all the baggage that goes with these concepts. And it's not just a matter of the popularity of far right governments in Poland, Hungary and the USA but also includes the left, some anarchists included, who continue to support national liberation struggles. So this meeting aims to explore the potential for building genuine class politics in the face of the ever present ideas of the nation.
