Who's coming to conference?

Who's coming to National Conference?

We're looking forward to a constructive one down in sunny South London. And we have a good restaurant lined up for Saturday night.

Regards,

martin

red n black star IWA FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There maybe some differences in the IWA but for me it is still the best vehicle for international anarchi syndicalism, i just hope that, those outside could be brought back into the international.

Hehe, good one. No, I have smarter things to do for 1st of May than to go to social-democrat unions meeting. In fact, I'll be in Poland where companer@s from pro-IWA group are involved in organizing some very interesting events...

Is it the same weekend as the AFed conference? If not, you'll obviously be invited to send a couple along to ours. You could PM me about this.

" We THe Youth:i just hope that, those outside could be brought back into the international."

Funny, we were having this discussion at the NY anarchist bookfair with some Spanish CNT comrades---one who was part of an old IWA Secretariat.

The discussions was quite interesting and informative.

Good luck with you conference.

USI Roma, not USI-AIT (you are probabbly confused because the socialdemocrats who are attending I07 are still using AIT in their name).

Well, first off - who's actually going to stop them? The state?
Secondly, IWA in Italian is AIL - the Roma lot chose to use AIT (IWA in Spanish and French) in order to confuse people.

Casual readers may be pleased to know that the agenda for conference is somewhat wider than the internal machinations of the IWA.
