New 'theory & practice' pamphlet series launched

"This series is published to both document interesting accounts from workers in struggle, as well as attempts to draw the theoretical lessons from them. Both original and republished texts are included. Most, but not all, are from the anarcho-syndicalist tradition. All are selected for their relevance for workers looking to organise today. The first two titles cover the Workmates collective on the London Underground, and an expanded reprint of the (now out of print) 1995 SolFed pamphlet on the shipyard struggles in Puerto Real."

Both are available to buy from the SolFed website here. Get in touch with Brighton SolFed at brightonsolfed[AT]googlemail.com if you want international and/or bulk orders and we'll work something out.

It will go online in the not-too-distant future, but we need to make back some of our printing outlay first as the series has to be self-financing.

Forgot to say these will be available from the SolFed stall at the Bristol Anarchist Bookfair on Saturday, and will be cheaper in person (£1.50) as there's no p&p costs.

the introduction to the Workmates pamphlet is online here. when the full text is uploaded it will be on that page too. comments are enabled for non-SolFed members if anyone has any questions or feedback. if there's lots of interesting questions we'll do another interview and an expanded second edition.

Yes, there's a number of pamphlets, incl. on workplace organising, and on anarcho-syndicalism to incorporate the discussions that have taken place within SolFed recently.
