AF meetings at forthcoming Sheffield Anarchist Book Fair this weekend (May 11)

5:00 - 15:50
The Idea of the Commune
- Anarchist Federation

A presentation outlining how the idea of the commune and the federation of communes developed amongst anarchist communists in the 1870s and 1880s . They saw the commune as the “vehicle of revolution”. Whilst the idea of the commune seeks to involve all sections of the working class, be they women, unemployed, youth, the old, etc the meeting argues that anarcho-syndicalism limits struggle and the involvement of large sections of the working class. Anarchist communists need to re-affirm the idea of the commune.

MEETING ROOM 2 - Fred Charles Room

11:00 - 11:50
Anarcha-feminism and Safer Spaces
- Anarchist Federation

This meeting hosts discussion around the development of anarcha-feminism in Britain and the development of ‘safer spaces’ policies, in the context of current discussions around sexual predation in the anarchist movement and in the authoritarian left. The Anarchist Federation offers an arena for working out where to go next.
