Hello!

I'm Dom, studying Sociology at Exeter University, England. Erstwhile head of Respect and SWSS on campus. I'm a pacifist dual systems revolutionary marxist (or something like that).

I'm also very glad I found this website, what a great resource

Hi dom, welcome to the boards. If you're in SWSS, can I ask if you've read this?

Hi

what can i say... i'm an ecologist wannabe...

i am confident we can build something on capitalism, which would wipe it away, and then hopefully get rid of military wars.

i wish to find here people who are as convinced as i am.

we all deal with money, wether we want it or not, don't we?

let's put it together with our differences and create a parallel International Monetary Fund or call it People's Bank,...

red green black from the left or under, but together in peace.

I've been meaning to join-up here for a while.

Just thought I'd say a quick 'hi'.

I don't honestly know how much I'll contribute and how much I'll lurk (hope thats alright). Not much of an arguer but I'll stand-up if theres a point to be made. I enjoy reading the opinions of others, especially if they happen to co-incide with my own and I can reel them off in the pub, so people will think i'm dead clever, loike. grin

Much love

Well, like McCormick says, here's one Leicester based anarcho-communist and wobbly for you. Get in touch.

hello all, i sort of used to lurk around this site when it was enrager, without really posting (under the username blueporta) but ive now managed to buy an old computer, so i am hoping to contribute to and learn from these boards from now on. im 35 year old male from a crappy rural town in warwickshire and ive worked with homeless people and drug misusers for about 13 years, most recently with rough sleepers in the midlands. i would describe myself as a libertarian communist i spose, but with a definate 'green' perspective. to be honest, ive got a lot to learn and have a thousand questions about anarchism, so im hoping to ask a few of em in the beginners forum. heavyweight political theory has never come easy to me, i just have an innate hatred of capitalism! i'm quite sceptical about anarchism in some ways, but thats why im here and my scepticism is meant in the right spirit, ie to learn. i am vegan and and a hunt saboteur, which im aware may well incur the wrath of some people round here, somewhat unfairly i have to say, but i believe very deeply in those things, so i aint about to change for anyone. ive never really been a member of any anarchist group, im happy enough to do my own thing. anyway, take care all, s.

Hey there - i remember you blueporta you've been around for ages! Welcome with your new name.

Hey don't be silly - a huge proportion of posters here are vegan/veggie/pro-animal rights or whatever. The only issue people take is anarchists who say that all anarchists must be vegan/huntsab/punks whatever. Some critics take the piss out of this and go a bit too far, but it's all in good humour. If anyone did slag you off for your lifestyle choices they would be being as bad as the people they are criticising.

Although I do entertain myself for hours waving hamburgers and steaks in front of PETA types(trying to organize a barbecue in front of one dude's house). I have no malice towards non self-righteous animal lib folks.

Hi, this is Serge Forward's son, I am interested in anarchism and generally think that it is a very intelligent and fair idea. My dad didn't make me say all this stuff as I am very independant. I'm doing a paper round and want to join the IWW too, and try and get all the other kids organised as well. red n black star

To be honest i have only got round to reading what the whole libcom movement is about,i had it saved on my pc for ages but never got round to reading up on it.I am delighted with the response and welcome from the members though.that is allways a big plus as many forums can be a bit cold.
