Hi. I'm new here, joined today. I am a member on www.revolutionaryleft.com which is cool if you're not already a member. I am a Castroist mainly and I have very strong socialist beliefs. I am 15 years old and...well...hi!

What do you mean when you say you have "mainly Castroist beliefs"?

Well I am not totally anarchist, I do have anarchistic views but I am more of a 'Fidel Castro believer' (Castroist). I joined these forums as they were mentioned on RevLeft and it said they were British. I might try and find out about the Ipswich anarchists meetings etc. though, should be good to get involved in. But I am more towards the Communist side of socialism rather than the anarchist side, although I am a great believer in fundamentals of both. I just think we should kind of 'mix the two together' (i.e. Castro). I guess I'm sort of anarcho-communist, I'm not really sure.

I see... i dont really understand how Castro could be thought of as anarchist (or communist for that matter). Many people might say that the communist side of socialism - is the anarchist side. Anyway you might wanna check out this page just to see the terms im talking in...

Can you post a link to the revleft thread? I registered ages ago (and just re-regiestered there actually) but never really get stuck into it much...

Just joined the forum about a week ago, but have been coming to the site for quite a while to read about the latest happening.

I live in the West Midlands near Wolverhampton but I’m originally from Yorkshire. I grew up in a mining and farming community which of course is now a posh commuter suburb of Leeds. My mother was always old school labour, with a bit of Liberal thrown in, so my anarchist leanings started there.

While I have to admit I have been pretty quiet on the getting off my arse and doing anything front. I realised that had to change after the election and my continuing war with the local council. Also I have become increasingly bitter over the last few years over the way the mainstream press lies to us or reports the news several weeks after the fact.

Just got in touch with the WMA on this board, so I should be around for a while.

Lydia…

Hey. I'm from Canada. Joined a few days ago. This place seems pretty cool so far (nice to get away from Leninists once in a while).

I found this site from a link somewhere on revolutionaryleft.com (probably the same one as che1990), but, unlike him, I'm no Castroist. I'm a libertarian Marxist and, uh, ya. That's my introduction.

Hiya all,

The main reason I've signed up is that I'm trying to sort out the libcom-hosted website for Liverpool Social Forum. I was told that "john" had been dealing with it, & I left a pm for him on Monday, but no reply yet

What we desperately need to get sorted (so that we can stick it on posters and stuff) is hooking a domain name up to the site. Does libcom have a preferred/recommended domain registrar?

Would really appreciate quick reply about this. Could also do with knowing: can we use MySQL? what about any mailboxes using the LSF domain once we have it?

general intro: i work in a bookshop, I'm involved with Liverpool Defy ID, I've read the bookjacket blurb for every thinker that gets name-checked on these forums but haven't ever had the time to actually read any of them, I'll probably be mostly lurking to start with.

cheers,

maria

Hi maria, welcome to the boards!

I never got a PM from you - I guess you must've sent it to "john", rather than me, "John."

Am sending you one now smile

Hello all

I've joined cos... do you know, I'm not entirely sure...

I haven't even heard of most of the folks you chat about, and don't know what my 'politico classification' would be embarrassed

Saying all that, I do love a good dialogue...

hi i am also relitively new.

i have taken in interest in anarchism after studying the Spanish Civil War recently.

i agree with anarchists on some issues but disagree on others. But it is a very interesting topic to talk about.

Damn you oisleep, are there any female posters you won't tease and seduce before cruelly revealing your existing girlfriend?
