I feel more home here then any finnish anarchist web site, communism is thing in finland what soviet has but so much negative emotion on it, they dont see it way to anarchy, ekoanarchist are more active here. I dont dear to speak about anarchocommunism it would be too much ...then since 1994 more or less active at anarchist movement in finland and my work as an artist is thing where can express my ideology, so i dont do art for money but for thought.

Hi,

I'm new here and probably out of my depth, but joined as an alternative to watching BBC - Question Time debate with Nigel Farage on Immigration, BBC 2 - Debate on benefit cheats, ITV - Fat people claiming benefits because they are too fat to work, Channel 4 - Benefits Street, Channel 5 - The big immigration debate with Katie Hopkins, and other associated, Are we getting all the fat people from Europe coming over here to steal out benefits and eat out chips... programmes.

Forgive me if I've got the channels and their associated programmes the wrong way round, there are so many these days its hard to keep up.

Hey AG, I'm in Oxford. smile

There's a few anarchists in Oxford. I'm in Thames Valley SolFed (which covers Oxford) we meet in town every fortnight. There's also a number of other Anarchists who don't belong to any specific group.

Feel free to send me a PM if you want to find out any more. smile

Hello, I'm Conall and this is the first anarcho type group I have joined online, so I'm still not entirely sure what I'm doing. I'm sure I'll get the hang of it eventually... Though, if anyone has any tips on how to create blogs etc, it would be greatly appreciated tongue

Hello everyone!
I just recently made this account, I have been lurking on this site for a few years but never really ever got that much into debth with it.

A little about me and my experience with anarchism:

I am from Denmark,Europe and I am in my mid-teens.
I play video games and when I am not busy with my school, sometimes read political litterature(Laziness always wins over me)
I started reading about anarchism two years ago which would also be the same span of years when I started becoming politically active. I wouldn't say I know alot about anarchism but I have read a few essays and have a broad knowledge of most of the writers and organisations and theory of social hiearchy that exists in Europe and in the United States. I realize in order for me to convince anyone that Anarchism in order to work, I would need to read up upon previous experiments, which I unfortunately haven't done so in detail. That has always been the turning points in debates where I suddenly run out of arguments when I critisize capitalism and the state, that I have a hard time explaining fully successful experiments. I of course always bring out The Spanish Revolution 1936-1939 or The Free Territory of Ukraine. But I would love to get some more details about their ways of organizing and some accomplishments that the anarchist movement has contributed to the world. Looking forward to read and learn more from this site and meet a bunch of you.
Being this young also still has barrier of things I yet not understand when I read things, which I try to overcome, so anything that is simple and easy to understand would be helpful!
Thank you for reading this and I hope you would love to help me smile

Hi everyone, I'm a 26 year-old female, new to politics but interested in the social and economical problems humanity are facing in today's society. I am very much opposed to certain "gaps" that exist in the world today and I think a lot of things have to change in order for us to grow as a society, but I won't get into that now. Thanks for reading!

Peace!

I'm not sure if I posted here previously - I joined this forum about a year ago when I knew pretty much nothing about anarchism and communism and just remembered that I had an account which I haven't used.

Anyway, I'm 13 years old, live in the UK and would most accurately be described as a Luxemburgist, but since that isn't really a distinct political tendency within the socialist movement I usually align myself with German-Dutch left communism. Although I am a Marxist and do advocate a dictatorship of the proletariat, I'm strongly against Leninist vanguardism and favour a revolution brought about through workers' self-organisation and a subsequent state managed from the bottom up by directly democratic workers' councils. I'm also a feminist and think that integrating into the struggles of women, racial minorities, LGBTs and disabled/mentally ill people as well as of workers should be a priority of the socialist movement. So...yeah. I look forward to participating in discussion on this site!

Hey, welcome! Yes I see you registered a while ago as your username is no longer valid! Don't mean to sound patronising but that is a pretty impressive set of political ideas for 13-year-old (I didn't even find out what socialism was until I was 19, and the ideas of Rosa Luxemburg until a good few years later!). So look forward to hearing your views in discussions

Hello. I'm from the UK, New to the site. Always been on the far left but can't really ever seem to settle on a tendency/ideology. Bit Anarchisty, bit Marxisty, bit Leninisty, bit Council Communisty. I'm basically an ambivalent revolutionary torn between the seductions of authoritarian practicalism and ethical-purist libertarianism.

I'm mostly here to learn and to test out my ideas and thoughts and what not.

A book that inspires me is 'In Dubious Battle' by John Steinbeck. It deals with the real life of communists and the struggles faced in the field. It only describes the practical aspect of communism and ignores the theoretical. Most importantly it is a good read.

I don't know if the book is translated into Danish. Skol

What's good pals? I'm an insurrecto from San Jose, Cali, U$A. Heard good things about this place, I'm hoping to meet some cool kats. As you can see by my name and pic I am very into Latino culture, being Latino myself. Despite my tendency towards mostly agitating, I've been trying to think of how to launch a freestore/survival program in this city. Also despite being the 3rd most populous city, in the most populous state in the United $nakes, San Jose doesn't have much of a rebellious scene but the potential is definitely here. So in my developing and practicing my project I hope to organize a few people, enough to at least have a common crew with which to speak and hold demos with. At least enough people to hold up a decent banner. Anyways I should go to sleep soon. Goodnight for now. Good luck to you all, and wish me some luck back in this direction. Thanks!
