As in, this one?

The idea is to have one specifically for anarchists in Australia. The other existing ones have either a/ collapsed, are b/ inactive or c/ a pain in the ass to get into (such as bull.anarchy - which is actually a combination of the three)

well since you ask, i think like every other anarchist teenager you would prefer to reinvent wheel than get involved in actual existing anarchist projects grin

I have to be the only anarchist i know that didn't go through this stage, but then i was a socialist in my acne and skateboard years.

Its an even bigger quirk that the posters older than that tend to be the most enthused. tongue

basically running a board is a lot of work, so you might find it easier to use the existing oceania boards on here than to set up and run your own. In terms of bringing new people to the boards then libcom's relatively high google rankings etc will also help.

I have to agree. I live in Australia and one thing that keeps me coming to libcom is that it is so active and that's what I was looking for... and it's not just people from the UK here. I found that most of the local boards, as well as being fairly inactive, didn't attract people from OS so there was a lack of an international perspective that I was looking for too. Also, even if there are only a few oceania folk posting regularly here, there are a whole lot more that still check it out... you just gotta hang the right bait out for them to grab onto.
All the best.

Haha, you prick.
Is that right?
Well, okay, actually we organized a youth anarchist collective, so that we could organize around issues effecting young people, particularly in the workplace - around such issues as "youth wages", and the mistreatment of young workers.
As well, I actually have been involved in other anarchist projects, such as helping to run the Jura bookshop, and so on.

Thanks for the pointers anyway, and a congratulations on being a fuckwit.

Yours,
Nick.

in all seriousness then, how young is young and how old do you think most libcom and revleft posters are?

Unless you are aiming at 13 - 18 year olds (a questionable premise) i've never really seen the point in a youth group. If it is dominated by people generally 18 plus then they are adults and would fit into a regular group.

Pretty much people who fit into the "youth wages" category - as thats one of the center points of organizing at the moment. So, that pretty much ranges from 14 (and 9 months), to about 19.

Do whatever you think best. As for http://bull.anarchy.org.au I've recently gotten Admin access, and so can authorise anyone who wants to join. If you do, send me a PM. It has not collapsed, but is largely inactive, for reasons which have more to do with the general state of the anarchist milieu than for any other reason. Certainly, my blog generates much more discussion...

Hey @ndy, after I got your reminder that AABB was still kicking I posted 3 times and now I can't even get to the site at all. Have I had access denied?

It seems to be working for me. A glitch in the matrix? (No, access has not been denied.)
