National Young Unionists and Workers Conference

Has anyone seen this? I was thinking about going along and handing out Syndicalist literature, is anyone else interested?

That'd be a little fun. But a long way to travel(at least from my hood) to leaflet a conference smile

I guess if i'm kickin' around with not much to do though.. I've never been to canberra. hmm.

But then what would it achieve? We could turn some young labor into anarcho-syndicalists? This might work, but could just lead to endless bickering, so maybe it's best to let them go their own way, into the dead end of reform, and organise on our own turf?

Well I was thinking there could be things to learn from the conference, I haven't had much experience with organising myself so there could be positive elements.

And isn't that precisely the point , saving some people from turning into labourites!

True, i'd love to save some pre-laborites, and even make some ex-ones.
Starting an anarchist communist group has created 2 ex greens, aswell as some people already being ex-resistance. For some reason, people love being in a group where they don't get told what to do. Beats me!

I found out that this costs a hundred bux. I do have that sort of money, but have more pressing things in my own town to waste it on.

$100 to hear Paul Howes speak? I'd be demanding payment of $100.
