Kent Communist Group

New Initiative based in Kent.

Here is the info From the Facebook group.

Quote:
The Kent Communist Group is an organization of Marxist and Anarchist Communists who oppose both capitalism and the state and who wish to see the creation of a free communist society.

We provide a platform for cooperation and debate between revolutionary communists. We are not a specific political organization but provide points of common agreement as the basis of revolutionary cooperation.

These Points of agreement are:

- Global Revolution For the overthrow of capitalism.
- Proletarian Internationalism and Opposition to Nationalism of all Kinds.
- Opposition to Stalinism and State Capitalism.

As an organization seeking to facilitate cooperation between communists of different tendencies, we seek to provide activities that are practical and activities that are more theoretical and further our understanding of communism – its history and ideas.

If people in the Kent area want to get involved either find the group on Facebook or Email: kentcommunistgroup@googlemail.com

Sounds promising - sort of 'libcom' discussion group. There should be more of these.

We tried something similar with the 'Manchester Class Struggle Forum' but after a good start it rather fizzled out so hope you have more success.

I found out about this at the CWO meeting in London which the Dude came to. It's an excellent initiative and I hope we can meet others in group soon.

It sounds very promising indeed, greetings and good luck on behalf of the Midlands Discussion Forum (I haven't asked the others but I really don't think they'll object)!
