“Through the anarchist organisation anarchists articulate themselves at the political and ideological level, in order to put into practice revolutionary politics and to devise the means – the way of working – that should point to the final objectives: social revolution and libertarian socialism.”
Federação Anarquista do Rio de Janeiro
At our next reading group, we’re discussing “Social Anarchism and Organisation” by the FARJ, a Brazillian anarchist organisation. This month we’ll be reading Chapters 8-16 of the text as translated by Jonathan Payn, available online from Zabalaza books (see: http://zabalazabooks.net/2012/03/20/social-anarchism-and-organisation/). This section of the pamphlet outlines the FARJ’s proposals for how anarchist organisations should operate in practice.
The Red and Black Reading Group aims to be a place to explore and discuss revolutionary theory with like minded people. We want to develop our ideas through discussion and debate, with an eye to applying them in practice. Anyone interested in taking part is welcome. We want to make these discussions as open and accessible as possible, so please get in touch if you have any concerns or need any help from us in order to attend.
Meet at the Packhorse Pub, 208 Woodhouse Lane, from 3 pm on the 29th of November.
