Praxis - Towards a new anarchist organisation
Speakers from Praxis, which sees its formal launch this September, and from the Irish Workers Solidarity Movement, on the need for specific anarchist organisation to involve our ideas in the mass movements and organisations of the working class. The event will draw on examples from the UK and Ireland, and explain why Praxis is being launched and outline our short term objectives. The WSM will state how they see that the presence of such an organisation has impacted positively on the class struggle in Ireland, and how such an organisation could be useful elsewhere.
