Paul Finch: Building an Anarchist Movement in North America
and "Workers' and Students' struggle in British Columbia"
MONTREAL: Tuesday, July 11th, 7 PM at DIRA 2035 St-Laurent, Métro St-laurent
This talk will critically address contempory anarchist theory, practice,
strategy, and tactics... and offer some thoughts on developing a more
effective praxis for the anarchist movement in North America.
Paul Finch has been involved with numerous strikes and anti-war actions
and has been involved in the anti-globalization movement, participating in
the street protests that accompanied the 2001 Summit of the Americas in
Quebec City. He is also a founding member of the Northwest Anarchist
Federation, and currently a rank and file worker and belong to the BC
Government and Service Employee's Union [BCGEU Local 1201], where he is
both a shop steward at his worksite, and a member of the executive for the
4500-person strong BCGEU 1201 Local.

During the recent BC Teacher's Federation strike against the government,
he helped organize wildcat pickets throughout the city, with NAF targeting
and picketing down a specific area. His workplace, like most unionized
public and private workplaces in Victoria, went out on wildcat strike.
