(en) Britain, London bookfair talks with John Holloway, author of Change the World without Taking Power

Date Mon, 12 Oct 2009 19:55:03 +0200

Two London meetings with John Holloway, 24th & 26th October: ---- ANARCHIST BOOKFAIR/MUTE
MAGAZINE DISCUSSION, 4-6pm, Saturday 24th October, London ---- Capitalism’s Present
Crisis - How Will It End? ---- The capitalist system is facing years of crisis and social
instability. This raises two questions: ---- 1) what caused the crisis? Was it ‘greedy
bankers’, the natural tendencies of the capitalist system, or the resistance of the
working class? ---- 2) how will the crisis end? Will it be with more state regulation,
more cuts in living standards or with working class revolution? --- The Anarchist Bookfair
and Mute magazine have invited three speakers to debate these issues: ---- Paul Mason, a
presenter on BBC’s Newsnight, and author of Meltdown: The End of the Age of Greed --- John
Holloway, author of Change The World Without Taking Power and Crack Capitalism
(forthcoming). See below for a further meeting with John Holloway.

William Dixon, Mute magazine contributor.

The discussion will take place at the Skeel Lecture Theatre, Anarchist Bookfair, Queen
Mary & Westfield college, Mile End Road, London E1, Mile End tube.

7-9pm, Monday 26th October, London

At the height of the anti-capitalist movement, John Holloway’s book Change The World
without Taking Power provoked an international debate*. Eight years later, after the
failure of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, combined with the failure of the capitalist
economy, anti-capitalism is back on the agenda.
John Holloway will introduce his forthcoming book, Crack Capitalism, followed by a
discussion on how we can change the world without repeating the tragedies of twentieth
century socialism.

Come and join the debate.

*To read the debate around the book Change The World Without Taking Power, go to:

VENUE: The Octagon Room*, Queen's Building, Queen Mary & Westfield College, Mile End Road,
London E1, Mile End Tube. (The event will be followed by a social at the Half Moon pub,
213-233 Mile End Road, London E1)
*NB There is a small chance that the room in which the event is held may be altered. Check
metamute.org for up to date information closer to the date.
