(en) Britain, Glasgow Events - Glasgow Autonomy Update~~ 19.10.2016

Date Sun, 23 Oct 2016 15:00:49 +0300

Hi everyone, ---- Some events here featured in last update but have a look through for the new ones!! ---- Love, ---- Your Autonomy Update producing friends ---- Benjamin Franks - Anarchist Engagement in State Elections ---- Wednesday 19th Oct 19:00 ---- Centre for Contemporary Arts (CCA), 350 Sauchiehall Street, G2 3JD ---- The formal rejection of, and refusal to participate in, state elections has been regarded as a core feature distinguishing anarchism from other socialist groupings. Looking at contemporary and classical anarchist positions this talk and discussion draws out many of the core criticisms of parliamentary representationalism that have come to define anarchism's general rejection of electoral politics, showing how electoral politics recreates class hierarchies and inadequately identifies the locations of - and responses to - oppressive power. However, there have been a number of occasions in the UK, Ireland and Australia where anarchists have participated in constitutional politics: from standing as candidates in elections, from participating in referendums.

This event explores the differences in and between various electoral strategies adopted by anarchists and assesses the ways in which constitutionally-entwined anarchists use electoralism to parody and undermine state democratic legitimacy.

This event is part of RIB Project: not by the book

Friday 21 - Sunday 23 October
Tramway and The Art School

Is there a link between how we're divided into populations that can be caged and exiled by the prison-industrial complex, and the ways people's bodies are violently categorised and segregated by race, class, gender or ability?

Episode 8 celebrates all the unruly ways we refuse to be defined by such violence, escape attempts to constrain us, tear down the walls of normative culture and build joy in flight.

3 days of performances, discussions, screenings, workshop and a club with gender non-conforming rebels, students of blackness, lawyers, archivists, anarca-feminist street artists and witches, party hosts, filmmakers, prison abolitionists, poets, DJ's, ex-prisoners and multi-media artists including:
