(en) Anarchist Federation Nottinghamshire: Two revolting anniversary events ending with 8 in Nottingham 3rd & 23rd June - come, & tell others!

Date Tue, 5 Jun 2018 08:19:19 +0300


Please come to, and tell lots of people about, these Nottingham based events on the subject of the hugely important 1968 and 1848 events put on by Nottingham's People's Histreh group, The Sparrows' Nest archive & library, and others. ---- Film showing of ‘If ...' with exhibition and panel discussion ---- On Sunday 3rd June (tomorrow!) join Nottingham's radical history group Peoples' Histreh for a film screening, an exhibition of original sources and a panel session of people sharing their memories of struggles fought here in Nottingham during that iconic year, which saw deeply-rooted conflicts erupt into open revolts all around the globe. Events start midday at the Broadway Cinema, Hockley, Nottingham. ---- The film screening is ticketed. You will be able to purchase tickets from Broadway Cinema at their usual rates from early May. The exhibition and the panel session are free of charge but spaces for the panel session are limited (first come, first served).

Schedule

Midday-2pm: film screening of "if...." (ticketed as a typical film showing)

2-3pm: browse our exhibition (free)

3-5pm: panel session (free)

Details

From Midday to 2pm there will be a screening of "if....", followed by an hour (2-3pm) to have some lunch and browse our exhibition of fantastic source materials (pamphlets, newssheets, posters, unpublished correspondence, etc.) documenting the 1968 Revolts in Paris, Berlin, Prague (etc.), and of course events here in Nottingham. At 3pm we will get together for a panel session with people sharing some of their memories of the struggles fought in Nottingham in 1968 (spoilers: the struggle for equal pay and anti-racist work were already high on the agenda five decades ago!).

Then, Saturday 23rd June The Sparrows' Nest presents

The 1848 Revolutions: An Anarchist Perspective
A talk by Iain McKay - visiting speaker, editor and co-author of the famous an Anarchist FAQ and Property is theft!: a Pierre-Joseph Proudhon reader.

Summary

The Revolutions of 1848 remain the most widespread revolutionary wave in European history. While remembered as essentially liberal in nature, aiming at ending the old monarchical regimes they were also note-worthy for the advent of the industrial working class as a factor in social struggle. So as well as political change, the social question was raised while the events of 1848 shaped the ideas of Marx and Proudhon. So on their 150th anniversary, we look at the 1848 revolutions and their lessons for today.

Saturday June 23rd 3pm at The Sparrows' Nest, Nottingham.

Contact the Sparrows' Nest if you need directions or have questions about accessibility.
