(en) Britain, Anarchist Federation (AFed) Scotland - AUTONOMY* #2 - Introducing the Scottish Education Workers’ Network

Date Fri, 27 Sep 2013 10:39:03 +0300

We are education workers organising to strengthen ties within the education sector here in Scotland, throughout the UK, and around the world. ---- We represent an alternative, rank-and-file, industry-wide model of organising. ---- With the support of the Industrial Workers of the World and other likeminded groups, we are in the process of building a network of workers and students who are interested in fighting for our rights and in developing and sharing anti-capitalist teaching and learning practices through education forums, films, conversations, and writings. ---- Those of us who are members of the IWW will function within our TUC unions as dual carders and will work with other radicals to form caucuses within these unions. The Network also welcomes those with connections to the education sector but who are not currently permanently employed within it, or not members of any union.

Join us if you agree that...

* workers and students, united non-
hierarchically throughout the
education sector, have every right to
make and carry out decisions about
curriculum and working conditions.

* the skills agenda and corporate
control, at all levels of education,
have to go.

* there is no place in our sector for a
division between mental and manual
labour; or on the basis of gender,
religion, ethnicity, or physical ability.
Solidarity, communication, and
compassion within the working class
is essential.

* we need to take militant direct
action against job cuts, department
closures, give-backs on pensions and
benefits, and excessive workloads.

* the crisis in education is part of a
global assault on the public sector, so
building relationships and
coordinated actions across national
boundaries is very important.

* we don’t support mainstream
political parties, including the Labour
party and the SNP, since their
interests and methods are at odds with
our principles of education for

Autonomy is produced by
Anarchist Federation (AFed) Scot-
land. It aims to promote and link
together campaigns that empower
working class people and that
challenge capitalism and irrational
systems of power. We want to re-
port on positive, inspirational ex-
amples of struggle but also stories
which motivate us to act. We will
emphasize things happening in
Scotland and also report on events
in Britain, and around the world.
