Saturday 9th November saw the completion of months of
planning with a very successful anarchist day school.
Organised by the Scottish section of the Anarchist
Federation, around fifty people took part in numerous
workshops. These included 'Anarchism and Marxism',
'Anarchist Organising in our Communities' and 'The
Libertarian Movement Today: Scotland and Beyond'.
Anarchists from across Scotland, from various
organisations and projects (and none) took part.
It's hoped that the day school will become a regular event,
as well as being a springboard for constructive anarchist
activism in Scotland. The next event is provisionally
planned for May next year. Until then, Scottish anarchists
will be applying the ideas and activities discussed.

Protesters blockaded entrances to the Devonport naval
base on 18th November. Six activists locked themselves
together with plastic tubing outside the Albert Gate, while
at the Camel's Head gate four more tried to lock
themselves to the gate itself. Activists from a range of
anti-nuclear and anti-militarist groups have been
protesting at a Ministry of Defence decision to send
nuclear sub HMS Vanguard to Devonport for refitting. On
15th November two 'weapons inspectors', Petter Joelson
and Elisa Silvennoinen, managed to get on board the
submarine as it lay in dock. They were inside for thirty
minutes before being arrested.
