Anarchist Dayschool: A day of discussion and workshops which focus on
the ideas behind anarchism and the organisational issues facing the
anarchist and grassroots anti-authoritarian movement.
12PM onwards, Saturday the 6th of November @ the Kinning Park Centre in
Kinning Park (Just outside Kinning Park Underground).
Glasgow has a tradition of anarchist dayschools, many of which have
inspired, educated and spawned new ideas for the direction of the
anarchist movement. This time round the Glasgow Autonomous Project is
hosting a dayschool with the following workshops:-

* Class: useful perspectives and ways of modelling and thinking about
this all-consuming issue which is the basis behind why we organize.

* Feminism: why are so few women involved in the anarchist movement?
what's the difference between your sex and your gender? addressing the
myth that all anarchists already have a feminist critique and the
practical issues involved in achieving gender equality.

* Fishing - Communities in crisis: With fish quotas being cut,
fishermen are out of work and communities across the North are facing
poverty. An account of the situation in the North-East and discussion on
how anarchists can organise to defend our all-too-frequently
marginalized sisters and brothers there; particularly important and
topical for those looking for issues to organize around in the general
response the G8 conference in 2005.
(George from The Moray Against Poverty Network)

* How we organize as libertarians: A discussion comparing and
discussing different anarchist ways of making group decisions and
organising on a wider scale.
(Alistair D. - Glasgow Autonomous Project)

* Anarchism and Marxism - exploding the mythology behind the apparent
polar oppositions in the left and some suggestions for how we can avoid
the childish "yah-booh" sloganeering which has coloured our relations
with our comrades in the socialist parties, without compromising on our
(Thomas - Glasgow based Libertarian Socialist)

* Nationalism and Colonization: A critique of the classic anarchist
stance on nationalism and an exploration of what it means to be
colonized, to have one's language, culture and expressions of self
smothered, oppressed and obliterated and what this means in the Scottish
context for our politics and our organisation.
(Nick - Glasgow Autonomous Project)

* What's wrong with meetings: An analysis of why it's difficult to get
people to attend meetings, why they fail to be democratic and inclusive,
why they are a bad way to organize and what we can do instead to face up
to this challenge.
(Alice - Glasgow Autonomous Project)

* The Situation in Australia - A look at Australia's recent past and a
description of the state of the Australian left and the challenges faced
by our comrades there.
(Roz and Kate - Australian comrades involved in a variety of left groups
in Glasgow)
