Anarchists, including Bristol AFed, threw themselves into the struggle against cuts after the election of the Tory/LibDem coalition in 2010. We joined literally millions of others on strikes, protests, occupations, and direct actions, but after 2012 it all got a bit… quieter, and the cuts continued.

That’s changing this year though, but how can we make sure this new wave of anti-cuts action is more successful? What can we learn from the past five years? What contributions can Anarchists make to the struggle (and what contributions SHOULD we make)?

We recommend reading the following two articles, although its not required! Anyone looking to fight the cuts or learn more is welcome, whether or not you consider yourself an Anarchist.

Poking a Future Monarch with a Stick
A critical analysis of the anti-cuts movements against the ConDem coalition written by a Bristol AFed member.

A Storm is Coming
An article from one of our friends in SolFed about why the anti-cuts movement is about to kick off again

Here’s a Facebook Event for the discussion (in case you’re into that sort of thing)

This is the second of our monthly discussion meetings (taking place on the third Tuesday of every month).
