Angry not Apathetic! Anarchists and Elections
Two great opportunities to discuss elections and voting brought to you by the Bristol anarchist bookfair collective and Bristol anarchist federation. Both at 7pm, on Wednesdays 25 February and 11 March. At Kebele Social Centre, 14 Robertson Rd, Easton, Bristol BS5 6JY. All welcome.
The first discussion will look at: if, why, and how anarchists should intervene in elections.
The second will look at responding to the most common and tricky questions put to us, after all ‘if you don’t vote you can’t complain’ right?
The talks are open to anyone, whether you think we should burn our ballots or run for parliament! Like any good debate everyone should come away with something new to think about and possibly some plans for action/intervention.
NB – Worth reading in the context of voting or not, and also in the context of the anti-austerity election victory by Syriza in Greece, is this article written the day after the Syriza win by the Irish WSM. Pay particular attention to its conclusion, AND what is happening to Greece and to Syriza right now as capital and the Troika (EU, ECB, IMF) turn up the heat
