SELF-MANAGEMENT IN AUSTRALIA: A critical account of the 1970s Brisbane Self-Management Group
Presented by Tim Briedis
A continuing series of monthly talks and discussions at Jura on different aspects of anarchism.
The Brisbane Self-Management Group (SMG) of the 1970s was the largest libertarian socialist organisation in Australia to exist in recent decades, with members in universities, high schools, industrial and white-collar workplaces agitating around the politics of daily life.
Today, revolutionary activists still face the same sort of dilemmas as did the SMG. What insights into contemporary radical practice can be gained from an examination of this organisation’s strengths and weaknesses?

You can read Tim’s thesis on the SMG at http://anarchistsummerschool.files.wordpress.com/2012/07/tim_briedis_fin...
