Anarchism in the 21st century
Hi Jura friends and supporters
What form should anarchism take in the 21st century? What relevance does the last 150 years of anarchist history have? What's the difference between anarchism and anarcho-syndicalism? What do anarchist ideas have to offer in light of the current economic and climate crises? What about the tensions between employment, unemployment, and re-employment? Come and consider these questions with us (and raise more) at the first of a series of Jura Talks - Left Libertarian Discussions. Our first talk is on 'Anarchism in the 21st Century'. Sid Parissi will give a half hour presentation, and then there will be political discussion for an hour or so. Hope you can join the conversation.
---> 6pm, Friday, 18 September. All welcome!
Enjoy a totally different kind of evening at Juracoustic - our monthly night of acoustic music in the library. For more than 6 months Juracoustic has been happening on the last Thursday of every month, with a cornucopia of local and travelling musos. This month, Tired Hands will delight you with fragile songs from centuries old wisdom. And Anna Vo will offer her lovelorn sprinklings of twang ebb under lilting vocals. Feel free to bring a piece of wood with strings, a tube with holes, your humble vocal chords or just your ears to listen. Vegetarian food and refreshments will be available. Donations are appreciated, if you can afford it. Check out http://juracoustic.wordpress.com or http://www.jura.org.au for more info on Juracoustic events.
---> 7pm, Thurs, 27 August. (And then again on Thurs, 24 September with performers TBA.)
