"In Spain we have an anarchist movement that is more or less solid. It's like a rock with cracks in it. We have serious internal problems, but we have a strong movement of squatting… we also have a strong culture of music, zines, books, information to share and relationships between areas that connect lots of different people. We have a web." - Mario, an anarchist in Madrid interviewed recently by Jeremy Kay.

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'.
