Anarchism

How I became an anarchist when anarchist parents raised me

It sounds obvious right? But like any belief you have to feel it for yourself or it’s not real. My parents understood this, as they were both raised Catholic and had to find their own way to something they could believe in. They realized that when it came to raising their own children they could do as generations before them have done and simply ram dictum down our throats or they could teach us to think for ourselves. They taught us to be strong in our own ideas, to respect other humans, respect and love nature, to have an interest in the world around us, to challenge authority and to never give up on what we believe in and what we want from life. They taught us to believe in equality for all, to have sympathy, and more importantly to have empathy.

Interview: anarchism and the meaning of freedom

Jeremy was interviewed by Daisy, a high-school student from Blacktown, in July 2014.

"Hi Daisy, I've done my best to answer your questions properly, but briefly. It was very difficult! You've asked lots of interesting and challenging questions which we anarchists think deserve thorough consideration. In fact, that's exactly why we at Jura run a bookshop and library filled with thousands of books dealing with these questions and issues! I hope you will come in and check them out – you'll find much more thorough answers than the ones I've given below.

Anarchist Bookfair - Sydney's first ever!

Saturday, March 22, 2014 -
10:30am to 5:00pm

 

In association with Jura Books, Black Rose, and other anarchists, the Sydney Anarchist Bookfair collective is organising Sydney's first ever Anarchist Bookfair.

We aim to have over 50 stalls on the day including publishers, zine producers, radical t shirt designers, anarchist groups, and various campaign groups distributing free information on everything from community gardens to indigenous rights.

Several keynote speakers will discuss various topics of interest in our speaker’s corner, held in the garden outside the main hall, and several workshops will be held throughout the day on anarchist politics.

There will also be food stalls cook up some tasty treats and a childcare corner to help make it possible for families to come along.

Anarchist Bookfairs began in London over 30 years ago and have since spread across the globe, including Australia’s shores with our comrades in Melbourne now planning their fourth annual event. Anarchist Bookfairs are a chance to find out about and discuss libertarian ideas, attend workshops and hear speeches on anarchist history and politics, discover new, local campaigns on wide range of issues, and of course, buy books.

The Sydney Anarchist Bookfair will take place on Saturday 22nd March, between 10.30am and 5pm, at the main hall of Addison Road Community Centre. We hope you can come along!
