Anarchy, Freedom, Constitutionalism - Red and Black Forum with Dr Alex Prichard

Saturday, April 16, 2016 -
2:00pm to 4:30pm

 

How do you know when you're free? Anarchists have usually said you're free to the extent that you're not dominated. But what secures this non-dominated state? Do we need to be empowered, or is something else needed?

Alex Prichard (from Exeter University in the UK) will introduce his current research project, conducted with Ruth Kinna, on this subject. What they argue is that anarchists need to think more clearly about constitutional politics, that is rules, regulations, institutions and the divisions of powers. These are taboo subjects at the moment across large parts of the movement, but routinely adopted in general assemblies, camp rules, plural decision making arrangements and so on. They argue that the 19th century republican tradition (rather than Trump and the GOP!), and the classical anarchists that developed it, give us plenty to think about that can help here.

Come along and get involved in the discussion!

Red and Black Forum: Anarchism and postcolonialism: Insights from the Philippine 'anarchipelago'

Sunday, September 27, 2015 -
2:00pm to 4:00pm

Frantz Fanon predicted that if national liberation movements win independence but go no further than assuming the reins of the nation-state – an apparatus of rule inherited from Europe – then the resulting regimes will be no less despotic than the departed colonial masters. Before Fanon, too, there was the irrepressible Russian anarchist, Mikhail Bakunin, who argued, contra Karl Marx, that a post-revolutionary society that failed to do away with the state would only perpetuate tyrannies that Marx and his followers claimed to oppose. The twentieth century proved both Bakunin and Fanon right, thereby prompting new explorations into what revolution without the state might mean.

This talk will offer a glimpse into one such exploration in the Philippines – a unique case, though very much in line with anarchistic resurgences everywhere – while also highlighting the complementarities between anarchist and postcolonialist perspectives. 

The talk will be given by Marco, an anarchist from Perth who has spent quite a bit of time with anarchists in Manila.

Followed by discussion. All welcome. Free.

Anarcha-feminist reading/discussion group

Over the last few months, a group of people from the Jura community have organised a series of readings and discussions in an attempt to develop our (pro)feminist politics. We have focussed in particular on readings on practical ways of improving our (particularly men's) behaviours and practices of consent, and on community accountability processes. After these meetings, we decided that our discussion of transformative justice would be enriched by developing our feminist politics more broadly. As an attempt to begin that process, we have chosen to read the book Quiet Rumours: An Anarcha-Feminist Reader. We are starting with the prefaces and the first chapter. If you are a like-minded person and would like to participate in this reading/discussion group, please get in touch via email or personal message. People of all genders and sexualities are welcome and we would like this to be a safe space. (In the interests of honest disclosure, we should mention that the majority of us who have been participating so far identify as hetero cis men, with a smaller number identifying as wom*n). Also, please note that this is not an open public ‘forum’ as such, but rather a smaller group with a commitment to ongoing discussion and development. Participants are all committed to turning up regularly (about monthly) and doing the readings.

Quiet Rumours is available at Jura for $22, or online.
