As the Tories team up with the anti-abortionist, anti-LGBT, authoritarian DUP, let us organise and persevere. How do we continue resisting the Right? And how do we capture the energy of Corbyn’s rise and turn it into something even better; something beyond elections and social welfare?

Join us for:
:::CATHARSIS::: We exorcise the neofascist Right through art, drawing and storytelling. Join us to deface posters of Theresa May, Rupert Murdoch and Arlene Foster (oh you’ll know who she is soon enough) – materials provided. There will also be a drawing corner where you can share your visual interpretations of the lowest of British politics.
:::HEALING::: We will help you eco-map your life to reflect on your strengths, resources and political journey. At the end of the session you will know where you want to focus your efforts and what is important to you for the future.
:::ORGANISING::: Speak to representatives of exciting groups in London who are organising resistance and alternative-building to withdraw our collective support from exploitation and oppression. Speak to protesters and community organisers and find out how you can join, and how different groups can co-ordinate their efforts. We’ll be joined by Disabled People Against Cuts, Momentum, Radical Assembly, IOPS, Positive Money, and more.

SAFER SPACES
This event is run by friendly queers and lefties who are welcoming of people who are new to radical politics. We know everyone makes mistakes sometimes and says things that might unintentionally be offensive to others. We have also spent a lot of time learning and thinking about power and oppression and we will not tolerate any malicious, persistent or unchallenged racism, sexism, transphobia, classism, or any other oppressive behaviour. If you are called out, treat it as if someone says you have spinach in your teeth – they are doing you a favour and helping you to improve.

This event is part of the Antiuniversity Now festival 10-16 June 2017
See the full programme on www.antiuniversity.org

Anti-University Prefigurativism workshop 11th June 2016

prefigurativism_flyer_webCan we build a new society? Prefigurativism is to organise society and social relations in a way which embodies a future society that we would like to see.

There will be short presentations on prefigurativism, participatory economics, social ecology and the South African housing movement Abahlali baseMjondolo, followed by a wider discussion where participants will be encouraged to share their views and experiences.

This event is free, but please book a space since the venue is not huge: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/preview?eid=25039932111
