Anarchism, Punk, Cultures of Resistance & that ‘lifestyle’ V ‘social anarchism' debate The talk will examine the supposed gulf between ‘lifestyle’ and ‘social’ anarchisms, with a particular focus on DIY punk’s contested siting within this false dichotomy. It will consider several strands of punk engaged with anarchism – especially contemporary manifestations. - More details at the Facebook event

Defeating Fracking - setting limits to growth? Climate change has reached a point where scientists are now saying that direct actions against resource extraction is the only strategy likely to prevent ecological collapse and ensure our environment’s survival. This panel considers what needs to be done and who is going to do it. There will be speakers from the anti-Fracking movement and the Workers Solidarity Movement’s Paul Bowman will look at alternatives to the politics of "jobs and growth", including those of "degrowth" and other anti-productivist movements.

No Bosses - No Landlords: Radical roots - workers co-op project Do you want to work without bosses? Do you want to live without landlords? Come to this panel to find out how! Speakers: - ‘Radical Routes’ is a United Kingdom-based co-operative federation that provides support to housing and worker co-operatives as well as social centres in the form of mutual aid.

My Life in Activism : Women speak We host a panel of women activists who inform us about how they became involved in the movement, what drew them into this life of campaigning for social justice, rights and attempting to change the world in which we live. They inform us of how they remain motivated, inspired and sustained in active political life. More details & RSVP at the Facebook event

A year of class war - the British Miners Strike of 1984 Dave Douglass will talk about his experiences of 1984 - the year the British mines almost defeated Thatcher. "That fight in 84-85 involved the whole community, it was not only about unions. It was partly about unions but it was about an industry, it was about a way of life. The miners were almost an ethnicity, with father to son for hundreds and hundreds of years in the same miner family. And we had a very strong revolutionary and radical tradition. So, all of the politics of power, fuel power was about political power and not just about energy. It was about more than that. It was about "Who rules ?"" RSVP and get more details at the Facebook event for this meeting

Intersectionalisty, Micropolitics and the left workshop After a short introduction to the basic concepts we will be having facilitated small workshops to look at a range of issues and methodologies and their usefulness to creating a new left. More details TBA

A Dublin Solidarity Network - What are the possibilities? In recent years a form of organising around economic issues based on picking small but winnable fights, has had a certain success in a number of places around the world. From the US's Seattle Solidarity Network, to Spain's Mortgage Holders Platform, a number of models exist. This talk is to introduce the work and methods of these groups and ask the open question of whether we could build something similar in Dublin. RSVP & invite your friends on the Facebook event
