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.

F*CK MAY 68. FIGHT NOW! Red and Black Forum on Contemporary Athenian Anarchists

Sunday, August 24, 2014 -
2:00pm to 4:00pm

This talk will look at the contemporary Athenian anarchist and anti-authoritarian milieu and their on-the-ground struggles against capitalism, the state and the rise of fascism.

Presented by Nick – a Jura Collective member who recently completed a phd at Macquarie University, based on his research in Athens.

Nick will consider how militant protest actions act as expressions of collective grievance, desire for retaliation against police injustices and as manifestations of anarchist and anti-authoritarian praxis. He will also explore how varying shades of anarchic tendencies and ensuing ideological and practical disagreements are, for the most part, overcome in these often violent Athenian street-protests.

 

The talk will be followed by discussion.

2pm, Sunday 24 August at Jura.

 

Blockade the Block

Sunday, July 6, 2014 - 7:00am to Monday, July 7, 2014 - 11:00pm

Indigenous activists have called for support this Sunday and Monday to defend the Aboriginal Tent Embassy and The Block in Redfern.The Embassy is expecting an eviction attempt any time on July the 6th and 7th. It's a racist attack and a class war. It's part of the big push to remove poor and working class people from the inner city to make room for those with more money. Come down and show solidarity.

https://www.facebook.com/events/317862701709817/?ref=22

"On July 7th, the development of new housing is set to occur at the Block in Redfern. The bulldozers will attempt to roll in to erase centuries of Aboriginal occupation, and four decades of Aboriginal social housing. An Aboriginal Tent Embassy stands in their way, and mob are calling for our support. You can visit or stay at the Embassy at anytime, but a specific invitation has been made for your support on Sunday 6th and Monday 7th of July. Let’s resist the enclosure of the Block as another shopping mall, as another block of flats that people on low-incomes can’t afford to live in."

Please also note that we don't know what time the construction workers and cops will get there so it might be best to show up early. We can have a yarn and a cuppa until we have to blockade
