Jura is hosting a special talk on "Anarchist workplace organising in Aotearoa New Zealand". Simon is a unionist and anarchist organiser from across the Tasman. He will talk about his experiences in a number of successful worker-run organising campaigns:
- Supersize My Pay youth rates campaign
- Warehouse - organising a retail chain for the first time in 20 years
- Pak n Save - organising workers in a company owned by a right wing libertarian think tank
Discussion will follow around the questions of being an anarchist and an organiser; organising with, without and despite trade unions; and how will workers build a revolutionary movement to save the planet.
> Anarchist workplace organising in Aotearoa New Zealand, talk and discussion, 6pm, Thurs 29th April at Jura.

Also on Thursday 29th, Juracoustic will be on after the talk. This month will feature music from Stono Caves (http://myspace.com/stonosolo) and other acoustic artists of her choosing. As usual, there will be vegan food and some drinks by donation. If you'd like to play as well, then come along and just play! If you'd like to play but can't come along, just send us an email and maybe we can work something out for next month. This month there are also lucky door prizes!
