The next Manchester Class Struggle Forum will host a discussion on Anarcho-Syndicalism.
What is anarcho-syndicalism? How do anarcho-syndicalist unions differ from existing workers’ organisations? Do anarcho-syndicalist strategies have any value in 21st Century Britain, or are they 80 years out of date and several countries out of place? Or are anarcho-syndicalist strategies the tool we need to fight back in a period of savage cuts and declining living standards?
The forum will be introduced by a speaker from Manchester Solfed, with open discussion to follow and an open literature table.
