Working Class Anarchism versus Middle Class Identity Politics

The South Essex Heckler

A discussion with Lisa McKenzie & Martin Lux.  Saturday 1st June, 5-7pm

Venue: London Action Resource Centre (Main Hall), 62 Fieldgate Street, Whitechapel, London E1 1ES

An unprecedented political vacuum has appeared as the main parties disintegrate and implode. Anarchist attitudes and ideas should be gaining traction yet this is failing to materialise. Why? Could it be the abandonment of class politics? Or the prevalence of identity politics?

This event is part of the 2019 Anarchist Festival – full details of what’s going on can be seen here.

We’ve had a lot to say and write about this issue over the last few years, that’s why we’re flagging this event up. Hopefully, we’ll be able to attend and make some contribution to the discussion. In the meantime, we’re going to write a piece on this theme for the Thinking Out Loud section on this blog.
