It’s a confusing time to be on the revolutionary left as everything that was once certain turns to smoke. Technology has overturned & remade what constitutes effective communication & the construction of networks. Quite how to organise is no longer clear and old reference points of 1917, 1936 or even 1968 no longer provide definitive models.
Drawing on some 30 years of experience on the revolutionary left in Ireland, the UK and North America with side trips to Chiapas, Gezi and beyond Andrew Flood will examine what worked, what might work no longer and outline some ideas of how we should organise in the future. Andrew’s presentation is based around direct experience in struggles and revolutionary organisation over that period with a focus on the experience of resisting the crisis and the revolts of 2011.
This talk was recoded at the meeting in Trondheim, Norway 21st June 2014 & Tromso, 24th June
