movement.

Will you join us on Thursday 11th November to consider if we can learn from the 1970s and turn round the current situation; turning losing into Winning Again? Will the emergence of political education and organisations of influence in the last 5 years just drift away?
Independent Working Class Education invites your contribution
May IWCE invite you to join us in the Zoom meeting (see Notes*)
on 11th November from 2.00 to just after 3.30? There will be
several short presentations and plenty of opportunities
to participate.
Thursday 11th November 2:00 pm UK
We're hoping to produce an outcome document, outlining "Lessons from the 70s to sustain the political education movement of the 2020s"
 
 
(*) TWO NOTES
Independent Working Class Education (IWCE) had planned to do a HYBRID with WCM Library in
Salford but realised that it's NOT YET SAFE to do this. Hopefully this will happen in the New Year.
Secondly, two months of significant illness has delayed the planning of this project.

What Can We Learn from the 70s

Share

What can today's Socialist Movement Learn from the 1970s?

THURSDAY June 24th 2:00-4pm

 

What is our strategy for the 2020s? Can we build a movement that matters?

 

Can we learn from the 1970s? This is not a Nostalgia Fest but an attempt to use our insights to organise for Socialism. The second session will be in September.

 There will be opportunities to participate, alongside contributions from Olivia Wyatt (Young

Historians Project), Max Farrar (BF), Jane Holgate (EBS), Dave Lyddon (ex Keele), Hilary 

Wainwright (Red Pepper), David Connolly (ILP), Lucy Delaney (TWT), Shaira Begum (EBS),

Rosemary (May Day Rooms), Kerrie McGiveron (WCML/Liverpool Uni)

 

 IWCE N began this project at Redhill/Durham Miners Gala a couple of years ago and this session will be followed by a couple of others. The idea is to encourage wide ranging critical but super friendly discussion of how to sharpen our political practice in the 2020s.

There will be two Panels teasing out what we can learn from the struggles of the 70s and what that means for today. There will be plenty of opportunity to contribute/comment; also, should you wish to write something for IWCE Website or Post Sixteen Educator, please get in touch.

Contributor Patrick Ainley has written a contribution on how we got to this point entitled Downhill All the Way. Please feel free to respond to Patrick at the event or on the email at the end of the piece.
