We’re a study/action group meeting every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month at 6:30pm at LARC (62 Fieldgate Street) in Whitechapel. We’re examining genuine democratic alternatives to capitalism, such as libertarian socialism, communalism, social anarchism and participatory economics. As well as wanting a more just society we feel that it is impossible to tackle ecological issues while ignoring the social context that created them. For more information on what we believe, see here. We’ve also posted an interview with Murray Bookchin which gives a good summary of his personal vision of Social Ecology. Each week, we discuss articles or chapters from a book, plan for events and social activities, share snacks and carry on discussions in the pub afterwards.
The group has been running in its current form since April 2006. A list of texts we have read is available here, and provides links to pages on the individual texts.
