Following our successful series of talks on political organisation over the summer, where we looked at series of communist political organisations (Kamunist Kranti in India, Potere Operario in Italy and finally at Big Flame in England), The Commune is hosting a series of discussion forums on revolutionary syndicalism.
The second meeting of this series is: Monday, November 29, 7pm: Revolutionary Syndicalism and Anarcho-Syndicalism, the Interwar European Experience. Like the other meetings in the syndicalism series, Monday’s will be held in The Artillery Arms, 102 Bunhill Row, London, EC1Y 8ND.
A member of The Commune will give a lead of to a discussion on revolutionary syndicalism and anarcho-syndicalism in Europe between 1914 and 1939. The high point of revolutionary syndicalism during this period was the Spanish revolution where workers seized control over the land and factories. However, in many other countries revolutionary syndicalists played a major role, from the FAUD in the German revolution to the USI in the Italian Biennio Rosso.
