For the same reason we are against heterosexual marriage. ‘Wedlock is a padlock’ Laura Lee….or was it Emma Goldman? Who needs the state to consent to your relationship…………a lot of anarchists. For fuck sake – at least we had principles in the ’60′s.
Next time he visits Scotland he’s in for a big surprise….
I’m impressed with hammer-headed Manchester Anti-Capitalist site: Membership/fortnightly meetings – sense of energy, urgency, purposefulness, determination….lets get a move on it’s bad out there.
We need a group like this in every town and maybe the Teeside initiative will help but….more to the point – we need an organisation of this kind which can act nationally. The woolly headed muddle of the past – federations, incoherent politics, inability to act decisively, tailending trot demos,like flotsam and jetsam buffeted here and there but without purpose….
‘The only rational course is to leave the EU so elected governments regain the democratic power to decide matters on behalf of the people they serve’
Bob Crow in today’s Guardian. Anti-Europeanism is the last refuge of a scoundrel – ask Farage. I simply do not share the anti-Europeanism of the Left. Will we, as Comrade Crow suggests, be better off when our elected governments regain democratic control? Of course not. By appealing to the little Englander/Daily Mail/Blimps and suggesting all blame is laid at Brussels Crow sings from the same songsheet as UKIP. There’s enough xenophobic reaction around without the Left adding to it.(ducks for cover).The Left Unity site recently asked what a Left wing UKIP would look like. My answer – UKIP.
Another sound local group…….lets hope they hook up with the Teeside comrades
The Radical Independence Movement in Scotland seem to be gaining real support whereas in England neither lefts nor anarchists can come up with any strategy for change apart from same old same old. So could independence work in England. Suppose Scotland votes for independence then deprived of its Scots MPS its unlikely Labour will ever gain a majority again in England. So faced with the prospect of endless rule by a Tory/UKIP coalition what should people in our big Labour voting towns and cities do. Remembering the PEOPLES REPUBLIC OF SOUTH YORKSHIRE then should we not declare radical independence for Liverpool/Manchester/Tyneside and Teeside/Yorkshire……….maybe even inner London? And not just declare but get ready for dual power well before election night when the barricades go up.
