ASB Amsterdam presents: Isaac Puente & Anarcho-Syndicalism

From new great page:

ASB Amsterdam presents: Isaac Puente & Anarcho-Syndicalism

When? Saturday 23 July, 15:00 – 17:00 Where? CREA, Turfdraagsterpad 17, Amsterdam

Isaac Puente (1896 – 1936) was one of the foremost theoreticians of anarchism and libertarian communism in Spain at the time of the Spanish Revolution. We will discuss his text "Libertarian Communism" ( ​libertarian-communism); it will be introduced by José Estevao, a member of the Anarcho-Syndicalist Union (ASB) in Amsterdam.

75 years after the beginning of the Spanish Revolution, in which anarcho-syndicalism played a significant role, we also want to ask ourselves the question what the relevance of anarcho-syndicalism can still be today. In the ASB we try to learn from and build on this tradition, but we would also like to discuss with newcomers. How do we struggle and build in the best way here in the Netherlands for a future without capitalism? And on which principles must such a future just society be based?

(Isaac Puente's text will be available in the form of a flyer during the event.)
