The division of society into two main classes, the ruling class and the working class, has always been fundamental to an anarchist analysis of capitalism. However, this basic division is now considered to be too simplistic and many now argue that there are other divisions in society that are more relevant. This meeting will consider what class struggle anarchists mean by class and why we think it is still a fundamental concept in understanding how society works and for building a movement for a revolution. It will also consider how the concept needs to be up-dated to fit with global capitalism today and not be used to mask other crucial societal divisions such as gender and race.
The Rebel City Collective is a group of class struggle anarchists in London whose aim is to spread anarchist ideas and practices more widely. We produce a paper called Rebel City which is now in its 8th edition. Angry workers are a group organising around workplaces in West London in a joint campaign with IWW.
