Anarchist Research Group Event: Anarchists like us! Communists like us!
Plan C is a unique organisation in the UK, one that sits at odds in both the Left and the traditional Anarchist scene. Though it draws its history from both Anarchist and Communist movements, Autonomist Marxist Feminism, New Left populist movements as well as anti-capitalist struggles, it has refused to be drawn into dogmatic and scholastic schisms that categorise the left, opting to put its energy into developing communities of care and resilience, and developing new alliances and forms of action through an ecology of movements.
In this talk, a founder member of Plan C LDN presents the history and formation of Plan C from its beginning in 2012, the fusion of various ideas within the post “anti-capitalist” movement of the early 2000’s that met the student movement of 2010, and the emergence of ideas like social strike, social reproduction, luxury communism, commons and forms of constituent power all the way to our current conjuncture.
