Ottawa, Anarchists Get Organized

We will discuss the question, "What does a successful organization and/or movement look like?" We will address theoretical considerations while also looking at their application to the groups we are personally involved with. We will be discussing vision, strategy, and the tools required for us to be effective in radical community organizing.

The Anarchist Discussion Group meets every second Sunday afternoon. We are local Ottawa activists and community members who share an anti-authoritarian and anti-capitalist viewpoint. We are involved in diverse struggles and believe in the importance of maintaining a link between theory and practice. Discussions are based on readings,presentations or short films. If there are readings, they are optional and will be summarized at the beginning of the discussion.
