Belfast: Is neo-liberalism dead?

Date:

Working people continue to bear the brunt of the economic recession in terms on job cuts, poverty wages and house repossessions, while the rich and powerful in our society are bailed out again. This is state capitalism and comes under various forms from thatcherism to neo-liberalism.

The speaker will present a brief overview of neo-liberalism and how it affects working people and the environment. Is neo-liberalism just naked capitalism under a different name? Does increased state involvement in the economy signal the end of neo-liberalism, or is it just a temporary measure?

Guest speaker: Michael Reinsborough

The talk will take place on Wednesday 17th June at 7pm in the Belfast Unemployment Centre(beside John Hewitts bar), 45/47 Donegall Street in the city centre. Please press on the buzzer in the side entrance.

The ACDG aims to initially create monthly informal public discussions, to debate and analyse all areas of labour, revolutionary history and contemporary issues.

To encourage debate within the wider anarchist/libertarian movement on present areas of struggle. Action without theory is blind and often futile, but theory without action is ultimately sterile and no use to anyone.

To spread and articulate the vision of revolutionary anarchist communism.

We are open to speakers from other political and social organisations. If you have any ideas or suggestions for future meetings, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.
