Topic: The Working Class Anarchist Tradition

Historians & Authors Tom Ward and Michael Ditmore will open up a discussion of:
“The Working Class Anarchist Tradition: How does it apply to Occupy?”

We will first explore some of the better known historical moments in this continuing tradition of radical social movements that have surfaced in various times and places: the Paris Commune of 1871; the I.W.W. and the Seattle General Strike of 1919; the Spanish Social Revolution of 1936-7; France’s nationwide general strike and the “movement of occupations” in 1968; and others.

The lessons learned—and the useful insights acquired—during these extraordinary moments will be reviewed in the light of Occupy Wall Street: the current popular movement against the old world’s capitalist governments. This discussion will be guided by a basic understanding: while working-class anarchism is the means, a worldwide co-operative commonwealth is the goal.
“The historical process is the Author of us all.”

All are invited to join in this discussion.


Location: Bradley Manning Plaza (formerly Justin Herman Plaza), conveniently located near the Embarcadero BART Station and the Ferry Building.

We will have seating, blankets to keep you warm, amplified sound, and peacekeepers to keep it alcohol, interruption, & smoke-free.
