The Ultra-left Dog Days of Summer

August 6, 2010 at 10:08 pm (Uncategorized)

We’re at that odd part of the summer. Just over the half way point,  The back-to-school notices are springing up, but there’s still enough time to get some of the chores and projects finished.

 The summer started with a bang with the events of the G20 summit, but now, things have slowed down considerably (it doesn’t help that this has been a hot, dry summer). So, if you have nothing to do, here are a few things to look at:

Common Sense, the Scottish autonomist marxist journal published  between 1987 and 1999 is now available on-line. All 24 issues are downloadable as PDFs here.  The journal featured theorists like Werner Bonefeld, John Holloway, Ed emery, Toni Negri, and many more.

The Indian communist group Kamunist Kranti (A Ballad Against work etc) are blogging at Faridabad Majdoor Samachar. KK are a unique group, and those earlier booklets are still worth reading (probably archived at Libcom)

Michel Oliver has an article about The Bolshevik Left and Workers’ Power on the Internationalist Communist Tendency’s website (the former IBRP). It’s always a good idea to look back over origins and often to reconsider.

And for those who want to argue some more about the G20, the Socialist Party of Canada have a meeting at the Toronto Reference Library (on Yonge, just north of Bloor Street)  on August 14 from 2-4 to discuss and analyze those events.

Lastly, a little light relief for those of you who are fans of Karl Marx and Katy Perry.

Enjoy the summer.
