Open meeting in Gothenburg

In the autumn of 2006 we published the eigth issue of riff-raff. In connection with the release we held an open meeting simultaneously with the conference Vår makt (‘Our power’) in Gothenburg at the end of October. We had invited Roland Simon from Théorie Communiste to introduce the theory of his group as a means for introducing the issue, with the better part devoted to these theories.

During the meeting he spoke about the workers’ movement, its empowerment within capitalist society and mentioned the revolutionary defeats during the twentieth century. Throughout the treatment of these subjects he intertwined his view of the history of class struggle up until today and put focus on how the conditions for proletarian struggle have changed.

In order to illuminate the theoretical points of Théorie Communiste, the anti-CPE movement in France (spring 2006) was discussed. This illustrated the nature of the current class stuggle dynamic and how this dynamic carries the possibilities for producing a communisation movement which can go beyond the everyday character of class struggle.

The anti-CPE movement had been brought up earlier the same day, in a spontaneous speech. Both were recorded and are to be downloaded below in mp3 format.
