Stop conferencing, stop planning conferences, stop thinking about conferences. FFS! The time for action is now, in our communities from the ground up. In 50 days the first attacks of the 2012 Welfare Reform Act come into force and none more so than the bedroom atTAXs on our homes.
To channel energy into yet another conference that, unintentionally or not, excludes the vast majority of people who are going to be thrown into chaos is counter-productive. Even anti-authoritarian groups are getting in on the conference act and they don’t even have a date for theirs yet.
The attack is already at our doorsteps. We don’t need to be fucking off to conferences to be talked at. Think they’re vital for knowledge-sharing and skill-sharing? Do that in your community, in you local community centre. Share knowledge and skills with neighbours and friends, tenants and workers in your street, on your estate, down your road —not in some plush or gloomy suite in London, Birmingham, Liverpool or Manchester.
