Alarm youth anarchist collective meeting.

Alarm is an anarchist youth organization. It was created as a means for young people – workers, and students alike – to effectively organize against capitalism and the state, and to help spread revolutionary ideas throughout Australia.

Alarm is having a meeting at Victoria Park (Next to Broadway and Sydney Uni) on the 27th of January to help build the collective and work towards social change.

We will be meeting at 12pm, and will be marked by a Red and Black flag.

All welcome.

Showing at Black Rose this Sunday is “The Take”, a 2004 documentary about an occupied factory in Argentina.

Sunday January 27
6.30 pm
22 Enmore Rd, Newtown

To steal a desription from the film’s official website: “In suburban Buenos Aires, thirty unemployed auto-parts workers walk into their idle factory, roll out sleeping mats and refuse to leave.

All they want is to re-start the silent machines. But this simple act – The Take – has the power to turn the globalization debate on its head.

The story of the workers’ struggle is set against the dramatic backdrop of a crucial presidential election in Argentina, in which the architect of the economic collapse, Carlos Menem, is the front-runner. His cronies, the former owners, are circling: if he wins, they’ll take back the companies that the movement has worked so hard to revive.

Armed only with slingshots and an abiding faith in shop-floor democracy, the workers face off against the bosses, bankers and a whole system that sees their beloved factories as nothing more than scrap metal for sale.

With The Take, director Avi Lewis, one of Canada’s most outspoken journalists, and writer Naomi Klein, author of the international bestseller No Logo, champion a radical economic manifesto for the 21st century. But what shines through in the film is the simple drama of workers’ lives and their struggle: the demand for dignity and the searing injustice of dignity denied.”
