At a recent rs21 meeting, speakers gave eye-witness accounts of insurgent movements in Bolivia, Hong Kong and Algeria, as well as highlighting the importance of international solidarity.
In more and more places, people are taking to the streets in massive numbers against state repression, imperialism and the hard right. It's vital that we learn about these movements to identify opportunities for solidarity and to draw implications for our own organising here in Britain. In the context of British imperialism, we also have to train our sights on the actions and interests of our own state. Speakers will discuss the anti-extradition movement in Hong Kong, the opposition to the imperialist coup in Bolivia and uprisings in Algeria, Iraq and Morocco.
East London rs21 held a meeting on the uprisings in Algeria, Sudan and Morocco, addressing the movements demanding change, the counter-revolutionary forces lining up against them, and the role of international solidarity.
The uprisings in Sudan and Algeria won victories unseen since 2011. What sparked them? What has made them so successful thus far? What is the balance of forces today? What has changed since 2011? What has been the role of women, anti-racism, unions and anti-capitalism? What international solidarity is needed? Two Algerian and two Sudanese activists will be on this Facebook livestream to answer these questions and more.
Supporters of the Algerian uprising will be gathering once again this Saturday (6 April) at 1pm, Marble Arch, London. Seth Uzman speaks to one of the volunteers and reports on the protests so far.
