Two London events with John Holloway in October. Please publicise widely:
ANARCHIST BOOKFAIR/MUTE MAGAZINE DISCUSSION, 4-6pm, Saturday 24th October,
Capitalism’s Present Crisis - How Will It End?
The capitalist system is facing years of crisis and social instability. This
raises two questions:
1) what caused the crisis? Was it ‘greedy bankers’, the natural tendencies of
the capitalist system, or the resistance of the working class?
2) how will the crisis end? Will it be with more state regulation, more cuts
in living standards or with working class revolution?
The Anarchist Bookfair and Mute magazine have invited three speakers
to debate these issues:
Paul Mason, a presenter on BBC’s Newsnight, and author of
Meltdown: The End of the Age of Greed
John Holloway, author of Change The World Without Taking Power
and Crack Capitalism (forthcoming). NB See below for further John
William Dixon, Mute magazine contributor.
The discussion will take place at the Skeel Lecture Theatre, Anarchist
Bookfair, Queen Mary & Westfield college, Mile End Road, London E1, Mile End

other talks, go to: http://www.anarchistbookfair.org
CRACK CAPITALISM - A DISCUSSION WITH JOHN HOLLOWAY 7-9pm, Monday 26th October, London
At the height of the anti-capitalist movement, John Holloway’s book Change The World without Taking Power provoked an
international debate*. Eight years later, after the failure of the wars in Iraq
and Afghanistan, combined with the failure of the capitalist economy,
anti-capitalism is back on the agenda.
John Holloway will introduce his forthcoming book, Crack Capitalism,
followed by a discussion on how we can change the world without repeating the
tragedies of twentieth century socialism.
Come and join the debate.
*To read the debate around the book Change The World Without Taking
Power, go to:
Venue: The Octagon Room*, Queen's Building, Queen Mary & Westfield
College, Mile End Road, London E1, Mile End Tube. (The event will be followed by a social at the Half Moon pub, 213-233 Mile End
Road, London E1)
Supported by Mute Magazine and the Queen Mary & Westfield School of
Business and Management
