This week there is a our regular labour history discussion, women and non-binary folk night, and spanish classes.
The failure of the Shearer’s strike and the development of labourist, anarchist, reformist and socialist politics in Australia (1880s – 1900). This was the key moment. It was the military crushing of the strike that lead labour to form Labor. In many ways, this is what lead to what Australia is now. It is also what ‘Waltzing Matilda’ is about.
– Recomposing labour after the failure of free labour.
– Slavery and slavery in Australia.
Get the basics of Spanish and something else in a relaxed environment. All levels are welcome but we will start from the very basics. We will discuss culture too. All with a focus on Latin America. Planning on inviting compañeros from different countries to talk about their local Spanish and culture, including some food if feeling really inspired maybe?
Come and share what you know, your ideas to make it fun, your questions, thoughts, bring a friend, feel free to suggest topics in advance.
Every Saturday starting 17.30 until we get tired (i.e. 19.00 app).
