History for Lunch: talk on anarchism in New Zealand (Wednesday 21 August)
This Wednesday (August 21) I will be talking about the colourful radicals of the early labour movement in Wellington – anarchists and the Industrial Workers of the World. As well as organising one of New Zealand’s first anarchist collectives, Philip Josephs and members of the IWW were active in Wellington's working-class counter culture and the Great Strike of 1913. This talks aims to highlight the role of literature, mass meetings and international influences on these events.
At the Wellington Public Library, 12.30pm.
