All the world that's owned by idle drones is ours and ours alone. We have laid the wide foundations, built it skyward stone by stone. It is ours, not to slave in, but to master and to own.

As the final leg of a national speaking tour, the Otago Socialist Society are delighted to welcome Brendan from the Canberra branch of the Anarcho Syndicalist Federation-International Workers Association (ASF-IWA) to give our November lecture.

Brendan will be speaking on the history and experience of factory occupations in Australia, and giving an introduction to anarchist syndicalism as an industrial and political strategy to transform society.

This year has presented an increase in strike action, particularly in the public sector. The recent militancy of nurses, teachers, and other public sector workers alongside the steady simmering of the private sector particularly from first and unite Union, provides a backdrop for our conversation with Brendan.

The vast majority of socialism presumes the existence of an organised, powerful workers' movement - and as such this period of renewed strike activity and working class confidence marks a moment of interest for the recomposition of just such a movement.
