Up the Anti is a one day conference for reflection, discussion and debate on how we lay claim to the future that we want and deserve. It will host an eclectic mix of sessions, ranging from in-depth seminars and debates to participatory, facilitated discussions and workshops. There are many questions we need to ask, including:
Is there an alternative to capitalism?
What might it look like?
How do we win popular support for a new radical project?
What can we learn from the social struggles and new movements in Europe?
And how do we overcome divisions on the left and radical movements?
We called the event ‘Up the Anti’ because we all agree that we need to build a bigger movement against social oppression and capitalism. But we are not just against things, we also want to reclaim the future from those in power who seem intent on dragging us towards austerity, growing social inequality and environmental destruction.
