Autonomy Now is a nonsectarian, zero budget, DIY project. We organise wide-ranging talks and events in London of interest to anarchists, anarcho-curious and their friends.
We intend to hold a regular ongoing talks series in Housmans Bookshop next to King’s Cross St. Pancras station, LARC, MayDay Rooms and elsewhere.
We started this project due to the ending of the London Anarchist Bookfair and the organisers of the implicitly anarchist Antiuniversity considering shutting down their project.
We also believe there is a need for anarchist events throughout the year.
Why Autonomy Now?
The title came from lifelong anarchist Jonangus Mackay. Colin Ward wanted Anarchy magazine to be called Autonomy, however, the editorial committee thought otherwise. Now comes from George Woodcock’s influential anarchist periodical of the same name.
