The Plebs League

INDEPENDENT WORKING CLASS EDUCATION

The Independent Working Class Education Project aims to learn the lessons of history to inform current class struggle.

Inspired by the Ruskin Students strike of 1909, we organise open informed discussions and look at how interesting presentations can be used in a variety of circumstances.

We offer materials and contacts and always try to operate in a non-sectarian way; we are not committed to any particular political current.

 

IWCE Project hopes to:

* Respect the role of the working class in making history, and in making the future 

* Seek to offer a diverse range of education materials and approaches for trade union and other working class and progressive movement groups.
