Event description
150 years after the Paris Commune, this webinar will explore its relevance for contemporary communalism and radical politics.

About this event

The Paris Commune of 1871 was the biggest urban uprising and experience of self-organization of modern history. For those engaged in social and political change, this historic experience stands as the first example of the exercise of social and political power by the working class and underclass. To this day, it remains a vibrant and inspiring example of direct democracy and women emancipation all over the world. 

Socialists, communists, anarchists and social ecologists all look to this 72-day social revolution for lessons — often conflicting — in the understanding and application of approaches to hierarchy, State power, and exploitation. Most importantly the Paris Commune is an extraordinary example of a grassroots democratic re-organisation of society and the creation of new institutions of citizen power and radical social transformations. 

This webinar organized by the Transnational Institute of Social Ecology (TRISE) brings together notable speakers who will articulate the lessons from the past and the opportunities today to move communities into a period of fundamental change. Such analysis and insights hopefully will help our societies to avoid going back to “business as usual” after the Covid-19 crisis and create new paths toward collective emancipation.
