Meeting - Revue Internationale pour la Communisation (2003–2008)

'Meeting' was a journal and website focused on communisation, whose driving-force was the French group 'Theorie Communiste' and its followers. One of the outcomes of the work of 'Meeting' was the emergence of the English-language group/journal 'Endnotes'. The texts contained here are mostly in French, with some in English, and, to the best of our knowledge, contain most, if not all, of their output.

Love of Labour? Love of Labour Lost… - Gilles Dauvé and Karl Nesic

Dauvé and Nesic’s historical account challenges the thesis that the self-identification of the proletarian as producer has been the decisive cause of its defeats. When, they ask, did the workers actually try to shoulder economic growth? When did they ever compete with bourgeois owners or modern directors for the management of the companies? Workers’ movements don’t boil down to an affirmation of labour. And if the “being” of the proletariat theorised by Marx is not just a metaphysics, its content is independent of the forms taken by capitalist domination.

We are not "anti" - Bernard Lyon
