Wow great line up. To hear Peter Cresswell will be worth the price of admission alone :)

That's a pity it's the same weekend as the Radical Youth hui. Would have come if it wasn't for the clash because AOC showed their support for Radical Youth by turning up to the anti-G8 Carnival in 2005 ;)

"Places are limited so register early."

This part is a bit elitist isn't it? What happens if there was some young private property rights fanatic, lock 'em up and throw away the key, create liberty through huge tax cuts for the rich type kid who only sees about the conference the day before it starts and really really wants to come but is turned away.

Isn't that little bit unfair? Shouldn't AOC choose a venue bigger enough that any youth who wants to come can? Just concerned about the young right-wing kids who might be excluded. You see I'm quite a caring person.

They should come to the RY hui if they're turned away by AOC.

I can't speak for AOC Cameron, (being nearly 5 years too old to be a member), but I've never seen them turn away any budding young freedom lover.

Perhaps you guys could fuse with AOC...Anarchists on Campus? ACT Organising Communists?

Or even with the main party....Association of Communists and Trots?

Have a word with Omar and maybe see if you can organise something.

All the best for the New Year.

"AOC...Anarchists on Campus"

I do like :)

Glad to hear AOC won't be turning away any young private tyranny defenders. All the best for our respective youth meetings.
