Lifestyle politics: part of the solution... or part of the problem?

Is "ethical consumerism" just capitalism with a friendly face?

Are alternative lifestyles and identity politics just another brake on real revolutionary change?

Can alternative cultures of resistance pose any genuine threat to capitalism or are they just doomed to be easily isolated subcultural ghettos?

A free political discussion based on the texts "Give up lifestylism" and "In defence of lifestyle politics" from shift magazine (www.shiftmag.co.uk). Copies of the short articles and shift magazine are available at Kebele social centre. Reading the articles before coming to the discussion is useful but not essential. For collective learning and liberation. Drinks and snacks available for donations.
