At the beginning of the class we have talked about Summerhill an Anarchist and british boarding school based on the principles of educating children in complete freedom. The fees of this school are really expensive: from £8,568 to £14,889 per year, depending on the level.
After this introduction we started to learn the last point of the unit.
Engels and Marx considered that all the workers of the world had fight together against the capitalism, so the International Workingmen's Association (also called IWA).
This association was an intetnational organization created in London in 1864 to coordinate all the workers' efforts against capitalism. The first international included Marxists, Anarchists and Trade unionists. The slogan of this association was " Workers of the world, unite! ".
Currently, there is a famous graffiti with this slogan in London, crated by the famous artist Banksy.
Banksy is an England-based graffiti artist, political activist and film director whose identity is not proven. His satirical street art and subversive epigrams combine dark humour with graffiti executed in a distinctive stenciling technique.
Then we have talked about the 2nd international. The 2nd international was created in 1879. It only included Marxists, and they created the workers' anthem (L'Internationale), the 1st of May became the Labour Day and also they created a campaign for 8 woriking hours.
Some of them wanted to make revolution to reachpower and others wanted to participate in the elections, so for that they didn't have coordination and The Second International dissolved during the First World War.
