Read it and weep: the list of the BBC journalists taking home six figure salaries courtesy of the licence fee payer. Disgraced presenter Huw Edwards came top with £475k despite being off air for nine months of the year.

Britain's new Foreign Secretary, David Lammy, is on record calling Donald Trump "a racist KKK and Nazi sympathiser" and has refused to apologise. This is clearly going to be a problem, says Peter Harris.

Headlines earlier this year proclaimed that catching Covid may knock up to 6 points off your IQ. A new study punctures this claim: there was no decline in cognitive test scores after Covid infection.

The BBC has ?fact-checked? Labour's claim that a unit of power from a new solar or wind project is cheaper than the cost from a new gas generator and found it to be true. But it's false, says Paul Homewood.

Anarchism and the Chinese Revolution

category international | anti-war / imperialism | opinion/analysis author Friday September 05, 2008 17:35author by Andrew Report this post to the editors

A 60 mintue audio recording of a talk and discussion on the Chinese revolution and the Chinese anarchist movement.
Qui Jin
Qui Jin

It covers the period from the 1840's to the victory of the CCP in 1949.

The talk was recorded at a Dublin Workers Solidarity Movement meeting at the end of August, there is about 35 minutes of talk and then 25 minutes of questions, discussion and response.

Note as this is an m4a file if you put this on an iPod or similar device you should be able to see the images mentioned in the talk on your screen if I've set it up right! I'd appreciate feedback from anyone who tries this as to whether it worked (post a comment here). I'm working on a google video which brings together the audio and video as well which I'll link to in a comment when completed - that would be more accessible.

So I just checked myself and this did work. If you load the sound file onto a iPod (or iPhone) then as you play it the images on the screen will change to reflect whatever is being talked about at that moment. For the curious this was put together in Garage band (Mac OSX) and is simple enough to set up, you just drag the images onto the track where you want them to appear. However it doesn't appear to produce a youtube compatible output.

So I've been told elsewhere that the .m4a format this is recorded in does not play 'out of the box' on most windoze machines. So although that version is the best (as it includes the graphics) to make life simple I'm attaching an mp3 version. Again feedback on the technical issues of playing one or the other appreciated

(note to editors - you might like to consider upping the audio limit to 30mb from 20mb as this would allow 64bit sound recordings of an hour in duration in both these formats, I had to knock this done to 40bit to get it below the 20mb limit. The equiv. of an hour at 64bit would seem more intuitive as an upper limit)

Have listened to the mp3 talk on anarchism in China, and the comments on the distorting Mao-this/Mao-that historiography promoted by right- and left-leaning historians. There are many black holes in twentieth century chinese history. It is certain that millions suffered from malnutrition, starvation, warlordism, Kuomintang and Maoist depredations. The city people endured the brunt of deadly purges and urban warfare. The state marxist control of media since 1949 means that the contributions of anarchists, christians, dissident buddhists, nationalists and liberal cultural improvers to modern China will remain difficult to quantify. I hope the people of China will emerge from centuries of foreign-imposed violence and self-imposed chauvinist backwardness and may experience many decades of peace.
