An online discussion about Bellamy Fitzpatrick’s essay An Invitation to Desertion, hosted by FORGED BOOKS, Manchester’s anarchist reading group.
Conversation will take place on the jitsi platform here: https://8X8.vc/forged/books
We recommend the Chromium browser on desktop: https://download-chromium.appspot.com/ Chrome should also work. We couldn’t get Firefox to work with Jitsi. If you don’t have Chromium or Chrome and don’t want to install a new browser you can use one of Jitsi’s apps here: https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet-electron/releases/tag/v2.0.2 - you will need to change ‘Server URL’ in settings to https://8x8.vc/ and join the room /forged/books For mobile devices try: https://jitsi.org/downloads/ - you will need to change ‘Server URL’ in settings to https://8X8.vc/ and join the room /forged/books In our test session, the mobile apps kept losing their connection. If you’re really stuck, you could try joining the meeting room /forged/books with the desktop and mobile apps listed here: https://download.8X8.vc/
