On Sept 22, at 5pm, come talk with members of the anarchist collective about the complexities of multi-front wars in the twenty first century.
We’re happy to announce that, with a little reshuffling, we’ve added two new events to our Fall 2019 calendar. On Sept 22 (note: a Sunday), at 5pm, we’ll be having a guest facilitation by a member of the Crimethinc Ex-Workers Collective, on three way fights. Also this coming Tuesday, there will be a film on the Ferguson uprising (see post below for details).
On Tues Sept 17, join us for a special screening of Touch the Sky, a newly-released partisan study on the Ferguson rebellion, made by folks from St. Louis. A trailer is here. The filmmakers will introduce their work, and a Q & A / discussion will follow afterwards. For the location, email the address listed on the flier.
On Tuesday September 10, 2019, at 7pm, we will meet again at the lovely Read/Write library in Humboldt Park, to discuss Cleveland-based anarchist theorist Tom Nomad’s piece “What is Policing?”. The new distro, Leveller.info has been kind enough to lay out a zine especially for the occasion. You can find it here.
Building the Commune will meet this Tuesday, Sept. 3 at the Read/Write Library in Humboldt Park (914 N California) at 7pm. The ‘reading’ is actually the first few episodes of the podcast, called “It Could Happen Here”.
See you then!
