Beyond Resistance: An Introduction to Class Struggle Anarchism and Revolutionary Organization

Thursday, March 25, 7pm

Lucy Parsons Center
549 Columbus Ave.
Boston, MA
(617) 267-6272

In the wake of the anti-capitalist struggles of recent years the growing anarchist movement in North America continues to be faced with a number of challenges. Despite our ability to make media
headlines, there remains a pressing need to move beyond the spectacular images of black masks and barricades and begin to build real influence for anarchism in the broader social movements of the
working class.

Whether it be struggles in the workplace, for tenants rights, against poverty, around welfare reform, abortion access, against the prison industrial complex, for immigrants rights, or in
confronting fascism, we believe in the need to practically apply our politics to the everyday struggles that affect our class.

We see the revolutionary process as one that is continually developing, and feel that a structured class struggle anarchism has an important role to play in the future upheavals against the
ruling classes of this world. But we cannot rely on abstract theory or black-clad media spectacles to get there. We need to organize now!

Members of the Northeastern Federation of Anarcho-Communists (NEFAC) will discuss the political tradition and evolution of revolutionary
anarcho-communism, from the 1870s to present, with a particular focus on specific organizational forms, revolutionary praxis, and strategies for developing broader influence in the class struggles of today and tomorrow.

Isn't this the same day as Bush coming to town? While the rest of us on the left are actually doing something you will be theorizing from your armchairs at your bookstore. Is your magazine not enough? I bet you plan to protest against the Democrats when they come to town but not against Bush who is the greatest danger this country has ever faced. Stay in your armchair and we'll get Bush out of office and build a working-class political party.

Uh, you know, the Lucy Parsons Center is a fairly short walk from the Park Plaza Hotel. There is always the option of doing both. Kinda novel concept, I know.

The problem with most socialists is they have a rigid, one-dimensional mind and aren't so good with the range of thought required to take on multiple tasks at once. It is a well known fact that you will never see a socialist chew bubble gum and walk at the same time.

Anarchists, on the other hand, don't seem to have the same problem. Our forms of organization are both fluid and decentralized, thereby allowing us to maximize our efforts simultaneously on multiple fronts. This is why we are treated as something of a threat by the powers that be, and you are treated like a bad joke.
Talk Rescheduled to 3/26

This talk has been pushed back to Friday, March 26 (still at LPC), so now there is no conflict with Bush's fundraising dinner, which everyone should go to and make some noise at...
