We had a great turnout for tonight’s second meeting of Anarchist Theory by Anarchist Women. We read outloud from Volterine de Cleyre’s essay Direct Action and had discussion about the text and the labor movement.

For next week’s class we decided to read Emma Goldman‘s essays Prisons a Social Crime and Failure and Anarchism What it Really Stands For

Both of these essays are available online, and there are hard copies of both zines by Emma Goldman available at the Wingnut. Feel free to come by during Open Hours on Wednesday or Friday from 4 to 9pm to pick up a copy.

The Wingnut is located at 2005 Barton Avenue. Anarchist Theory by Anarchist Women is being held on Tuesday nights at 8:30pm.

Thats a total of roughly 104 pages, all in zine format, so the pages are just the little half fold ones.

For the first class on Tuesday November 29th at 8:30pm, please read A Thousand Rioters selected writings of Lucy Parsons. Since there will only be 4 meetings of the class, there will be 25-30 pages we will cover each meeting.

 

This class will take a look at anarchist theory written by anarchist women at the beginning of the 20th century. We will be selecting zines with essays from Emma Goldman, Lucy Parsons, and Voltairine de Cleyre.

The meetings for this class will be on Tuesdays at 8:30pm. The dates will be 11/29, 12/6, 12/13, and 12/20. Folks are welcome to come to all or any of the classes.

Richmond does not have a full fledged Free School, alt…hough this is something that folks at the Wingnut and others have been talking about for a while. After the success of our first class, Colonization and Decolonization, this Fall, we thought about wanting to find a way to approach anarchist theory that would be introductory and accessible.

We will be learning together, and folks interested in studying this topic will be deciding, together, how to make the meetings function. The class is free and open to all ages.

The texts will be available online for download, and if folks need help getting a copy we can make more copies at the Wingnut. *This will be coming soon*

Please get in touch if you plan to attend or have questions or concerns. wingnut_collective@yahoo.com or 804 303 5449

Just a teaser to get the word out that we are planning another Free School class for the end of November. This class will take a look at anarchist theory written by anarchist women at the beginning of the 20th century. We will be selecting zines with essays from Emma Goldman, Lucy Parsons, Voltairine de Cleyre and possibly others.

We have not yet set a day and time for this class. If you are interested in the subject matter, or have suggestions for essays to read or other anarchist women to find essays from, please get in touch. If we hear from people about what time works for them generally, we will do our best to suit schedules.
