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.
The Wingnut is a sober, all ages space.
