We had a great turnout for tonight’s first meeting of Anarchist Theory by Anarchist Women. We read outloud from A Thousand Rioters, Selected Writings bofLucy Parsons. We read and discussed her essays, The Principles of Anarchism and Crime and Criminals.
For next week’s class we decided to read Lucy Parsons‘ essay To Tramps and Voltairine de Cleyre’s essay Direct Action.
Both of these essays are available online, and there are hard copies of Direct Action 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.
