The show in 40 words: It’s TMI time with Cali & Emily! Prepare for a musical ride through the many stages of life and shades of love– requited, unrequited, gay, straight, queer, or, well, just “creative.” WARNING: Contains wonderfully, hilariously, poignantly, adult material.

The show is approximately 60-75 minutes long.

Anarcho-Rednecks Against Oppression is a new organization based in Central Virginia, and one of the first projects of the group is to begin tabling at gun shows.

Our goals are to introduce a more diy, class struggle, and anti-oppression perspective to the culture at gun shows, and create opportunities for folks who may have never been exposed to anarchist ideas to hear about them and pick up some relevant literature. We hope that instead of dismissing people who aren’t on the exact same page we are on, we can meet them on our common ground, and through conversation and literature help folks step away from reactionary and racist perspectives and more into being self-thinking individuals.

We aren’t the first anarchists to attempt to reach out in this way, some of our predecessors include the John Brown Gun Club in Kansas and Redneck Revolt in Denver. We would love to hear from anyone who has been involved in these groups, intervened with tea party types, has their own insights about gun shows, etc.

Some topics we are looking for relevant literature on:

Know Your Rights

Copwatch

Security Culture

Anti-Racism

Queerness

Guns (duh?)

DIY stuff that folks at gun shows might be into

If any anarchists or radicals have zines, pamphlets or literature for us to distribute that you can mail us for free to help the cause, titles to recommend, or documents to email us, we would really appreciate it. We hope to develop a lot of original literature over time, but it always helps to not have to reinvent the wheel.

You can mail items to: ARAO c/o Wingnut 2005 Barton Avenue Richmond, VA 23222

or email mokarnage @ gmail.com

 

Our first gunshow will be the C & E Gun Show in Richmond on August 23-24 so if you can, please get any materials to us before then.

“Anarchists know that a long period of education must precede any great fundamental change in society, hence they do not believe in vote begging, nor political campaigns, but rather in the development of self-thinking individuals.
We look away from government for relief, because we know that force (legalized) invades the personal liberty of man, seizes upon the natural elements and intervenes between man and natural laws; from this exercise of force through governments flows nearly all the misery, poverty, crime and confusion existing in society.” – Lucy Parsons – anarchist, labor organizer 1853-1942

“There is one common struggle against those who have appropriated the earth, the money, and the machines.” – Voltairine de Cleyre – anarchist, feminist 1866-1912
