What we do about it: food not bombs, copwatch, prisoner support, food not lawns, bike repair, radical lending library, public computer, radical zine collection, game nights, potlucks, movie nights, music/poetry/puppet performances, grocery and produce distribution, sobriety support, host and facilitate workshops, attending local city council and other meetings to speak out against bad plans and for good ones (recent examples include the privatization of Monroe park, shockoe stadium, and public $$$ going to Venture Richmond), organize and attend protests on a variety of political issues, critical mass bike rides, host speakers, trash cleanups, support fast food workers and others fighting for a living wage, free store clothing cabinets, little free library, free anarchist and radical literature distribution and more!

Anarchism is the revolutionary idea that no one is more qualified than you are to decide what your life will be!!!

“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
