LA Anarchist Bookfair Rejects Anarchist Publishing Project

  • Posted on: 23 October 2017
  • By: thecollective

We Los Angeles Anarchist Book Fair (LAABF) Collective members have decided not to accept your application to table and share our space at this year’s Book Fair. We have refunded your Paypal transfer of $150.00 for Little Black Cart (LBC).

Why, you may ask? First, we know that a physical fight broke out at the recent Seattle ABF over the publication of Atassa, and we wish to avoid a repetition of any such occurrence at our ABF. More importantly, however, giving a platform to ITS is completely unacceptable in our view, given its wanton violence against women, ordinary people, and humanity in general.

TOTW: what local project would you start, or do you miss?

What kind of project do you most wish were happening in your area?
I find myself missing free skools (or schools, whatever). I am not going to try to do it by myself, but if there were two or three other people who were into it, I would definitely participate.
I like free skools because one of them had long term consequences that are important to me; they deconstruct a significant cultural paradigm (mainstream education)--or at least, they can, and they can be so flexible and variable.
What project would make you happiest if it started in your area, and why?

Topic of the Week: What's Your Pending (or not) Marginal Project?

  • Posted on: 20 March 2017
  • By: thecollective

I just had an idea over the weekend that, had it been put into practice, would've freaked most anews readers right out. It would have been a fine project, perfectly reasonable, but given the context it would've signaled something entirely opposite from what it intended.
What's your most interesting project that you wish someone would do, or that you'd like to do, but don't have the right situation for? Are you working towards getting the right situation for it, or is it too daunting?

Exiled in Exarchia

The Exarchia district slouches up the Athenian hillsides, twenty minutes’ walk from Syntagma Square, seat of government in the heart of Athens. Occasionally it stirs, exploding in violence and protest at a variety of injustices: some new, others perennial. Exarchia is a political and artistic hub in a country asphyxiated by demands from distant politicians at the behest of banks.

Topic of the Week: Anarchists and Education

There are two ways to talk about education, one is using the word in good faith (as the variety of ways we learn and what we learn) and the other is to acknowledge the society around us and use the word to refer to how we're supposed to learn: through schools and experts, in pursuit of degrees that position us in reference to other people, etc.
