Anarchism in the 21st Century
Monday, October 16, 2017
7:00 PM, Highsmith Grotto

From the airport blockades opposing the Muslim ban to the anti-fascists who fought in Charlottesville, anarchists have been at the forefront of nearly all of the protests and social movements that have broken out across the United States over the past year.

What is anarchism? Is it a radical form of democracy, or libertarianism, or communism, or is it something else entirely? What forms does it take outside the context of street protests? And why is it coming back into the spotlight around the world?

Two longtime authors and activists will discuss the basic tenets of anarchism, review its contemporary history, and answer any questions you might have. Join us for a lively discussion.

Presented by members of CrimethInc.
