WHAT IS ANARCHISM? Teach-in and media briefing, Mon., Aug. 23, 7:30 pm
CONTACT: Eric, (917) 806-6452
Who: New York anarchists who are organizing against the Republican
National Convention
What: A teach-in and media briefing on anarchism and anarchists' role
in contemporary political organizing
When: Mon., Aug. 23, 7:30 pm
Where: St. Mark's Church, 131 E. 10th St. at Second Ave., Manhattan
With the Republican National Convention coming to town, anarchists are
once again at the forefront of organizing mass protests against the
deadly and destructive policies of a corrupt and brutal state. Monday
evening, Aug. 23, a collective of New York activists who are organizing
against the RNC will conduct a teach-in and media briefing on anarchism
and its role in today's mass political actions - against the World Trade
Organization, against the Iraq invasion, against racist and oppressive
policing.

Anarchists organizing? Isn't that an oxymoron? Actually, anarchists are
very interested in organizing - just not the way it's done by
governments, corporations, and religious institutions. We will discuss
how anarchist techniques of nonhierarchical, leaderless organizing are
transforming political activism, creating a new model for
community-based decision-making and a new vision of a better society
without the state. We will also take apart the many myths about
anarchists' strategies and tactics.

Speakers will include:

* Starhawk, author and veteran of progressive movements who is deeply
committed to bringing the techniques and creative power of spirituality
to political activism.

* David Graeber, professor of anthropology at Yale University.

* Others

Bring your questions and your open minds. This event is for journalists
as well as members of the public who want to know more.
