"We decided to begin each meeting by singing the official RAAN
themesong, but then we realized that it was a freestyle." - Anonymous
Welcome to the second installment of Praxis, the journal of the Red &
Anarchist Action Network (RAAN). Like our first issue, this
publication has been cooperatively put together by members of the
network who felt like they had something to contribute to the
development of our practical theory. As the name of the journal
suggests, all essays, interviews, and opinions found here are
dedicated to improving our understanding of the network's real-world
functions and activity. This concentration is necessary in order for us
to remove the concept of communist-anarchist unity, and of RAAN
itself, from the realm of abstract theory.

We have chosen to title this issue "communists without apology,
anarchists without compromise", which has recently become
something of a slogan in the network. In this issue, members of
RAAN will present ideas on the relationship of radicals to the media
and liberal organizations, the culture of action that has been forming
within the network, and the experiences of those who have been
organizing it in their communities.

It is worth noting that since the publication of Praxis #1, RAAN has
grown significantly. The birth of network-affiliated groups in several
cities and the rapid production of RAAN Network News, a new
periodical covering the activities of our organization, (now on its
second issue) are indicative of our network's maturing culture, a
culture that we hope you will be able to recognize and appreciate
within the following pages.


- The Praxis #2 Editorial Circle*

*As a formal grouping, there is actually no Praxis "Editorial Circle" in
existence. Instead, we use this as a blanket term inclusive to all those
who have contributed to, proofread, put together, and distributed the
publication that you now hold in your hands.
