It won't be dropping out of the sky, but Our Culture,
Our Resistance: People of Color Speak Out on Anarchism,
Race, Class and Gender, the first book relating ideas
of the autonomous people of color movement, is set for
public release on September 11, 2004.
Over the last decade, demonstrations by Third World
people against globalization, neoliberalism and
related issues have captured the imagination of the
world. From the militancy of street protest to the
fight for autonomy advocated by the Ejercitio
Zapatista de Liberacion Nacional (EZLN, also known as
the Zapatistas), radical politics led by people of
color is quickly evolving.

A small but growing movement of people of color is
developing a new conversation that advocates
anti-authoritarianism and anarchism as solutions to
our collective struggle. Such a movement is largely
led by youth, and such advocacy is a departure from
the old-guard politics espoused by revolutionaries of
color. Many of these organizers met in October 2003 in
Detroit for the first Anarchist People of Color
conference. Others continue to organize, agitate and
act to find bottom-up answers to the freedom
movement's most perplexing questions.

Over the last three years, there has been a great deal
of interest in the voices of people of color in the
anarchist movement, as well as its various tendencies.
Although a few voices receive much interest, this
movement is diverse, at times contentious and among
the most vibrant tendencies.

Our Culture, Our Resistance seeks to bring together
those diverse ideas in a unique way and in a unique
format. Rather than wrangling with publishers (the
most prominent one of which wanted pieces rewritten),
Our Culture, Our Resistance will be kicked to the
streets in an easy-to-print and mass copy format for
everyone to be their own distributor. Putting your own
copies out, selling them, or just setting them at the
barber shop and everywhere else is highly encouraged!
Please keep in mind that the writers are not being
paid for their words, so sell the book fairly; the
articles themselves are still the property of the
authors.

Mark your calendars! Our Culture, Our Resistance will
be available in printable PDF format at
www.illegalvoices.org on September 11, 2004.
