The CAN political discussion nights are intended for anarchists to
debate different tendancies within anarchism; to help foster more

tactics, theory and practice to help build a more cohesive anarchist
movement.

[November 14th 6:30-8:30 pm at Columbia College (624 s. Michigan
Room # 1408 Discussion Topic "Gender and Sexuality: Beyond the

Power" and the SDS, Weathermen and Prarie Fire Organization

around race and class differ from the largely Maoist New Left of the
60's. The Douglass Branch is wheelchair accessible.]

CAN Anarchist Reading Group

CAN is sponsoring this monthly book discussion group to encourage
critical thinking and revolutionary self-education. Through reading

practice.
