This talk will critically address contempory anarchist theory,
practice, strategy, and tactics... and offer some thoughts on
developing a more effective praxis for the anarchist movement in North
America.

Paul Finch has been involved with numerous strikes and anti-war
actions and has been involved in the anti-globalization movement,
participating in the street protests that accompanied the 2001 Summit
of the Americas in Quebec City. He is also a founding member of the
Northwest Anarchist Federation, and currently a rank and file worker
and belong to the BC Government and Service Employee's Union [BCGEU
Local 1201], where he is both a shop steward at his worksite, and a
member of the executive for the 4500-person strong BCGEU 1201 Local.

During the recent BC Teacher's Federation strike against the
government, he helped organize wildcat pickets throughout the city,
with NAF targeting and picketing down a specific area. His workplace,
like most unionized public and private workplaces in Victoria, went
out on wildcat strike.

As mentioned, Aragorn! will also be speaking with Paul Finch at the
Montpelier event. Aragorn! is a member of the "Anarchy: A Journal of
Desire Armed" magazine collective, contributes to "Green Anarchy,"
"Maximum Rock 'n' Roll," and "Slingshot" magazines, and represents a
critical anarchist perspective. His presentation will incorporate
criticism, an indigenous anarchist perspective, and discussion of the
work of John Moore, specifically the idea of second-wave anarchy.
