(en) Canada, Ottawa, Failures of Autonomous Zones (TAZ) and Cultural Resistance - Nov 19

A discussion about Raves, outdoor festivals, street festivals and
counterculture. We will look at their potential as forms of cultural
resistance and ultimately at their failure to live up to that potential.
This discussion will focus mostly on how these events are expressions of
the TAZ, (Temporary Autonomous Zone) as defined by Hakim Bey, as well as
a look at why youth subcultures in general tend to be more willing to
accept anarchistic principles in their attempts to reject comodification.

The Anarchist Discussion Group meets every second Sunday afternoon. We are
local Ottawa activists and community members who share an
anti-authoritarian and anti-capitalist viewpoint. We are involved in
diverse struggles and believe in the importance of maintaining a link
between theory and practice. Discussions are based on readings,
presentations or short films. If there are readings, they are optional and
will be summarized at the beginning of the discussion.
