Workshop description===Anarchism, Feminism, and War
Emma Goldman's lessons for today's anti-war movement

In 1917, after the USA made a historic decision to join World War 1 in
Europe, the famed anarchist-feminist Emma Goldman dropped everything she
was doing to organize against the war and against the draft. Her
passionate speeches and writings were able to rally together thousands at
a time in open opposition to the war, and her political agitation
eventually led to her deportation to Russia in 1919. But what were the
political, revolutionary ideals behind Goldman's anti-war organizing? What
did Goldman and the anarchist movement have to offer to the anti-war

This workshop will explore the anarchism of Emma Goldman, and her
critiques of war on the basis of class, feminism, and free expression.
More importantly, what lessons can be drawn for anti-war organizing today?
In the context of current wars to 'liberate women', Block the Empire will
draw from Emma Goldman and beyond to build a strong pro-feminist,
anti-racist, and anti-authoritarian movement against all wars, both at
home and abroad. Each workshop will be followed by an open discussion.

This workshop will be facilitated by Louise-Caroline Bergeron and Aaron
Lakoff of Block the Empire Montreal (BLEM). BLEM is an anti-capitalist,
anti-war group which began in the lead up to the war in Iraq in 2003. BLEM
organizes direct actions, popular education, and artistic
interventions in opposition to war and occupation from Afghanistan to
Turle Island.
