Work Peoples College: Fall Classes
The Twin Cities Branch of the INDUSTRIAL WORKERS of the WORLD (IWW) is pleased
to announce the opening session of the WORK PEOPLES COLLEGE. The WORK PEOPLES
COLLEGE continues the legacy of working-class education for emancipation carried
out by the Duluth, MN IWW in the first part of the 20th Century.
The initial Fall class offering is "LESSONS OF THE SPANISH REVOLUTION":

Using texts, movies and group discussion, this class will focus on one of
history's most significant efforts to achieve working-class freedom: The Spanish
Revolution of 1936.

Come learn, discuss, and debate the lessons from this heroic, but ultimately
failed attempt to kick the bosses out.

The class meets Saturdays October 14 - November 18 from 3-5 pm at the new
Minneapolis Central Library -- 300 Nicollet Mall Conference Room N-202.

The WORK PEOPLES COLLEGE is free and open to all interested workers, retirees,
and students. (There maybe some costs for class materials). Childcare will be
available - Please call ahead.

Register at twincities@iww.org or (612) 339-4418

Ongoing Study Group: *Anarchist Anthropology Study Group*

*Anarchist Anthropology Study Group* contact: erriiik@riseup.net (erik)

Join local activists, students, anarchists, and community members to explore
how the scholarly discipline of anthropology, itself a mechanism of the
Western colonial apparatus, can be looked to for ethnographic examples of
egalitarian forms of social life that can inform our present-day struggles
against capitalism and oppression.

We have already met once, but it's not too late to join in. Just send an email
to the contact listed above, and try to read pp1-64 of David Graeber's
"Fragments of an Anarchist Anthropology" (available at:
http://www.prickly-paradigm.com/paradigm14.pdf)

Our next meeting: Sunday Afternoons The Jack Pine Community Center 2815 E. Lake St.

Child care will be provided on request. Please email the contact above ahead of time.

The direction of the group will be determined collectively by those who are
involved, although we will use a syllabus (below) developed at the Anarchist U
in Toronto as our starting point. (available at
http://www.anarchistu.org/twiki/view/Anarchistu/AnarchistAnthropology)

If you are interested in the IWW, the WORK PEOPLES COLLEGE, or organizing at
your job. Pease get in touch.

The Industrial Workers of the World is a union founded in 1905 on the common
sense idea that the workers and the bosses have nothing in common. Our union
is controlled directly by the members; we have low dues and no bureaucracy.
We organize in any and all industries including those not usually associated
with unions. We welcome workers of all nationalities, races, genders and ages.

Solidarity Forever!
