(en) US, Worcester, MA: Anarchist Theory and Action Workshop / Skill Share Series

Date Fri, 28 Dec 2007 09:35:03 +0200

The Stone Soup Learning Co-op will offer this Skill Share Series beginning
January 16th. All are welcome to participate in one or all of these workshops.
Each workshop will be participatory and accessible to people of many differing
levels of experience with these topics. --- If you are interested in attending
this workshop series please email anne@riseup.net so that you can be added to
the list to receive readings and information about the workshops. --- January
16th --- Intro to Anarchist Theory: --- There are many theoretical lineages that
anarchist and anti-authoritarian ideas come from. In this session we will
explore the theories of individualist anarchists, anarcho-syndicalists, social
anarchists and anarcho-primitivists. Though the majority of this workshop series
will focus on social anarchism, this session will explore how different
historical tendencies in anarchist thought have informed the anti-authoritarian
and anti-capitalist movements that exist today.

January 23rd
Dual Power Strategy:
Building counter institutions is as important to building the world we want to
see as directly confronting the State. In this session we will discuss movements
and groups who have built effective counter institutions while continuing to
confront systems of oppression.

January 230th
Direct Action Planning:
From building affinity groups, to writing a press release, to using specific
tactics such as banner drops, sit ins, this session will get down to the nuts
and bolts of successful direct action planning.

February 6th
Mass Mobilizations: Anti-Authoritarian and Anti-Capitalists confront the
Republican Nation Convention 2008
Members of the RNC Welcoming Committee from Minnesota will be in Worcester to
discuss strategy and planning for the RNC demonstrations in September 2008. We
will discuss with them what we have learned from past Mass Mobilizations and
strategy going in the Republican National Convention in September.

February 13th
Dealing With Repression:
In this Session we will explore the current climate of repression against
anarchists, anti-capitalists, and environmentalists. We will look at repression
used against groups in the past such as the Black Panthers and look at the Green
Scare tactics. We will talk about how to combat these tactics of repression. We
will also discuss building an effective Security Culture among activists and
groups in Worcester and beyond.

February 20th
Direct Democracy:
When we use directly democratic decision making and problem solving at meetings
we are prefiguring an anarchist politic. During this session we will discuss the
theory of Direct Democracy and the praxis that we use in our daily lives. We
will also discuss our experiences with facilitation and consensus
decision-making in hopes of building our collective decision making skills.

February 27th
In this unjust and oppressive world we constantly need to combat these
tendencies with in ourselves and in the Movement. In this session we will
discuss how we experience patriarchy, white supremacy, heterosexism, ableism,
and classism in our activism and organizing. We will also discuss strategies to
create anti-oppressive horizontal spaces.

March 4th
Building the Movement:
Who are our allies? Who should we be working with? How can we build our
regional, national, and international connections? How do we excite and inspire
people to become part of the work we are doing? How can we be good allies to
other’s struggles? How can we tone our outreach skills? These are just some of
the questions we will tackle in this movement building session.

A suggested donation of $5 to $10 per workshop will go to support the Stone Soup
Learning Co-op Free School. No one will be turned away due to inability to pay.
