What the fuck does “BAAM” mean?
BAAM is simply the pleasant sound of authoritarianism being smashed.
Who the fuck are you?
BAAM is a general anarchist union in the Boston area. Our structure
reflects our belief that anarchist organizations should not be configured
in such a way that conflicts with the ultimate goal of a classless,
stateless society. We feel that being class conscious is not an enough;
we oppose authoritarianism in all its forms, including capitalism, the
State, and all forms of oppression such as racism, sexism, nationalism,
xenophobia, homophobia, and environmental devastation.

What the fuck does BAAM support, anyway?
We support democratically run grassroots community organizations,
wildcat unions that practice shop floor democracy and any other
collectively run egalitarian organization.

Are you Fucking Serious?

Totally. Capitalists have done a pretty good job of teaching us that
capitalism is the only way things can be run in this world. But really
capitalism has only been around for a short period of time especially if
you consider it is only now extending its global corporate fingers to all
sections of the globe. True, capitalism has done a lot of damage in this
short period of time but it is by no mean inevitable. People all over the
world cooperate and help each other everyday to survive capitalism. And
resistance is growing northwards from the he global south as farmers and
workers join together to say "enough is enough" So yes, we are totally
serious, we are growing and we will win.

What the fuck do you do?
We hold skill share workshops and participate in direct action while
supporting local manifestations of the global struggle. We've been
involved in actions including picket lines, anti-war protests,
anti-capitalist street theater, and agitating the bosses and those who
support their oppression. Our past workshops have covered wheat
pasting, self-defense, silk screening, folk science, and information
sharing. All activities are run in an openly anarchist fashion.

BAAM fucking rocks! I wanna fucking join!
BAAM has regular monthly planning meetings on the first Tuesday of
every month at 7pm at the Lucy Parsons Center in Boston. Before
coming, please feel free to check out our brief statement on our
structure/working rules. For all other BAAM! events, check out the
