A - I N F O S N E W S S E R V I C E

Twice a year, the Institute for Anarchist Studies awards $4000 USD to
radical writers from around the globe in need of financial support.
Through the IAS's granting program we are able to support radical
scholarship on antiauthoritarian subjects and further the fight for a
free world. The Institute for Anarchist Studies is pleased to announce
the recipients of its summer 2003 IAS grant.

Global Finance Capital and the Permanent War:
The Dollar, Wall Street and the War Against Irak
Kolya Abramsky - $1,000.00
This translation project will make available Ramon Fernandez Duran's
Spanish work of the same title in English. In Global Finance Capitol and
the Permanent War, Duran shows how the Dollar, and financial
institutions such as Wall Street and the IMF, force global capitalism
into a permanent state of war in order to maintain its hegemonic control
of the international marketplace. This study shows the emerging tensions
between capitalist powers while contributing to international
anticapitalist resistance through the advancement of communally and
democratically controlled economies of solidarity.

19 and 20:
Notes for the New Social Protagonism
Nate Holdren - $1,000.00
This translation project will make available the Argentinian group
Colectivo Situaciones' Spanish book on the eruptions in Argentina on the
19th and 20th of December 2001. The insights offered by this group on
these important days that shook the world is particularly important as
the CS are a collective of militant intellectuals who participated in
these events and continue to be active in Argentinian anticapitalist
movements. CS' autonomist marxist politics attempts to to do away with
hierarchical and vanguardist baggage, suffered by other within the
autonomist tradition, brings it very close to contemporary anarchism.
The theoretical insights of CS provides rich material that anarchists
can employ in understanding and challenging the capitalist world.

Voices of Popular Power in Argentina
Marina Sitrin - $2,000.00
Through interviews, this book length project brings together various
activists involved in the Argentinian autonomous social movements. The
movements are some of the most innovative and visionary with regards to
the politics of creation, inventing a new political conversation with
regards to power and hierarchy, as well as democracy. The neighborhood
assemblies, movements of unemployed workers, and occupied factories
movements are all organizing in ways that are consciously directly
democratic and autonomous, naming this politics, horizontalidad. This
collection of interviews both helps to represent these movements while
also adding to the global conversation on means of resistance.

About the IAS

The Institute for Anarchist Studies , a nonprofit foundation established
in 1996 to support the development of anarchism, is primarily a
grant-giving organization for radical writers. To date, we have funded
over forty projects by authors from countries around the world,
including Argentina, Canada, Chile, Ireland, Nigeria, Germany, South
Africa, and the United States. We also publish a biannual newsletter,
Perspectives on Anarchist Theory, to cultivate community among those
interested in the development of anarchism and keep supporters apprised
of our accomplishments. The IAS is part of a larger movement to
radically transform society as well. We are internally democratic and
work in solidarity with people around the globe who share our values.

Support Radical Scholarship

For the summer 2003 granting session, we are please to have received a
sizable increase in the number of applications submitted. As always, the
financial limitations of our granting program doesn't allow us to meet
the full needs of struggling antiauthoritarian authors. The IAS and its
programs is fully dependant upon the support of the international
anarchist community. Please consider making a donation to help us
further this important work.
