PANEL OR FORUM North Korea: Its Mystery and Its Reality

The June Anarchist Forum

On Tuesday June 10, at 7:30pm.

The Libertarian Book Club's Anarchist Forum will
present a forum on North Korea:

Its Mystery and Its Reality. John Kim, the coordinator
of the Korea Peace Campaign (a project of Veterans for
Peace,) will tell us about this secretive country. What
is it really like? How and in what ways is it left-wing?
What about its leadership cult and its philosophy of Juche?
Does it have weapons of mass destruction? Are North Koreans
happier than south Koreans?

Mr. Kim will also discuss the current nuclear crisis in
Korea and U.S.-Korean relations. After his presentation
John Kim will answer questions and respond to whatever
comments the audience wishes to make.

The event will take place at the Brecht Forum on the 10th
floor of 122 West 27th St. [between 6th and 7th Ave.], a
short walk from the 28th St. 1, 2, N, and R stops, the 34th St.
B, D, and Q stop, and the 23rd St. F and V stop.

There is no set fee for the presentation, but a contribution
to aid the LBC is requested. If you have questions, contact
the LBC /Anarchist Forum, 212-979-8353, 339 Lafayette St.,
Room 202, NYC, NY 10012

or e-mail: roberterler [at] erols.com.

phone # (212) 677-1863

So what's up with this newswire anyway?

Who started this newswire?

It was originally set up by the projects collective (brooklyn, ny).

Who can submit news and other stuff?

You need to register (get a user name and password) in order to
submit articles to the newswire (look for the link in the main
menu block on the left hand side). Your submissions then go into
a queue and those with higher permissions get to accept or deny
your submissions.

What can be posted?

News and events, protests, meetings, and other stuff like study
groups and workshops, that have some sort of connection to New
York City AND anarchism / anarchists.

Anarchist event in California? Nope. New Jersey? Maybe.

An opinion piece written by a local anarchist on flowers and
why we should smell them on a regular basis? Yup. Same piece by
someone known to belong to a non-anarchist or non anti-authoritarian
group? Probably not.

Also, if you submit an event that can be easily found elsewhere
(like the NYC Indymedia wire) then it will probably get rejected.

I made a submission but it doesn't show up on the wire. Why?

Your submission needs to be approved by someone with "permissions".
It may take some time.

How do I get "permissions"?

By registering, then submitting relevant and on topic news and items,
on a regular basis. And getting to know the rest of the newswire community.
You can also ask the projects collective, and if we know you, we may
give you permission.

What might be the reason for unaccepted or deleted news or items?

The administrators or moderators have decided that you are a
"troll" (see HERE), or you have posted sectarian or generally
rude attacks on other activists or organizers, or you simply
submitted off topic news or event announcements to the wire.

What about the comments sections?

The admins and moderators reserve the right to delete and /or
modify any and all comments posted by users as long as those
comments break with the non-sectarian, non-abusive criteria of
this section.
