reading for 9/7

first tuesday of the month! potluck! woo hoo! come hang out and bring/eat food (preferably vegan and wheat free). make friends with the nice people (and the glowery people will just sit quietly in the corner for the duration 😉 ).
the reading is “locked up” by Bonanno.
then 9/14 we will be continuing the theme of anarchist queer theory with the reading from pink & black attack #6, “preliminary notes on procreation…” brought to us by the copying skills of jean (yay jean!).

reading for 8.3

we’re back to reading two letters a week, so for the 3rd we’re reading yarostan 7 and sophia 7. also lee brought in an article by john moore from the magazine social anarchism #20 called prophets of the new world:chomsky, bookchin, & perlman.

remember, this is also potluck week. bring vegan food! come at 7pm! eat! talk!


the readings are going awesomely, we continue to have lively conversations. last week we talked about objects vs subjects and of course about work.

i hope that we can start doing brief recaps of the whole book at the beginning of each reading group, for the people who haven’t been able to keep up (or just are having difficulty following the time line).
we’re now on sophia’s fifth letter.

reading for 7/13

we had a lovely and exciting time three days ago – talking about writing as representation and the question of illegalism, what is really revolutionary behavior.
and the food was good too.

for the 13th we’ll be reading the fifth letter by yarostan (sophia’s fifth letter will be the following week, since the letters are getting longer).

reading for 6/29

we’re continuing with the amazing Letters of Insurgents, the third pair of letters. there continue to be blog entries and oddly chosen pictures at
also, copies of letters of insurgents are now available for those of us who like to hold the book in our sweaty little hands.

on 6/22 we had a solid showing, including a new person who had personal experience in (and was willing to talk about) repression and contradictions in venezuela (and other places) in the past 30 years or so.

reading for 6/15

the first two letters (yarostan and sofia)… from letters of insurgents.
