Reminder: Next Radical Reading
Consider coming out even if you haven't before -- we hope to have a good
discussion around different forms of activism.
The term used in the reading is "dual power" -- it conceptualizes activism
as that which counters existing institutions while simultaneously creating
alternative ones. It diviides activism into categories such as "direct"
and "indirect" actions. -- do these make any sense? is it useful to make
such distinctions in our activist work? Does this reflect or capture the
activites going on in tao and/or opirg? How could we use these definitions
to aid us? etc. .
Date and Time: May 17, 7pm
Location: Octopus Books (we have decided to keep rotating locations)
