Critical Reading and Discussion Group on Anti-Oppression

Saturday February 15th, 2pm

38 Blood Alley Square

Getting together to discuss Anti-Oppression, using two writings as reference points:
Who Is Oakland? – “written collaboratively by a group of people of color, women, and queers – and is offered in deep solidarity with anyone committed to ending identity-based oppression and exploitation materially.

Lines In Sand: Three essays on identity, oppression, and social war – By Peter Gelderloos, shooting criticism in two directions, this zine tackles both anarchists who categorically reject “identity politics” as well as activists who embrace the anti-oppression ideology and close off paths to revolution.
