What is anarchism, can it work? Workshop/General Discussion 6pm
Anarchism is a political theory that advocates for the abolition of all systems of oppression and hierarchy (including the state, police and capitalism). It insists that organization of society should be in a voluntary and cooperative manner, instead of being based on competition and force.
Today, many believe that anarchism implies chaos and lawlessness. Others, who may agree with the main tenets of the theory, claim that it is impossible for humans to attain such a society.
However, there have been countless examples of anarchist societies dating back thousands of years. From the Mbuti tribes of central Africa to revolutionary Catalonia, human beings have continually shown that a better world is possible.
On February 22nd, we will have a workshop highlighting several historical instances of anarchism in practice, as well as the different “strains” of anarchism that have developed since its inception as a political and social movement. This will be followed by a general discussion on what anarchism means to us as individuals and anything else people may want to talk about.
The venue is situated on the south side of Blood Alley Square. There are several cobblestones, but there is ramp access and it’s an open space once inside. There are fewer cobblestones to navigate coming from Abbott vs Carrall. The washroom is not fully WC accessible, the doorway is about 27 inches wide.
38 Blood Alley First Week of Events
Open Hours 4pm-7pm
Tuesday Film Nights: 69 Ungdomshuset Screening
7:00pm Tuesday February 3 2015
Feb 3rd Film 69 Ungdomshuset (English Subtitles)
“69” is a documentary about a large group of young people who did not see themselves, culturally or politically, as part of established society. In 1982 they lawfully occupied what was known as the Youth House (Ungdomshuset) at Jagtvej 69, on the outskirts of Copenhagen’s inner city. The film portrays the group’s situation in 2007, documenting the stormy last six months of the Youth House’s history, where the radicalized group rage against the establishment. By following the inner circle of activists, we learn more about the group, the reasons for their actions, and the cause of their predicament.

Updated About: What is 38 blood alley?!?
38 Blood Alley is an anarchist social space located in Blood Alley on Occupied Coast Salish Territory (Vancouver). Our goal is to enhance the anarchist struggle though events, discussions, critiques, literature, and fundraisers. Anyone is welcome to attend our events but being an asshole or a cop is never welcomed. We are open during events and every Tuesday from 4pm-7pm.
For over a year now we have had dozens of events from movie nights to prisoner benefits to dance parties and reading discussions. We encourage people to host events that would suit our space or to come check it out. Anyone can have an events as long as it falls around anarchist lines e.g does not promote dialogue and reform with the state. We are also always looking for more people to hang out and potentially join our collective.
Open during events and Tuesdays 4pm-7pm
BY DONATION/ FREE ZINE LIBRARY
Our space has zine library with dozens of titles ranging from anarchism to queer insurrection and is constantly being updated. We hope to have over 100 titles by early 2015.
