Announcing the 2013 Carrboro Anarchist Bookfair!

carrboro-anarchist-bookfair-posterThe fourth annual Carrboro Anarchist Book Fair will take place in Chapel Hill, North Carolina on November 23, 2013! Please join us for an exciting weekend of discussions, bibliophily, entertainment… and surprises.

North Carolina has earned a reputation as a hub of anarchist organizing and publishing. Two years ago, at the peak of Occupy, the 2011 Carrboro Anarchist Book Fair climaxed with the occupation of a vacant building downtown, drawing attention from around the world. Last summer, North Carolina hosted the nationwide gathering of the radical environmentalist Earth First! network, while in nearby Durham, anarchists participated in spirited demonstrations against the murder of Trayvon Martin. Come learn about the ideas driving these events, and connect with local and regional projects.

Save the date! And if you are involved with a radical bookshop, organizing group, or publishing project, now is the time to get in touch. (more…)

What is Radical Rush?

Radical Rush Week is a week of events (9/2 to 9/9) celebrating the possibilities for liberation and political struggle in the UNC community.

From their website:

We need to find each other.

Did you come to UNC hoping to fight oppression? Do you dream that this university would be a space against capitalism, white supremacy, patriarchy, homophobia, and ecocide?  Are you looking for the on-campus resources that will connect you with the struggle against drones, surveillance, empire, deportation, austerity, sweatshops and war?
Did you come to UNC hoping to build worlds that blossom and sustain diversity? Are you hoping to build spaces where people can speak justice, and do just things together? What beautiful thing would you build as you build a community? (more…)

2nd Reading Group for Caliban and the Witch

calibanThe second meet-up of the Caliban and the Witch reading group is this coming Monday, June 3rd, at 7pm at I Books. We’ll be discussing the second and third chapters; please come with interesting topics to talk about, points from the book you’d like to discuss, questions, etc.

If you missed the first night, it’s not too late to pick up a copy at I Books and catch up!

For folks curious about the text, here is a description from the publisher:

Caliban and the Witch is a history of the body in the transition to capitalism. Moving from the peasant revolts of the late Middle Ages to the witch hunts and the rise of mechanical philosophy, Federici investigates the capitalist rationalization of social reproduction. She shows how the struggle against the rebel body and the conflict between body and mind are essential conditions for the development of labor power and self-ownership, two central principles of modern social organization.”
