EVENT: 13 OCTOBER 2007

The New England subregional assembly of the Northeast ANarchist Network (NEAN) will be held on October 13th and 14th. Help us in building this Anarchist Network by solidifying our movement in our subregion, connecting our local struggles, and building the skills we need to agitate and organize for an anti-authoritarian and horizontal popular movement for autonomy.

The Northeast Anarchist Network (NEAN), is a horizontal network of anarchist collectives that thus far stretches from Pittsburgh to Maine, and Cape Cod to Syracuse, NY. We have had four founding meetings thus far, the first right here in Boston, one in Amherst, one in Syracuse, and one in New York City. At the last meeting, we solidified Network wide committees, such as outreach, defense, education and media committees, and began to organize for a NEAN contingent at the IMF protests in DC from October 19th-12st (the weekend after our Subregional).
The NEAN, being a regional network, is split up into subregions. The New England subregional assembly of the NEAN will be held on October 13th and 14th. Help us in building this Anarchist Network by solidifying our movement in our subregion, connecting our local struggles, and building the skills we need to agitate and organize for an anti-authoritarian and horizontal popular movement for autonomy.
As our Network's decision-making structure is consensus by the Network's local collectives and organizations, please consider with your local group affiliating with the Network. (See end of message for Points of Unity and contact info)

----------------------------------------------------


Day 1:
Focused on networking and developing skills. We will also give a report-back on the process of building the Northeast Anarchist Network. Please bring literature about your organization and a table for our anarchist "org fair." Have skills to share? Let us know! Skillshare list thus far:
Know your Rights (Boston ABC), Street Tactics-focusing on D.C. (BAAM) Research training, and more!
Saturday, October 13th,
12-5pm
119 Gallery
119 Chelmsford Street
Lowell, MA 01851

Day 2:
This is the bulk of the meeting. Talk about projects, local, regional and national! Please send in suggestions for the agenda and proposals ASAP Sunday 10-6...7... whenever we feel like it.
Lowell Telecommunications
246 Market Street
Lowell, MA 01853

------------------------------

Northeast Anarchist Network, Points of Unity:
1. A very clear rejection of capitalism, imperialism, and
authoritarianism.
2. A rejection of all forms and systems of domination. Embracing the full dignity of all.
3. An attitude of active resistance towards all state, corporate, and other oppressive institutions.
4. A call to direct action, support for emancipatory social movements, advocating for the liberation of all, as well as the construction of local alternatives.
5. An organizational philosophy based on decentralization and autonomy. This network is specifically inclusive of all Anarchist struggles and supports all of them so long as they adhere to these Points of Unity, even though not everyone in the Network might consider a particular struggle a priority. Anarchists must show solidarity with each other's struggles as a principle of revolutionary necessity. In order to embody these values, we see the need for an Anarchist social revolution.



-----------

Some things to remember!

I. Getting there

1. You can get to both the 119 gallery as well as LTC easily from the train
station.
a. To 119: Take a left as you are leaving the building, and another left onto Thorndike street. follow Thorndike until you see an underpass (actually a rotary). Go up the hill, staying on the left-hand side of the street. Take yr first left at the top of the hill -- (onto Chelmsford St). Walk down Chelmsford until you see the 119 Gallery on yr right.
b. To LTC: Follow Thorndike, again, going up over the rotary then down again. Thorndike becomes Dutton. Take a right at the Haffner's gas station -- This will be Market St. LTC will be on yr right.

2. Both locations are also easily accessible from the highway. Take 495 to the Lowell Connector, then take the Thorndike St exit (second to last exit on yr right). Directions are pretty much the same as if you were coming from the train station. So i won't bother repeating.

>>Parking is FREE on weekends -- do not feed the meters. At the 119 there is a parking lot as well as street parking. At LTC, you may park in the Visitor's lot (off of Dutton street, take a right at the set of lights before Market St) or just park on Market St.


II. Staying here/eating here

1. If you need a place to stay, or have a place to stay in Boston or Lowell, please contact me (Kimberly). There is space available in Lowell now, we can probably house 25 people or so.

2. TJ's, a vegan pizza place in Boston, will be donating pizzas for the first day. We could use help obtaining/cooking food for Sunday, so definitely get in touch if that's your thing.


-----------------------------



I think that's all the information I have for you all right now! Please let me know if i have left anything out, or if you have any clarifying questions/concerns/etc.

As much as this pains those who have participated in the anarchist communist experience between 2011 and 2014 in the Canadian prairies, today, Prairie Struggle announces its official secession and subsequent disbandment. To this day, Prairie Struggle was the only specific platformist organization in the Canadians prairies. Though some may recall the existence of an anarchist communist group in Regina affiliated to the ACF (Anarchist Communist Federation of North America) in the 80s, organized anarchism in the prairies has had many difficulties, some of which the Prairie Struggle Project has failed to overcome. Despite its downfall, Prairie Struggle, for one last time, offers a look into the organization, its failures and its small victories.

pso.jpg imageThe creation of Prairie Struggle Organization, its politics and its goals 18:00 Di 05 Jun by Prairie Struggle Organization 0 comments

In the last 5 months, some anarchists from Regina have been engaged in the difficult process of creating a revolutionary anarchist organization and debating its political influences. As a result of these meetings and debates, we are proud to finally announce the existence of Prairie Struggle Organization based in Regina. To hopefully start a dialogue with anarchists in the west of Canada and beyond, we feel it important to let you know why anarchist politics in Regina are taking this direction.

textM1 Mayday Statement 23:54 Mo 30 Apr by Chris Alexander 0 comments

Since May 1, 2006 we have seen a slow opening up of mass struggles on a scale not seen in recent memory, amplified by the silent economic crash in 2008. From the massive day without an immigrant to the historic Arab Spring; the Wisconsin workers uprising to the prisoners strikes in Georgia and California; Occupy Wall Street to the rallies for Justice for Trayvon Martin; General strikes of students in Chile and Quebec and of workers in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. People committed to real change cannot help but feel the wind in our sails. People are rising and refusing, struggles are igniting, common ground is revealing itself, we are beginning to feel and take back our power, everywhere.

Despite the rise of new fighting forces, pain is growing not decreasing. Symbolic changes at the peak of empire—codename Obama—have only served to further entrench the direction of decline, with Democrats bringing the stick when the Republicans aren’t there to make their bad cop look good. Deportations have increased, prisons are overflowing, the local face of a global war given new legitimacy, while organized racist violence dares to seize an ever greater public stage. Cutbacks and the destruction of public safety nets pay for corporate welfare and bankers’ bailouts. Ecological destruction continues apace: tar sands mining, fracking, nuclear power, and the daily grind of a system that cannot long coexist with dignified human life on earth.

Mayday is not only a time to remember the sacrifices of so many before us who fought against all authority – capitalism and the state, patriarchy and white supremacy, empire and ecocide – but also a time to reflect on and celebrate the achievements of our movements today. In recent months the world has again been changed by the actions of masses of ordinary people.

imageAre Anarchists Socialists? Feb 18 by Wayne Price 3 comments

**Many people regard anarchism and socialism as contradictory programs. This is based on the conception of "socialism" as state ownership of the economy. Yet historically, anarchists have regarded this program as "state socialism" or "authoritarian socialism." They have rejected such views in favor of "anarchist-socialism" or "libertarian socialism." This concept of anarchism as a variety of socialism remains important today in opposition to pro-capitalist "libertarianism" and to "democratic socialism"--that is, reformist state socialism.**

imageSome of My Past Political Mistakes Apr 15 by Wayne Price 2 comments

In the 1980s I participated in a "dialogue" about anarchism and Marxism. Re-reading my writing now, when I am a revolutionary anarchist, I think that much of what I wrote then was wrong--with one exception. I went over certain key issues, such as the strengths and weaknesses of Marxism, the state, the revolutionary party, election participation, and national liberation--topics which are still important for anarchists and other radicals to consider and debate.

textThe Road Not Taken Jul 06 by David Van Deusen/Lady/Black Heart Anarchist Collective 0 comments

"The Road Not Taken" is a historic proposal that was provided to the Federation of Revolutionary Anarchist Collectives (FRAC) from the Black Heart Anarchist Collective-Columbus Ohio in 2001. Previous to now this proposal was treated as an internal FRAC document and has never been made available online or to the public. Ultimately the proposal was not adopted by FRAC. It is being provided now as it shows some of the internal debate and discussions that were taking place in the anarchist movement shortly after The Battle of Seattle. The document also highlights one road that aspects of the anarchist movement viewed as open to it, even if this road was never taken. Now that we are struggling against an increasing fascist tendency in the U.S. and beyond [2017], we as a movement need to explore those crossroads that post-Seattle presented us, and re-evaluate the strategic and tactical directions the movement took then in order for us in the present to build a stronger more effective movement today.

This proposal was provided to the still forming Federation of Revolutionary Anarchist Collectives (Great Lakes Region-Midwest) in December, 2001 by the Black Heart Anarchist Collective (Columbus, Ohio). It was not adopted by the federation. It was also sent to the Northeast Federation of Anarcho Communists. David Van Deusen wrote this document with Lady. The proposal was adopted as a position by the Black Heart Anarchist Collective as a whole, whose members also had input into the content. The Black Heart Anarchist Collective was an offshoot of Anti-Racist Action-Columbus. The collective (which included Van Deusen, Lady, Dustin, Noah, and others) formed for the primary purpose of engaging in discussions with other regional anarchist collectives about forming the Federation of Revolutionary Anarchist Collectives. The Black Heart Anarchist Collective were participants in a number of meetings leading up to the creation of the federation. However, prior to the official formation of the federation Van Deusen & Lady moved back to Vermont, the collective disbanded, and was never an official member collective of the federation. Van Deusen (who co-founded The Green Mountain Anarchist Collective) was in Ohio, and a member of Anti-Racist Action, for some time in 2001-2002. The Federation of Revolutionary Anarchist Collectives folded in 2005.
