Next Wednesday students and education staff will be demonstrating in London over cuts to education.

In attempt to engage anarchist struggle with the broader anti-cuts movement we will be sending ‘as it happens action reports’ to our twitter account. This will allow those unable to attend to stay updated with what is taking place but also allow retrospective analysis to take place.

We will also be distributing copies of Communique from an Absent Future for free on the day. The unions involved in this protest have called for the Government to ‘Fund Our Future’. As anarchists we demand not only an end to the most recent assaults on everyone outside the elite class, especially poor and working class people, but also that we recognise that another world is possible. One in which Governments, Banks and Corporate leaders no longer determine our future. Communique from an Absent Future addresses this issue from the perspective of someone within the educational system.

Anarchists have also made calls for a more militant presence on Wednesdays protests.

Anarchist Bookfair 2010

London Anarchist Bookfair
Saturday 23rd October
Queen Mary’s, University of London
www.anarchistbookfair.org.uk

We will have our usual table at this years London Anarchist Bookfair. We will be selling everything from CrimethInc. to The Coming Insurection, Emma Goldman to Peter Gelderloos.

As well as the usual reading material we are also setting up shop for our friends at Just Seeds this year. This is how they describe themselves:

Just Seeds is a decentralized network of 26 artists committed to making print and design work that reflects a radical social, environmental, and political stance. With members working from the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, Justseeds operates both as a unified collaboration of similarly minded printmakers and as a loose collection of creative individuals with unique viewpoints and working methods.

The bookfair has an amazing selections of workshops and discussions to take part in, including a talk from John Pilger, and meetings to organise against Government cuts to public services. See timetable

We are working on some major changes to the look and function of the site. It’s pretty exciting but you will have to bear with us whilst we get the work done.

Thanks

There is some vague irony about finding a Chumbawamba CD in a dumpster 1,000s of miles from England in Columbus, Ohio. Maybe all the darlings of DIY punk turned bad will one day find their greatest hits resting between discarded bibles and broken sewing machines at the bottom of the trash. File under worthless.

The Zion mountains turn into the Rockies, the world rotates back on us and somewhere along the highway we loose an hour. Life has become a blur at this point.

Denver is a happy sight. Or as happy a sight as a huge culmination of metal, brick and glass dropped some place after a mountain range can be. We had finished our journey, for today day at least.

We ate vegan ice-cream sandwiches in the hot afternoon sun and browsed the shelves of Denver’s second hand bookshops. We wandered the streets stopping for burritos drowned in green chili and drank our body weight in high fructose corn syrup.

The venue in Denver was in a huge warehouse called the 27 Social Centre. The space houses a functioning print business that pays the rent for the whole set-up. The rest of the vast building houses IWW offices, performance space, an infoshop, gallery and meeting space and the Denver Zine Library.

Thanks to Kelly (check out his zine) and Mary for showing us support and kindness in titanic proportions.

We stayed with friends in North Oakland, ate Ethiopian food and hung out in their garden watching the bees from their beehive meander through tall plots of tomato plants.

We talked about a local campaign organising against injunctions that local police had placed on supposed Oakland gang members. There are plans to broaden the injunction and police have already been using it to justify racial profiling. The injunction is splitting a community by force and the campaign argues for a productive community response to violence in the area. Oakland also witnessed the killing of Oscar Grant by BART police last year, which sparked several riots in the area. You can find more information about the injunction at http://stoptheinjunction.wordpress.com

We had scheduled a visit to AK press to pick up some copies of Isy’s cookbook ‘Another Dinner is Possible‘. When we got there we spent some time looking through their vast warehouse full of books. AK press is a worker-run publishing collective with a huge back catalog of anti-authoritarian titles. The magnitude of the project is outstanding, a truly inspiring undertaking.

Next door to AK press live 1984 Printers. A radical and environmentally friendly printers that printed some of Edd’s comic here in the USA. They where kind enough to give us a tour around the print shop and even gave us free samples of some of the titles they have printed.

We have been short on time and wifi access to keep the blog up to date the last few days. Hopefully we will get a chance to catch up some point soon. But I wanted to say thanks to all the amazing people we have met over the time we have been here. The spaces we have visited are truly inspirational and we have talked to folks about some amazing projects, which hopefully we will get time to share here at some point.

In the mean time I got this photo of this great mural in San Fransisco. Unfortunately it was behind a fence.
