Unsettling Anarchism:
Bringing Decolonization Home

Saturday, August 17th at 7:30pm
Red and Black Cafe,
400 SE 12th Ave, Portland

The topic of decolonization has yielded much useful terrain for examining identity and national liberation, solidarity and self-determination, and the right of the oppressed to their own priorities. Less developed are how this shakes the foundations of the way anarchism is constructed and who and what determines its contours.  We will briefly explore and discuss this transformation through the lenses of South Asian social movements, the literature of US/Third World feminism, and emergent Arab anarchist movements.
