If you have an interest in these ideas or seeing the books we will be bringing with us from Little Black Cart then come on down and join us for presentation and conversation.

Black Seed is a new, trans-continental, green publication. Its emphasis is on developing a conversation informed by, but critical of, Earth First!, Deep Green Resistance, and Green Anarchy magazine.

Why are we interested in conversation when the world is in such need? Exactly because things are so desperate we believe that face-to-face, personal, and close conversation is needed. The firebrands who have come before, especially in the context of the North American environmental movement, have demonstrated the limitations of crisis thinking. The horrorshow of the petro-economy; of valuing consumer devices over life; and of our utter forgetfulness about the world around us and where we have come from, has to be confronted person-to-person. Another mass culture solution will be absorbed faster than you can say Earth Day.

This discussion will be presenting and fleshing out the editorial of our first issue, discussing the questions of appropriate roles for Anthropology, Spirituality, Rewilding, and what it means to have a respectful outsider relationship to Indigenous communities, culture, and lifeways.

Join us in conversation about our publication and the green power of face-to-face discussion about changing the world.

lots of luck with your project and tour

what does this have to do with anarchy (anarcho-syndicalism of course the only true form of anarchism)?

I acknowledge your comment and show the most appreciation towards your reference to the Black Flame book.

Are there specific locations for some of the events ?

Some of those places have infoshops and bookstores that might great venues (Center Street Free Space in Milwaukee, Boxcar Books in Bloomington, but Urbana does not have many great spaces. The Champaign-Urbana Independent Media Center is overrun by Liberal Democrat Party officials.

Does Chicago have any radical spaces for such talks to even happen ? I think the Mess Hall is closed and Biblioteca Popular never restarted.

The last LBC tour was hosted by a space called "The Ribcage" if I remember correctly, but I have no idea whether it still exists or is hosting public events.

Yeah, I think the Ribcage place is connected to the Theatre of the Oppressed or something like that.

Yay, coming to Buffalo!!! I love you! <3

yay!

no place listed for rochester, ny date... assuming flying squirrel? and time?

looking forward.

I'd wager it will be flying squirrel. I wonder if all the RR&Bers will go and troll it.

Come to the SE... old south like

Fuck the South!

Fuck I thought this was going to be a project That Big Asshole was going to be only quietly involved in. So sad to see that's not the case....
