1st Annual Torch Network Conference Being Held In Chicago

On September 12th, 13th, and 14th of 2014, South Side Chicago ARA will be hosting the 1st Annual Torch Network Conference. Torch is a North American antifascist Network that evolved out of the Anti-Racist Action network. This conference has 2 parts; A private portion reserved for vouched antifascist chapters within the network (get vouched in now!) and a public portion for any and all antifascists interested in either the network or simply meeting other antifascists and having a good time. There will be workshops, tables, and more.

If you have any questions or want to become a vouched chapter before the conference, email us a southsidechicagoara@hushmail.com

We will post a detailed schedule in the coming months!

Event date: 
Thursday, September 11, 2014 - 21 to Sunday, September 14, 2014 - 20

I assume that the name of this conference is a reference to the old newspaper, The Torch, put out by a group of Trotskyists centered in Chicago called the Revolutionary Socialist League, before they decided (collectively, of course) to disband and reinvent themselves as anarchists, starting the Love & Rage Federation with Chris Gunderson. Love & Rage was quickly outed as an "anarcho-leninist" group, and eventually broke up.

IT'S A CONSPIRACY!

thanks for that lil refresher!

Why so far away? I suppose fascism is just a potential future issue in the US... and just a matter of a few fringe groups of gutter macho men...
