We’re asking for help to keep Boxcar Books & Community Center going. For various reasons outlined below, we’re facing difficulty keeping our space open and need help. We currently don’t have money to pay rent for April, and will have to close if we can’t raise at least $1000 by next week.

If I were to write a book about post-anarchist social movements it would be titled: “anarchist social movements do not exist.” This argument occurred to me during a conversation with a friend this afternoon. His claim, which is not at all an unfamiliar one for anarchist scholars, was that anarchist social movements do not follow the logic of the new social movement paradigm (e.g., a demand for recognition). I remembered Richard Day’s influential claim that anarchist social movements are not what sociologists would describe as social movements at all. Instead, he referred to them as the ‘newest social movements,’ and outlined their alternative logic.

I realize it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. That’s my fault. Hopefully, you’ll forgive me.
In my last post, I made a plea for Anarchists in Space. Since then, I’ve received letters from people who support the concept and even some just speaking about the concept. I think this is good. It’s a start. However, it’s not an end. I want to develop a means to an end to transform my and others’ dream into a reality.
If you would like to donate to Casey’s fundraising goals, (which he explains in detail at the end of the article) you can send him money via the Missouri Department of Corrections and their outsourced inmate money transfer provider, Access Corrections. Or, if you would like to send a money order (which can be relatively anonymous) you can write to Casey and ask him to send you a deposit slip.
Anarchists in Space!?
Someone once said, “You can't take words into space” but they must have never met this cadre of self-proclaimed anarchists from Siberia. Somewhere in the sparsely populated polar deserts of the region, a group of anarchists have recently completed their endeavor, building a space ship meant to launch a book into the far off galaxies of the universe.

A lot has changed in the past quarter. The heat of summer finally abated and the El Nino rains have begun! There has been a noticeable downtick in drama around these parts and the fourth annual East Bay Book & Conversation Event went swimmingly. We are very proud of the titles we have to offer you this quarter and look forward to your feedback.
