In our conversation, we cover a lot of ground, starting largely with a critique and conversation about Left Unity, as well as a look back on the “movement of movements” approach in the anti-globalization period as well as the horizontal structures of Occupy. We discuss some of the organizational needs of the current age, as well as what groups that exist now are already doing to put these ideas into practice.

This new zine published in Kingston, Ontario discusses both the challenges and advantages of being an anarchist in smaller places. The first two pieces are reflections on workshops facilitated by the authors on these questions in North Carolina and Virginia. The third piece is a From Embers interview with Christine from Prince Edward County on rural organizing. The last piece is a report-back on Kingston's 2018 May Day.

There was a great discussion afterwards included in the audio. For full notes including quotes and references you can go here

It’s 2018 and, once again, the specter of war haunts us—in the headlines as well as in the depressing certainty that the politicians and other elites who rule the societies of this world persist in maintaining the exploitative death-culture hierarchy of white-hetero-patriarchal Imperial-colonial-capitalism.
