Anarchism and Punk – Call for Chapters

From jimdonaghey at noblogs

Anarchism and Punk – edited volume
There has been a wealth of excellent writing about punk over the last few years. The best of these have been the critical reflections that pull free of the quagmire of 1970s nostalgia, and the critical engagements that see beyond the narrow scope of punk’s Anglo-American birthing ponds. This Call for Chapters proposes to continue and extend that exciting work by considering in closer detail the relationships between anarchism and punk, with a contemporary emphasis and a global spread.

This Week in History, 1978: Punk rockers and Anarchists stage an Anti-Canada Day concert in Stanley Park

From The Vancouver Sun

There have been a lot of memorable rock concerts in Vancouver. But there’s never been anything quite like the Anti-Canada Day punk rock show in Stanley Park on July 1, 1978.

It was billed as an Anti-Canada Day concert because it was put on by anarchists, including Ken Lester, one of the organizers of the 1971 “Smoke-In” by hippies that turned into the Gastown Riot.

Being anarchists, they didn’t believe in getting a permit — a poster just said the show would be at Lumbermen’s Arch at 1 p.m.

Jack Halberstam on Wildness, Anarchy, and Growing Up Punk

In a way, the contemporary anarchist does not seek to make life better under the current conditions of exploitation and extraction, but tries, rather, to figure out how to bring things to the point of collapse. Because the system itself is what must be opposed—a representative democracy within which only rich, white people are represented.
