Eric will discuss the importance of supporting political prisoners along with so much more. If you are in the area, please come, check it out and tell a friend! In the six month span between when his first and second co-defendants took deals to cooperate with federal authorities and testify against Eric, he started down a long road as an anarchist prisoner.

Fight Training: 1st Hour Beginner, 2nd Hour Intermediate

As the fighters in Rojava have said, we fight better when we fight in the right way – the right way in this case is with the solid relationships between folks.

We invite folks to come together to get to know each other better, to help each other learn new techniques and practice old ones. This will be a fight training skillshare. Two trainers will be present to facilitate, but we also encourage people to come who are trained in other fighting arts. We can exchange skills and knowledge and practice together. Beginners are welcome and encouraged! This will […]

Silvia Federici presents: Our Mother Ocean and Family, Welfare and the State

In a time of profound economic and ecological crisis, Mariarosa Dalla Costa and Monica Chilese’s Our Mother Ocean (Common Notions, 2014) is a long-overdue reminder that the ocean is an integral terrain of struggle for the preservation of dignity and life. The book’s translator, longtime feminist author and activist Silvia Federici, presents the ocean as a site of many struggles and many commons and tells the story of the Fisherman’s Movement from its beginnings in Southern India to its central role in the struggle against neoliberal globalization. Mariarosa Dalla Costa’s Family, Welfare, and the State (Common Notions, 2015) reflects on the history of struggles around the New Deal and the Great Depression in which workers’ initiatives forced a new relationship with the state on the terrain of social reproduction. Renowned feminist […]

Stop the Rheingold Development — Open Meeting

We’ve been working hard in the last snowy weeks to prepare a course of action. Join the Brooklyn Solidarity Network and friends for this open meeting to get involved in the campaign and help put a stop to the rampant rent increases and destabilization plaguing Bushwick! Here’s a little background about the project: The 10 block, ultra expensive Rheingold development has been described by developers as a ‘game-changer’. We recognize that once this development hits Bushwick, the process of gentrification will reach unprecedented heights, forcing more people out and making basic goods expensive. We have begun a historic campaign to stop this development and help put control of the community into the hands of people who live here. We invite friends […]
