BASTARD Conference 2016

From BASTARD Conference

We are running a little late but, as you can probably imagine, finding a place to hold an anarchist theory conference isn't as easy as it used to be. In our case it is as much about aging as it is about the horrorshow of land pricing but either way we now have a venue. The Omni Commons will be hosting the 2016 Berkeley Anarchist Students of Theory, And Research, & Development conference.


Cleveland 2016 Think Outside The Convention

“If elections could change anything they’d be illegal.” Enough with phony partisan politics and lesser of evil elections. Join THE PEOPLE outside the convention to expose the party of xenophobia and eco suicide. Social justice activists typically target the Democratic Party for its hypocrisy pretending to be the “people’s party” but both parties represent the corporations, promote war, injustice and inequity. Let’s deprive the corporate political system of our consent to govern. They serve at our pleasure, not displeasure

The activists of Occupy Denver voted to send an expeditionary force to the Cleveland RNC to help conduct demonstrations against America’s undemocratic electoral process. We want to expose the RNC and protest its racist mercenary core. There is no "conservative revolution" overtaking America. That's the media promoting idiocracy. American idiots meet People Power expressing itself against widening income gaps and environmental suicide.

Chicago May Day 2015 Radical Coalition Events

May Day, or International Workers' Day, is an annual holiday which occurs on the first of May. Born out of fight for the eight-hour working day in Chicago and the state-sanctioned murder of the Haymarket Martyrs (History of May Day), May Day is celebrated today as a time for all members of the working class to stand united and show the bosses, landlords, and all of the ruling class that we are still not afraid. May Day is a time to fight for self-management and ownership of our workplaces, schools, and communities, raise class consciousness, inspire rank and file leadership, build militant unionism, fight artificial borders and deportations, and demand an end to state violence and repression.
