8/15/17: Towards an Anarchist Ecology

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017

For the next discussion we will be reading “Towards an Anarchist Ecology”, which is a series of essays written by the group Knowing the Land is Resistance, who are concerned with deepening their relationships to the land and natural world. In these texts they discuss their experiences engaging in these processes, while taking on some tough questions regarding their statuses as settlers on stolen Native land, ecology in urban settings, and their attempts to deflate the assumed importance of “expertise” in ecology/naturalist circles.

The texts can all be read online here, and a PDF for printing here (heads up, it’s 25 MB).

We will be meeting at Boxcar Books, 408 E. 6th Street, starting at 7 PM. Read & Revolt is a discussion group seeking to analyze this society and the potential for liberation from an anarchist perspective.
