DATE AND TIME: FEBRUARY 18, 2012 AT 7PM
Maia Ramnath’s new book is on the anti-authoritarian elements of India’s liberation struggle, examining the history of South Asian struggles against colonialism. It is the third title in the Anarchist Interventions book series, co-published between AK Press and the Institute for Anarchist Studies. Come hear about decolonizing anarchism. Copies will be available at a reduced cost.
Also in attendance will be members of the Institute for Anarchist Studies (IAS). Because the IAS is a 501(c)3 we have a board of directors, the policy making collective of the organization. Board members will introduce themselves, talk about their organizing work and thoughts about contemporary politics, and attendees will have a chance to talk with them informally.
